E-poster presentation size issue – LIGA 2011 New Delhi

As I am creating a poster of a clinical case for LIGA 2011 New Delhi, I feel that I must share this with all of my blog readers. The poster will be displayed at the LIGA conference on LCD 42 inch size. The E-poster will be displayed on standard 42” (Diagonal) LCD, and File format should be Powerpoint (.PPT). What exact size of the page should be of PPT?

I tested various sizes of the image that should fit in 42 inch LCD at home. And finally I got the answer.

Your ppt size should be:

width = 36.7 inch
height = 20.4 inch

I am going to create the poster in this size. Please take care of other guidelines issued by LIGA organisers.
