- I. All participants need to register and initially submit an abstract (max one page) of their work.
- II. All abstracts will be evaluated and only top 10 works will be qualified to compete in the poster competition where they will be required to prepare their work in poster format.
- III. All registered participants will be given participation certificates, all qualifiers will be given additional qualifier certificates and top three ranking posters will be given additional achievement certificates and cash prizes.
- IV. For registration details visit registration section.
Posters would be scored/evaluated using following criteria
- I. Quality of the work (research, idea, methodology)
- II. Technical Design (Layout, circuit diagrams, block diagrams, illustration, flow diagram, etc.)
- III. Poster presentation (Layout, clarity, organized, well defined charts)
- IV. Originality (own work, own contribution, own idea)
- V. Feasibility (impact on people/society/industry/environment, scope, practicality)
- VI. Technical contribution
- VII. Application
Checklist for preparing and presenting an effictive research poster
- I. Design poster to focus clearly on your work. If it is something rare, a brief introduction will be helpful but should be very small portion of your poster so you can emphasize on your work.
- II. Design questions to meet their interests and expected applications of your work.
- III. Paraphrase descriptions of complex things.
- IV. Spell out acronyms if used.
- V. Replace large detailed tables with charts or small, simplified tables, or pictures.
- VI. Accompany tables or charts with bulleted annotations of major findings.
Layout & format
- I. Organize the poster into background, data and methods, results, and study implications.
- II. Divide the material into sections on the poster. Arrows may help to guide the flow.
- III. Headings and other text having the same level of importance should be the same font size.
- IV. Avoid excessive text. (Poster should have roughly 30% text, 40% figures, 30% space)
- V. Leave breathing space around your text.
- VI. Do not use a different font type to highlight important points - otherwise the fluency and flow of your sentence can appear disrupted.
- VII. Do not use all UPPER CASE type in your posters. It can make the material difficult to read.
- VIII. Use the bold face or italics or combinations to emphasize words and phrases.
- IX. The poster should be of no larger than 48”x60”.
- X. Poster should be on self supported standee. Standee and poster is the responsibility of the participant.
Narrative Description (not compulsory but may help)
- I.Rehearse a three to four sentence overview of your research objectives and work.
- II. Write short modular descriptions of specific elements of the poster to choose among in response to viewer's questions.
- I. Background
- II. Summary of key elements and gaps in existing work
- III. Application, working, Data and methods
- IV. Each table, chart, or set of bulleted results
- V. Background
- VI. Research, policy, and practice implications
- III. Write a few questions to ask viewers.
- I. Solicit their input on your work
- II. Develop additional questions for later work
Handouts (not compulsory but may help)
- I. Prepare handouts to distribute to interested viewers.
- II. Print slides from presentation software, several to a page.
- III. Or package an executive summary or abstract with a few key tables or charts.
- IV. Include abstract and contact information.
- V. Your resume as many people from industry may be interested in you.

What is a research poster
Preparing a poster involves not only creating pages to be mounted in a conference hall, but also writing an associated
narrative and handouts, and anticipating the questions you are likely to encounter during the session. Each of these
elements should be adapted to the audience, which may include people with different levels of familiarity with your
topic and methods.
Posters are a hybrid form—more detailed than a speech but less than a paper, more interactive than either. In a speech, you (the presenter) determine the focus of the presentation, but in a poster session, the viewer drive that focus. Different people will ask about different facets of your research. Some might do policy work or research on a similar topic or with related data or methods. Others will have ideas about how to apply or extend your work, raising new questions or suggesting different contrasts, ways of classifying data, or presenting results.
By the end of an active poster session, you may have learned as much from your viewers as they have from you, especially if the topic, methods, or audience are new to you. In addition, presenting a poster provides excellent practice in explaining quickly and clearly why your project is important and what your findings mean—a useful skill to apply when revising a speech or paper on the same topic.
Writing for a varied professional audience
Audiences at professional conferences vary considerably in their substantive and methodological backgrounds. Some will be experts on your topic but not your methods, some will be experts on your methods but not your topic, and most will fall somewhere in between. In addition, advances in research methods imply that even researchers who received cutting-edge methodological training 10 or 20 years ago might not be conversant with the latest approaches. As you design your poster, provide enough background on both the topic and the methods to convey the purpose, findings, and implications of your research to the expected range of readers.
Telling a simple, clear story
Write so your audience can understand why your work is of interest to them, providing them with a clear take-home message that they can grasp in the few minutes they will spend at your poster. Experts in communications and poster design recommend planning your poster around two to three key points that you want your audience to walk away with, then designing the title, charts, and text to emphasize those points. Start by introducing the two or three key questions you have decided will be the focus of your poster, and then provide a brief overview of data and methods before presenting the evidence to answer those questions. Close with a summary of your findings and their implications for research and policy.
