ICTO2017 poster session is a forum for researchers from around the world to
highlight their intellectual venture and to share their successful research
ideas with colleagues by presenting a research study, a practical
problem-solving effort, or an innovative field study.
Advantages of a Poster Session
- There is more opportunity for discussion with interested participants.
- More persons can view a poster than attend a session. A presentation during a session can only be heard once; a poster session can be discussed several times with many participants.
- The informal opportunity for networking and exchanging innovative ideas, and for useful feedback and discussion, can be greater with a poster presentation than with a session.
- Posters can be prepared ahead of time, so the presenter can relax and focus on other things while attending the conference and not be worried about the formal presentation of his work

The following information will help you prepare your research results so that you and your colleagues get the most benefit from your poster presentation.
What is a Poster Presentation?
A poster is a visual presentation of your research project. Use schematic diagrams,
graphs, tables and other strategies to direct the visual attention of the viewer, rather than explaining it using text as you would in a journal article.
A poster addresses one central question. State the question or hypothesis clearly in the poster and use your presentation to provide a clear and explicit take-home message.
The Poster Board
You will be provided with a poster board to mount your poster. The maximum permitted dimensions for your poster display are shown in the figure below. Posters MUST be in Portrait format. Your paper ID will be indicated on the board. Please note that the width of the poster board may not be exceeded under any circumstances. You will be provided with the material to mount your poster onto the board.Poster Size - AO (1189 by 841mm or 46.81 by 33.11 inches)
It is helpful to your colleagues when you provide a handout of your poster that includes your full contact information so they have access to your important ideas after the conference.
Title and Author
The title of your poster presentation and your name should be made in very LARGE type so that viewers can easily see the subject matter of the poster and its author from a distance (at least 1" lettering, or 36 point font). The title, author's name, and author’s affiliation are usually placed at the top and in the center of the poster board.
Posters usually have a similar structure to a research paper or journal article: an abstract, introduction (i.e., brief rationale or review of relevant research), method section, results section, and a conclusion or summary. You might also want to list key references.
