Poster Session

All participants are encouraged to present their own research at one of the poster sessions on Wednesday August 6, or Tuesday August 12 at 6pm - 7pm during the Institute. Topics for these sessions are not limited to the theme of the Institute. Poster submissions are due by Friday, July 18, 2014. Poster submission should follow the Call-for-proposal page on Indico. Note that the submission requires a CERN login ID, or some social media ID. You can request a lightweight CERN ID online very easily for all CERN Indico usage.

General Instructions

In a poster session there is no oral presentation of paper as in a conventional paper session. Instead, each author will be assigned one 76 cm x 101 cm (30” x 40”) black foam board on which diagrams, graphs, data, picture, and small amount of text may be mounted. The form board will be mounted on an easel. Each author will be expected to remain with his/her poster presentation throughout the 60-minute poster session.

Poster Guidelines
  • DO use large, easy-to-read letters
  • DO include a heading title, with Author(s) and Institution(s)
  • DO include a brief abstract
  • DO include clear figures and tables
  • DO NOT simply post up typed pages from your paper
  • DO NOT clutter poster with details
  • Posters should be self-explanatory
Poster Area Description

Your poster materials will be displayed on an 76 cm x 101 cm (30” x 40”) black foam board. You will be provided with tape or thumbtacks to mount your papers to the board. No audiovisual equipment will be supplied. It is suggested that poster authors make preprints of their papers available to participants.


The poster should be readable from a distance of a least 1.5 m (5 feet). Suggested sizes include: minimum graph size 25 cm (10”), section heading letter 1 cm (1/3”), and text and figure lettering not less than 0.5 cm (1/8”)
