How to make a poster

You will know if your poster is among the 10 chosen ones Monday 19 August, and the deadline for submitting the finished posters for print is Friday 30 August
 . You can also chose to print yourself.

If we chose your poster, we will send you the guide below via e-mail.

What is a poster?
A scientific poster is literally a poster. The poster usually presents a research idea, article or thesis with a little texts, illustrations, tables and likewise. Some are text heavy, others are more graphic. It can be a good idea to think about how much you want to talk yourself - you can keep it simple if you prefer to present in person, or you can use more text if you want people to only ask you if they have doubts about our context.

How does a poster look? (Important info about size)
You can use the UCPH design guide template for posters: designguide.ku.dk

But you can also search for templates online but be aware that some templates uses the American paper measurement system, Letters, and we will not be able to assist with printing if you use this system.
The size should be either A1 or A0 (see 'Criteria' above).

How do I print the poster?
IFRO will print the posters for the 10 chosen poster presenters.

Where can I find pictures for my poster?
Remember that you need to have the right to use the pictures for the poster.
If you need pictures, there are a lot of pictures that you can use for non-commercial use for free here:
