Poster size. The maximum size allowed for your poster is
80 cm in width by 110 cm in height. All posters must fit
within this size.

to use many font styles (less is better). Changing the size or
font face (bold or italic) is a simple, but effective way to

not preferable for a handicapped person, and also for many
audiences. Following URL provides a suggestion on color selection
