Poster presentation


  • Poster size: The maximum size allowed for your poster is 90 cm in width by 120 cm in height. All posters must fit within this size. The preferred format is A0 (84.1cm x 116.9cm).
  • Poster structure: You need to give your poster an understandable structure. The following points are suggested:


    Authors and affiliations. Speaker name should be underlined

    Introduction (background, motivation, purpose of research)

    Materials and Methods (assign scientific name for your materials)



    Conclusion and future plan

    Reference, acknowledgement, or URL, if required

  • Appearance: Font size of body text should be easily legible by someone standing up to 2m away and up to 5m for the main title. Long lines of text are very difficult to follow, and too small fonts are also difficult to read. Separate each part by columns would facilitate understanding your excellent research to the audience. Assign number for each logical block or enclose them with a box would also help to understand the logical flow. You don't need to use many font styles (less is better). Changing the size or font face (bold or italic) is a simple, but effective way to emphasize important part of your poster.



  • Posters will be on display throughout the duration of the Symposium and will be discussed during specific poster sessions.

     Set-up: 11/13 2018 from 12:00 to 17:00 and 11/14 2018 from 09:00 to 10:00

     Break-down: 11/15 2018 starting at 16:30.

    Poster for the presentation will be mounted on boards. The authors are kindly requested to use a pushpin to hang the poster. We will provide pushpin at the venue. Don't use your own adhesive tape, nail, peg, stapler, glue or gum.

    • Student Award

      • For encouraging students to participate and submit the research, during the symposium two student awards will be given from ISHS:

        one award for the best oral presentation given by a student who is in the same time the presenter and first author of the submitted manuscript

        one award for the best poster presented by a student who is first author of the work

        ISHS Student Award winners will be recognized in each symposium report published in the quarterly ISHS membership magazine Chronica Horticulturae, including a photo of the award ceremony or the award winners and a brief outline of the winners. Awardees will be invited to write a summary on their research, to be considered for publication in Chronica Horticulturae. A one-year complimentary membership of the ISHS and a Certificate will be awarded to the winners.
