  • Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics and make sure every item is necessary.
  • Include the title of your presentation. India Section of AOAC INTERNATIONAL will not post the abstract titles on display boards.
  • Use large and legible lettering that is easily readable from a distance of 3 feet or more. Text material should be printed from a laser printer with a font size large enough to read from a distance. Simple use of color can be used to add emphasis if needed.
  • Photographs, illustrations and graphics are encouraged, and should be large enough to ensure visibility.

Optional Materials: If you wish, you may prepare handouts for distribution to interested scientists.


  • Three best posters will felicitated by RSC and given a chance to present their work on the 2nd day of the conference.
  • Authors of selected outstanding posters will be invited to submit extended versions of their papers for consideration of publication in the Journal of AOAC International.
