Abstract POSTER guidelines

All authors of abstracts accepted for poster presentation are required to produce a poster to be displayed at the ASM and on the RA-UK meeting app. This must be an Adobe Acrobat file (pdf).

Posters should meet the following criteria:

  • All posters must be A0 (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm).

  • All posters must be portrait

  • Text size and font is at the discretion of the authors but text must be clear and legible

  • Colour is recommended, particularly for imagery

  • All posters must have the title at the top, in bold.

  • Authors must be clearly shown

PDF's must be emailed to by 23rd April 2024.

Please try and be available during the session breaks to answer any questions that attendees reviewing your poster on the boards may wish to ask, and check and respond to any comments/questions left online regarding your work. These may come from the reviewers!

Additionally, if you have a Twitter account and would like to receive questions from the RA-UK ASM delegates regarding your poster, add your Twitter handle at the bottom of the poster.

Presenting authors are invited to present to the reviewers at times specified below. Presentations will take place beside your poster in the display area. Please note that the abstracts have already been marked.

You can register at:

Please note, you are unable to present virtually.

Presentations are an opportunity to briefly present your poster and for reviewers to informally discuss your work.

Posters will not be printed for you.

Please either bring a printed A0 colour poster with you to the event or utilise our partner printing service Science Posters: who will print the poster and we will put the poster up for you.  Deadline for this is the 23rd April.

Finally, if you haven’t made a scientific poster before; 

  • Poster templates are widely available online. 

  • Use the same structure as the abstract submission. 

  • The text is not required to be the same as the abstract, but usually abstracts contain about the right amount of text for a scientific paper. 

  • Use colour and figures to supplement the text.
