Guidelines for Poster Presenters


Poster Size

The maximum size for posters is 120 cm high by 120 cm wide. Please do not exceed this size. Recommended sizes are A0 size (118.9 cm by 84.1 cm) for both portrait and landscape orientations.

Displaying Your Poster

Set up time to display your poster is on Wednesday 11 November from 8:30am to midday at the conference venue. Please proceed to the poster desk, where you will be allocated a number and provided with fixing material to display your poster on the appropriately numbered poster board.

Posters should be displayed for the full three days of the conference from 11 to 13 November. Please remove your poster between 17:00 and 18:00 on 13 November. Posters remaining after that time will need to be removed by the organizers.

Poster Session

The timing of the dedicated poster session will be announced as part of the conference program. During the poster session, we kindly ask you to stand by your poster for questions and discussions.

Poster Printing

Please have your poster printed before arriving at the conference as IIASA does not have facilities to print posters. If you wish to print your poster in Austria, we suggest contacting EBV, a printer based in Vienna, to discuss your printing requirements. They will also deliver the poster to IIASA for a small fee.

Systems Analysis 2015 is a green conference, therefore we encourage you to consider printing on recycled paper or FSC certified paper, and if available, using vegetable-based ink.

Poster Awards

Awards will be given to posters in the Closing Session of the conference.

How to Make a Good Poster

To ensure conference delegates can easily read posters, we recommend minimum font sizes of 60 pt for the title, 50 pt for headings, and 25 pt for text. A lot of valuable advice is available online on how to make a good scientific poster:
