  1. Poster Title -- two by three foot poster: horizontal format M15 Student’s Name, Mentor’s Name M15 Research Day, Georgetown University School of Medicine, Washington, D.C. Results Abstract Layout The overall layout for each section of this template will probably need to be modified, depending on the amount of content in each section and the size and number of charts, figures, and photographs. You might prefer a single, large column in the middle to accommodate a large amount of content. Figures Figures imported into PowerPoint should be in JPEG format and should be of adequate resolution for printing. Files taken from a website are usually too low in resolution and will likely appear fuzzy or ‘pixellated’. To properly import a file, in the Menu bar at the top of PowerPoint, select Insert > Picture > From File. A ‘roll-up’ poster is a single large sheet displayed at a scientific conference, which communicates your research. The poster is usually organized into sections. Sometimes it is helpful to sketch out on paper how your poster content is to be organized. If you are not following the standard 'Abstract, Introduction, Methods, Results, Discussion, Conclusion' presentation, make sure you “chunk up" your content into organized sections. A poster converted from a 20-slide PowerPoint presentation will look like 20 slides on paper. But grouping similar slides under common headings will make the content more appealing and easier to read. Consider using shaded rectangles, outlined rectangles, or prominent headings to let the viewer know which information is related. Try organizing your content in 3 to 5 columns to begin with. These columns will probably need to be adjusted once all your content is brought in. A B C A Word about Using Text Boxes in PowerPoint A text box is a paragraph or a series of 'connected' paragraphs in PowerPoint. When you select a text box by clicking on it, a hatched bounding box appears around it. Text boxes can be filled with a light color and stroked with an outline, if you wish. Gradient fills and / or transparencies DO NOT print. Choose a light solid color instead . Fig. 1(A-C). Make sure figure legends have enough detail to fully describe what is being shown. A) Legend font sizes could be slightly smaller or in a different font than the main poster text. B) Keep in mind they must be legible and your figures are very important to support the rest of the content of your poster. C) Another way to differentiate legend from main content is to make the legend text a different color. Using Guidelines Using guidelines is a helpful way to assure that text boxes, figures, etc. are lined up properly. To make sure your guidelines are viewable, in the Drawing Menu Bar (PowerPoint 2007 and higher) at the top, select Arrange > Align> Grid Settings then make sure ‘Display Drawing Guides on Screen’ has a check next to it. Once guidelines appear, you can add more by placing your mouse on an existing guideline, holding down the Control key (PC) and dragging. A new guideline will appear. Introduction Fig. 2. Figure legends could also be placed to the right of figures. Font Issues The type size for your poster content should be in the neighborhood of 20 – 24 points, this will vary from poster to poster dependent upon content. Usually a non-serif typeface, like Arial, or Arial Narrow, is best. We’ve found it to be more legible than Times New Roman and often looks ‘cleaner’. IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not use WordArt styles or text effects, such as shadows, glow, reflections, etc. The poster background fill should be white. Conclusions The Conclusion(s) should be prominent. The text in conclusions could be larger than the bulk of the content in your poster to draw attention to it. It may also be set off in with a light colored background. Discussion Copy/Paste Text can be copied from another PowerPoint file (or another application like Word) and pasted into your poster layout. Likely it will have to be reformatted to fit your poster. Images and tables may be copied and pasted from other Microsoft applications. In most cases though, it is best to import photos and figures properly using the INSERT menu. Methods References • References can usually be printed in a smaller typesize. These references are in 10 point. Usually they are numbered and keyed to references in the content of the poster. • References can usually be printed in a smaller typesize. These references are in 10 point. • References can usually be printed in a smaller typesize. These references are in 10 point. • References can usually be printed in a smaller typesize. These references are in 10 point. Poster Dimensions Usually your meeting website will provide you with the dimensions of your display area so that you can design your poster to an appropriate size. The dimensions for the Fourth Year Research Day presentation are 24” x 36” horizontal (this template is sized with these dimesnions). Roll up posters are not particularly difficult to create in PowerPoint. They just take a knowledge of the software’s features and limitations and an awareness of design and content organization. We hope you find this template useful when designing your own posters. Acknowledgments Poster produced by Faculty & Curriculum Support, Georgetown University School of Medicine
