Poster and Oral Presentation Guidelines


  • We recommend each poster fits the size of 90cm x 120cm in portrait orientation.
  • The poster must be both, WRITTEN AND PRESENTED IN ENGLISH, otherwise it will not be considered.
  • The title and the authors must appear on the top of the poster.
  • We suggest the use of a font size legible from a 2-meter distance.
  • The given time for your presentation is limited to 7 minutes. A staff member will notify you when the remaining time is one minute. After the presentation, there will be a 3-minute discussion led by the professor responsible for assessing your performance.
  • Make sure your presentation contains: introduction, objectives, methods, results, conclusion, discussion, future prospective and references.
