A poster session is a graphic presentation of an author’s research. Authors illustrate their study findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams, and a small amount of text on poster boards.

Poster presentation can be submitted by scholars and MA/PhD students. The poster size should be A1 (59.4 x 84.1 cm). This size meets the requirements for most conferences. All posters will be displayed in a single one-hour session. Poster presenters are required to be present with their poster during the session.

  • Sections and sequence of materials should be clearly indicated but kept simple. Ideally, a well-constructed poster will be self-explanatory, understandable to the viewer, freeing the presenter from answering obvious questions. Presenters can thus be available to supplement and discuss particular points of interest.
  • Successful poster presentations are those which achieve coverage and clarity but also display an uncluttered and straightforward design.
  • Arrows clearly indicating the flow of information from introduction to conclusion are always helpful.
  • The focus should be on major findings and not on everything you know.


Presenting authors should print their physical poster based on the requirements. The University American College Skopje does not print posters on behalf of presenters.
