Poster Presentation Guidelines

The 2019 ACCS Poster Sessions will be held at the front of the Agung Hall, Grand Inna Bali Beach Sanur at November 19, 2019. Poster presentations provide an opportunity for an interactive exchange of ideas between the presenter and audience interested in her/his study.

The objective of a poster is to outline the findings from research, program implementation or advocacy interventions clearly and concisely so that they can be understood even without an oral explanation— especially since posters will also be displayed and viewed even when the author is not present.

Poster Design Guidelines


Prepare a headline that is reflective of the research, program or intervention. Include the authors and their affiliations (institution/organization) under the header for identification.


The objective is to present the information clearly and simply in a visually appealing way. Be careful not to overload the poster with text and/or graphics. Please use a consistent style and sequence (left to right or top to bottom) to guide the viewer through the poster. You may use figures, tables, graphs and/or photographs where suitable. Keep the text brief and to the point.


Posters should include appropriately labeled illustrative graphs and diagrams as much as possible. Long textual passages should be avoided, and the methodology section generally should be brief unless it is the main focus of the abstract. Use a large font size for your text, such as 24-point and arrange materials in columns rather than in rows to make your poster more reader-friendly. Indicate the sequence of tables, figures or graphs with highlighted or colored numbers or letters at least one inch high.


Avoid using abbreviations, acronyms and/or jargon in your poster. Make sure the font is consistent throughout.


Most print shops offer several options for printing posters. There are no requirements for type of printing as long as it is no larger than A0 paper size measuring 84.1 cm (width) × 118.9 cm (height).


  • Consider providing a brief handout or copies of your poster to distribute to poster session attendees.
  • In order to facilitate your interaction with participants visiting your poster, we encourage you to prepare a short verbal description of your key findings.
  • If possible, at least one of the authors should be present during the entire poster session or when conference participants are expected to visit the poster.
  • Add contact information and website information for people with more questions.
