Guidelines for Poster Presenters

Guidelines for the preparation of your scientific poster

➢ You should use the same title submitted with your abstract.

➢ You should materially confine your presentation to information you provided in the submitted abstract. However any results that have become available since submission of the abstract should be included.

Dimensions of your poster

➢ Each poster must be in portrait format.

➢ Each poster must be printed (at the cost of the author) and SHOULD NOT BE BIGGER than the following size: Height/tall= 1189mm, Width=841mm (AO Portrait).

➢ Any poster printed in landscape or larger than the provided board for display may not be displayed at the symposium.

Displaying your poster

➢ Posters will be displayed in the Exhibition Hall on the ground floor of the CCD.

➢ Poster presenters have access to the Exhibition Hall from 9am on Thursday, 11th August and posters should be in place by the first lunch break at 12.30pm. Posters should remain in situ for the remainder of the symposium.

➢ Each poster will be assigned a display number in the Poster area and authors must only place their poster on their allotted board.

➢ Each poster presenter will be provided with special Velcro stickers from the registration desk to attach their poster to their assigned board. Posters printed on canvas or heavy material are not recommended as they often prove too heavy to attach to poster boards, pins may not be used on the poster boards provided, only Velcro strips are permitted.

➢ Poster presenters are responsible for hanging their poster and then removing it at the end of the symposium.
