Poster Presentation

Posters should be limited to fit within A0 size, in portrait (84cm x 119cm) or landscape (119cm x 84 cm). Authors may choose to bring a single poster or display a number of smaller sheets in this space.

Posters will be displayed in the morning and afternoon tea area, so it is envisaged that delegates will be able to look at the posters during breaks, as well as during official poster sessions. Presenters are therefore asked to make their poster as self explanatory as possible - as well as attractive.

Presenters for the wednesday poster session are asked to set up before 10:30 wednesday, and remove their posters directly after their session.
Presenters for the Thursday session are asked to set up their posters between 17:30 Wednesday, and 10:30 Thursday, and remove their posters directly after their session.
Presenters for the Friday (morning) session are asked to set up their posters between 17:30 Thursday and 9am Friday, removing them by the end of the conference.

Presenters are expected to be available beside their poster during their scheduled 2 hour session, in order to take questions and discuss their work with delegates.
