All posters must be uploaded in PDF/A format for better visualization on a wide range of systems. Instructions on how to generate a file with high quality and reasonable files from popular tools are suggested below.
All posters must have the IBIC 2020 logo (available in black and white versions) visible, with the poster code assigned by SPMS easily visible for easy reference by readers who have downloaded your poster.
The poster should follow the traditional printed format, and as long as readability is observed, you may chose between usual formats. We suggest following the traditional A0 portrait, or a similar format around 80x120 cm, format as in previous IBIC editions. A0 landscape format is also a good alternative for viewing the poster by the screen sharing.
Templates for different poster formats may be found in the following websites:
To ensure files with high quality and low file size for downloading, and also to avoid problems caused by differences in computer setup, please follow the following technical guidelines:
- Format: PDF/A
- Image resolution: 150dpi
- JPEG compression: 90%
