Accepted Poster Guidelines
You are asked to follow these guidelines when submitting an abstract for poster presentation.
In case you have submitted an abstract for flash presentation you are required to present your poster as well as 5-min presentation.
There are two sessions for poster presentations: 16:45 to 18:00 on Tuesday 7 and Thirsday 9 June 2016. During these times there will be many delegates walking around the Hall and you are therefore required to be present to discuss your poster with any delegates that are interested to know more.
The board numbers, corresponding to numbered boards at the conference venue, will be published in the printed programme.
Please respect the board number you are given which will correspond to the list in the programme. The boards are located in the “Poster Area” of the Exhibition Hall.
All posters are required to conform to PORTRAIT ORIENTATION. Failure to follow this requirement will mean that the poster will NOT FIT on the allotted board.
• Poster BOARD dimensions = 1 m wide x 2.25 m high. If printing on one page, use size A0 PORTRAIT ORIENTATION (0.84 x 1.19 m). Alternatively, a number of smaller sheets can be used to create a larger collage, but do not go beyond a maximum ‘layout’ height of 1.5 m.
• Posters should be clear and easy to read. Type size should be sufficiently large to allow people to read from 2-3 metres. (Minimum of 1 cm high for text and 2.5 cm high for titles). DO NOT REDUCE TEXT SIZE IN ORDER TO FIT MORE INFORMATION ONTO THE POSTER.
• Design the poster to convey a CLEAR MESSAGE. If this is not obvious to the reader after reading the introduction, the message is NOT CLEAR and the reader will move on to an alternative poster, which provides the correct impact.
• Avoid overload – too much information seriously detracts from the overall impact. LESS IS BEST!
