Maximize Poster Size
The maximum poster size for the Undergraduate Research Symposium is 36-inches by 42-inches (~92 cm x ~107 cm). A template can be downloaded here.
PARTICIPANTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR PRINTING THEIR OWN POSTERS.
Tips for Poster Makers:
- Do not use light colored text on dark backgrounds. It uses a lot of ink which may not print uniformly. Also, do not use complicated images for the background of your poster. If you do use an image, make it a watermark so that it does not distract the eyes too much.
- Test what size font works best for your poster. The text should be easily visible from a distance of 4-6 feet. Avoid using text that is too large.
Do not have large sections of text (except for the abstract) in block or paragraph format. Distill any pertinent text into short statement that can easily be read by the viewer.
