Poster presentation guide

Posters will be on display in the Poster Area located in the CHINON hall, level -2. This year we will have three full day poster sessions. Each poster session is divided into two time slots, as follows:

Mornings: 09:30 am to 10:30 am (Posters with odd numbers will be presented)
Afternoons: 3.00 pm to 4.00 pm (Posters with even numbers will be presented)

Posters must be posted in the morning between 7:30 am to 8:00 am. They must be removed between 5:30 pm to 6:00 pm at the end of the day. Therefore, each poster will be displayed for a full day (8:00 am – 5:30 pm)

Student Paper Competition (SPC) posters will be displayed in a separate space located in level -1. To recognize an outstanding work of the students and their accomplishment, SPC posters will be on display for all three (3) days of the conference.  Student authors are required to be present for all six poster sessions to describe their work. Judges will review the SPC posters on Monday only.

We are also inviting student authors selected for SPC and whose abstracts were accepted as a poster to have their posters duplicated, so that they can be displayed in the poster session (CHINON hall) and in the space allocated to SPC.

  • Posters must be mounted using supplies provided by the organizing committee.
  • Each poster presenter is required to defend his/her poster during the respective poster session slot for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
  • Simply posting the pages of your written version of the proceedings paper is not effective and thus not acceptable for your poster.

  • All graphs and charts should be least 25 X 30 cm (approximately 8.5 x 11 inches) or larger.
  • It is a good idea to sequentially number your materials in the poster. This will indicate to the viewer a logical progression through your poster.
  • Provide an introduction (outline) and a summary or conclusion for your poster.
  • Prepare your poster carefully so that it can be used as the basis to explain and answer questions from the viewers.
  • It is helpful to have copies of your proceedings paper available for those who may want to study specifics of your work in more detail.
