  1. OHTN Poster Template - Title: 90pt bold Authors and affiliations: 30pt bold Headings: 44pt bold Content: 36pt Preparing Your Poster for the OHTN Conference You are required to submit an ePoster to the OHTN conference no later than November 8, 2013. We will not accept late submissions, and you can not change your presentation on site. Instructions to create and submit your conference poster can be found at: http://conference.ohtn.on.ca/presentations.php. Your print poster If you are also submitting a print poster, please note that the size specifications for an ePoster are different than size of a print poster. ePosters will be displayed on large widescreen monitors. While you can submit the file you used to create your print poster, it will not fill the screen entirely (there will be black bars on the sides of your presentation): 42”x24” 42”x44” ePoster Template Print Poster Template Poster display Your poster will be displayed on a poster stand. You will need to pin or tack your poster to the board. The OHTN will provide push-pins, but you can bring your own tack or other mounting materials. We suggest you do not laminate your poster. Laminating your poster may result in mounting problems like curling or pulling off the board. For assistance with your presentation please contact: Jason Helbig (jhelbig@ohtn.on.ca) Manager, KTE 416-642-6486 x2212 • Tips For Preparing and Presenting Your Poster • Less is more • A well-constructed poster communicates your research to the viewer at a glance. Your content should be limited to only what is essential. Ask yourself the following questions as you design your Poster: • Will a casual observer walk away understanding my major findings after a quick perusal of my material? • Will a more careful reader learn enough to ask informed questions? • Suggested headings • 1. Issue 1. Introduction • 2. Approach 2. Methods • 3. Findings 3. Results • 4. Implications for Policy and Practice 4. Conclusions • An infographic is worth a thousand words • Posters are a visual medium. Use images and infographics to convey your messages. Graphics should be 300DPI or greater or they may appear blurry or pixelated. If necessary, indicate the ordering of your section with numbers, letters, or arrows. Balance the placement of text and graphics. Use white space creatively to define the flow of information. Columns make your poster easier to read. Your graphs should look professional and have labels. • Presenting your poster • Don't read the poster to your audience. Give the big picture of what you did, explain why the subject is important, and use the graphics to illustrate and support your key points. • Some questions to answer while making your presentation: • What’s the research question? • Why is this question important? • What strategy is used? • What are the results and why are they unique or important? • How does this relate to other research? • What comes next? How can your research be used to have an impact? • Promoting your poster • Want to promote your poster in advance of the conference? Give us an elevator pitch! Sit down in front of your computer, turn on your cam, and record no more than two minutes telling us about your research. Submit your elevator pitch no later than November 8, 2013, to Jason Helbig (jhelbig@ohtn.on.ca). Your pitch will be reviewed and may end up in OHTN promotional materials and on the OHTN website. Here’s an example of an elevator pitch (remember, yours must be no more than two minutes in length): • http://www.ohtnmedia.org/UWW/2011/1116ReaserchDay/EPitches/DKuzmanovic/
