Poster Presenter Guidelines

 
 

Onsite at the Conference

Speakers will need to register at the registration desk when they first arrive at the conference to collect their name badge and other related materials. From there you will be directed to the Poster Display Area. A list of posters and allocated numbers will be available within the program for viewing upon your arrival. Please ensure that your poster is displayed on the correct poster board (each labelled with the assigned Poster ID). Do not place your poster in an alternate location.

Session Details

The program is subject to change so please ensure you check any changes with the registration desk at the conference site. In order to set-up your poster, it will be necessary to collect your badge first so you are able to gain access to the poster area. Poster mounting time is from 8 am and poster removal time will be updated on the conference day. Any posters remaining at the end of the conference will be discarded.
Your Poster Presentation
In addition to displaying a hard copy poster (A0 sized) in the designated area, each poster presenter will be allocated 3 minutes to present the introduction and the main highlights of the poster. Authors are requested to be present next to their poster during the poster judging session (please refer to the programme book). The posters can also be viewed during the lunch breaks. Please note that the official conference language is English. All presentations must be conducted in English.

Your Poster Preparation

The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract.

Posters should meet the following criteria:

TITLE: The title should reflect the content of your poster and match your abstract submission.
CONTACT INFORMATION: Name, organisation, e-mail address of the corresponding author and the affiliations of all co-authors should appear on the poster.
SIZE: The dimensions of the posters should be A0 size 0.841 m wide by 1.189 m high (portrait orientation). A small amount of thumb tacks for mounting your poster will be available in the poster area however we suggest that you bring your own thumb tacks/velcro to support your poster.
LETTERING: The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres. Use UPPER and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using mixtures of type/font styles.
