Poster Presentations

Poster presentation details

 

Your poster board number and set-up/removal times will be included in final conference programme. Please note that the number allocated to your poster presentation will be on the corresponding poster board.

 

Posters will be displayed on a free-standing horizontal board in the exhibition area of Conference Center. Please report to the Conference registration desk for instructions where also attaching material (short pins/self-adhesive tape).

 

Your poster space allocation is A0 size (841 mm wide x 1189 mm high – maximum size). Please note there will be two posters per board so clear identification is absolutely essential. We recommend to consider having a synopsis of your research e.g. total of 25 A4 sized copies of the poster, available at your poster, or a business card if people wish to contact you after the congress. These are to be placed in pockets attached to the poster (presenter’s responsibility).

 

Please be advised that at least one of the authors of the poster must attend poster session!

 

Poster design instructions

 

1. Posters should include the name(s) and affiliations of the author(s) to facilitate identification at the conference.

2. All text lettering, diagrams and photographs should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5 m. Lettering used for titles should be 24 point minimum (preferably Arial font).

3. The use of figures and charts is suggested, avoiding excessive text.

4. The text appearing on the poster is to be written in English, suggested sections include:

  • Title: In English as it appears in the submitted abstract
  • Authors (main author’s photograph for identification is suggested)
  • Aim (brief)
  • Materials and Methods (brief)
  • Results (Captions and headings for photographs, tables, figures etc)
  • Conclusion/Discussion (brief)
  • References (limited to a maximum of 3)

5. In preparing the poster you should not attempt to detail your entire research history. Present only enough data to support conclusions or to explain the point(s) you wish to make. Data should be kept to a minimum in favour of diagrams and photographs. Aim to put across a simple message in an eye-catching manner.
