SIZE: Poster size (100 cm height X 80 cm width) in portrait orientation only.
AUDIENCE: We advise you to design your poster keeping in mind your audience - Do keep in mind that this is a mixed biology meeting, and many in the audience will not be experts in your subject.
CONTENT: As in a typically academic posters we suggest you follow the Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusion format if you are presenting a study in progress or one that is completed. You could otherwise present a proposed research direction you want feedback on, if you have a young lab. In either case, we advise you to add a short section called "Future Directions" that explains the directions you want your research program or group to take in the next few years.
DESIGN: We have a good one and half hours on most days devoted to posters, and suggest you make your posters exciting and attractive. Here are some guides that can help you design effective posters: http://www2.le.ac.uk/offices/ld/resources/presentations/designing-poster/designing-poster
