Submitting A Poster

The One Sentence Explanation of a Poster:

Colin Purrington (2013) writes that "A large-format poster is a document that can communicate your research at a conference, and is composed of a short title, an introduction to your burning question, an overview of your novel approach, your amazing results in graphical form, some insightful discussion of aforementioned results, a listing of previously published articles that are important to your research, and some brief acknowledgement of the tremendous assistance and financial support conned from others — if all text is kept to a minimum, a person could fully read your poster in under 5 minutes (really)."

ISSS Poster Sessions and How to Submit:

  1. You need to submit an abstract (see preparing and submitting an abstract) of your poster for approval;
  2. You need to send a PDF of your poster to to be loaded to the Journals site for the Conference; and
  3. You need to prepare your poster to bring to the conference.

There are many poster preparation guidelines available on the web, detailing how to best display your work for the benefit of those reading and talking about the poster with you.

In this conference, your posters should preferably be Size A1 (Flipchart paper size, 59 cm by 84cm, approx 24 in by 34 in).
