The poster presentation on Thesis Day is both digital and in person, making it possible for everyone to participate, regardless of where you are located, and providing an opportunity to reach a wider audience. We look forward to seeing your poster!

Please read the information below prior to submitting your poster.

Poster format

SLU has a template for scientific posters. In the template you can change the different elements according to your needs (color, images, text, etc.)

Make your poster using the power point template for scientific poster. Making the poster in programs like Adobe InDesign is also an option, as long as the size/dimensions are the same (printable A1 size / 59,4cm x 84,1 cm / 9933 x 7016 px) and you adhere to the policies for use of the SLU logo, etc. Recommended resolution is 200-300 dpi.

Digital seminars on how to make a poster are scheduled on 28 March and 3 May.
