Research posters invitation

We are inviting departments and research centres in European universities to submit posters featuring their research on China in the conference exhibition premises. Deadline 31 May 2018.

Poster Guidelines

The university has a poster production unit that will allow us to print research posters in house. However, they have specific requirements for set up. Please find these details below.

  • File format: Please send a Power point file and a PDF of the Power point file


  1. Please use high resolution images where possible (minimum of 300 dpi). Images are less likely to pixilate or warp upon printing. The dpi information can be found under the ‘details’ tab on the image and selecting property information
  2. Please ensure all images are appropriately referenced to ensure we do not breach copyright law

Set up your PowerPoint slide before creating your poster

  1. If creating on a PC: Design tab, Page setup
  2. If creating on a Mac: File, Page setup
  3. Overtype the slide sizes with your required size:
  4. A0 portrait: 84.1 x 118.9 cm (reverse figures for landscape orientation)

Font size guidance

  • Headings: 80-100 pt
  • Sub-headings: 40-80 pt
  • Main text: 20-40 pt
  • References: 16-20 pt


Try not to allow text to run across the full width of your poster. Splitting text into columns and text boxes is usually easier to read, and more striking from a distance.
