Poster presentations should:

1. Let your audience see your main points in less than a minute.

2. Be readable from a distance of 1-2 meters (use a font size of at least 24 or 30 point)

3. Use lower case rather than capitals because blocks of text in capitals are harder to read

4. Use no more than three different colors (also, some colors are harder to read at a distance)

5. Avoid using three dimensional graphics, because they are harder to read at a distance

6. Avoid putting too much material and text on the poster

In all cases, the Poster should contain the following material:

•  Header (Title and author names & addresses)
•  Introduction
•  Methods
•  Results (including statistics) preferably as graphs, figures
   and/or tables
•  Key References (if applicable)
•  Acknowledgements (if applicable)

HSC Poster Overview

The Poster Day Conference initiated in 1996 has now become enshrined as an annual event in the HSC academic calendar. It is most heartening to see that it has been consistently supported by the active and enthusiastic participation of not only the researchers of the HSC and Science Faculties of the University but as well by other institutions and hospital departments in Kuwait, and even from some outside of the country.
