About the Event

IIT Jodhpur is organizing its First Industry Day on 24th January 2020 with an objective to establish a close link between industries and our academic and research programs. IIT Jodhpur was established by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), GoI, along with the eight other IITs in 2008. Responding to the changing trends in the industry, IIT Jodhpur has introduced new UG, PG, and research programs in Artificial Intelligence, Data Science, Cyber-Physical Systems, Sensors, Internet of Things and Smart Manufacturing. The Institute now promotes interdisciplinary research in emerging domains, including Space Technology, Internet of Things, Digital Humanities, Autonomous Unmanned Vehicles, Smart Health, Cognitive Science, and Quantum Computing. Special provisions have been created in the curriculum for enabling students (UG, PG, Ph.D.) to pursue entrepreneurship or getting engaged in technology translation as part of their program.

Designing the Poster

Beginners can design their posters in MS PowerPoint by giving slide dimensions not exceeding A0 (33.11 x 46.81 inches).

The title of your poster should appear at the top with letters about 25 mm high. Below the title, put the author name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be from the top left to the bottom right. Use color for highlighting and to make your poster more attractive. Use pictures, diagrams, figures, etc., rather than text wherever possible. The smallest text on your poster should be at least 9 mm high, and the important points should be in a larger size. Use a sans-serif font to make the print easier to read from a distance.

During the Event (24 Jan 2020)

Posters must be put up as early as possible prior to the start of the poster session in the designated space. Push pins will be available to mount the poster.

Please prepare a 5-minute explanation of your poster, concentrating on the key points, and be ready to interact with the audience that approaches your poster. You must remain present for the entire duration of the poster session.
