Steven Chu1, Paul Alivisatos2, Jay Keasling2 1US Department of Energy, 2Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory EXAMPLE Poster Basics/Poster Layout Changing Column Layout Importing Photographs Content • Depending on how you lay out your poster, you may want to change the column layout configuration. • PowerPoint versions prior to 2007 - FORMAT>SLIDE DESIGN (Figure 5). The slide design pane will open. From there you can select an alternate layout (Figure 6). • PowerPoint 2007 – HOME >LAYOUT and select from drop down menu. CSEE Format 36 x 44” Landscape ONLY To start using this template you first need to delete most of the contents of this page. Keep the poster title, logos and at least one of the blue section headers in each column. The cleared template should now look like Figure 1. After you decide how many sections you need for your poster (Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Acknowledgements), use the “copy” and “paste” commands to create the correct number of copies of the blue section headers.Move the header copies approximately to where you think they need to be on the poster, so you can get a better sense of the overall poster layout. It will help you organize your content. See Figure 2. To add text, use the text tool to draw a text box starting from the left edge of a column to the right edge and start typing in your text. You can also paste the text you may have already copied from another source. See Figure 3.Repeat the process to complete your poster. • Use the largest images you have access to for your poster. • Avoid images downloaded from the web and avoid copying and pasting images • PowerPoint versions prior to 2007 - INSERT>PICTURE>FROM FILE (Figure 9). • PowerPoint 2007 - INSERT, select from drop down menu. • Abstract should appear in the first cell, and follow the format used in the version you submitted for your Bio/Abstract page (include any updates to your data) • The headings of each cell should reflect research abstract components: • Abstract (same as paragraph with Bio) • Introduction • Methods – procedures, models or programs used; likely to be subdivided into several cells. • Results – use graphs and images to convey your data as much as possible • Conclusion • Acknowledgements • Avoid pixelization when enlarging images. • Preview the printing quality of an image by zooming in at 100% or 200%, depending on the final size of the poster. What you’ll see is likely what you’ll get at printing time. (Figure 10). Customizing color schemes • If you want to change the default colors and use your own color scheme: • PowerPoint versions prior to 2007 -FORMAT>SLIDE DESIGN (Figure 7). The SLIDE DESIGN pane will open. Select COLOR SCHEMES (Figure 8). • PowerPoint 2007 – DESIGN>COLORS. There, you can try different color schemes until you find the one you like. Style • Use the third person • Concise, not conversational language • Consider using bullets instead of a narrative style (except for your abstract) • Use more images, graphics, less text • Title, up to 90 pt, bold in Arial, Georgia, Palatino or Tahoma font • Headers,50– 72 pt, bold in Arial, Georgia, Palatino or Tahoma font • Internal text, 28 - 44 pt in Georgia or Palatino font • Spell out acronyms the first time they are used (generally in Abstract) Labeling Headers The blue headers identify and separate the main topics of your presentation. The most commonly used headers in poster presentations are: Importing Tables & Graphs Acknowledgements • To import charts and graphs from Excel, Word or other applications: • PowerPoint versions prior to 2007 - EDIT>COPY, copy your chart and come back to PowerPoint. Go to EDIT>PASTE and paste the chart on the poster. • PowerPoint 2007 – INSERT and select chart or graph. • You can scale your charts and tables proportionally by holding down the Shift key and dragging in or out one of the corners. • List multiple authors below the title; lead mentor first. Check with your mentor about the number and order of authors and acknowledgements. • Acknowledge the Department of Energy’s Workforce Development of Teachers and Scientists (or just the DOE for BLIPS) as well as Berkeley Lab, CSEE, any additional funders and your specific mentor and Lab group members. Your mentor can advise you about this. Graphics / Images • Tell your story using graphics and images as much as possible • Crop and enlarge figures so that the data are highlighted • Remove any computer screen images i.e., the bar graph, not the tool bar • Label pictures, charts, graphs, etc., clearly and succinctly Logos • CSEE logo – tif format, most prominent, upper left • DOE logo – jpeg format, upper right • Logo of any funding source or Division, if needed, upper right, to left of DOE logo • If necessary, make the DOE logo slightly smaller in order to fit other logos in upper right corner
