Stander Poster PowerPoint Template
Poster Content & Design Presentation (Google Doc)
Save PowerPoint Presentations as PDF Files

Think of a poster as a summary of your work, advertisement of your research, and source of information. A poster is visual communication of your research, not your research copy and pasted on to a slide. Here are some good examples of a final poster:
Example 1: Chemistry (PDF) >>
Example 2: Biology (PDF) >>
Example 3: Health and Sport Science (PDF) >>
Example 4: Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering (PDF) >>

Overall, please remember that poster sessions are posters. Displays should be graphical in nature and easy to read from several feet away.

1.  The poster board surfaces are three (3) feet high by four (4) feet wide. A table will be provided for you to place handouts or other supplementary materials on. Pins or thumbtacks for mounting your display are provided. These are the only materials provided to you.

2.  A heading should be prepared for your presentation using lettering at least one and one half (1 ½) inches high. Indicate the title of the presentation, the name(s) of the presenter(s), their department, and their faculty advisor(s)/co-advisor(s) on the heading.

3.  All lettering should be simple, bold, and easily legible at a distance of (4) feet.

4.  Visuals should dominate your presentation. Think in terms of graphic impact. Charts, drawings, photographs, and other illustrations are encouraged.

5. Download and use the prepared PowerPoint template, which will help you determine font sizes and image quality control. Consult with your faculty advisor on the content and design of your poster.

6. Your poster should

  • be only ONE page and horizontal (final printed size will be 48 inches wide by 36 inches high).
  • be saved as a PDF and submitted as a PDF.
  • NOT include watermarks or color backgrounds (your file should be no larger than 48 MB).
  • use high-resolution images for best printing results (300 dpi).
  • be reviewed by your faculty advisor BEFORE you print it.

Need writing support? Make an appointment with the Write Place to have one of their staff review your poster. To learn more about the Write Place and to schedule an appointment visit their website.

Please include the name in the body of the email. Submit your poster by Monday, April 11, 2022 at 11:59 p.m. No posters will be accepted after this date.
