Informations for POSTER presenters

Poster Display Dates:

Posters will be on display for the duration of the seminar.

Presenters must be at their posters during the time judges visit the poster site from 3.30 to 5.00 PM on 8th December.


Set Up and Removal Times:

Posters must be set up between 08.30 and 09.30 on 7th December. Materials to affix posters will be provided.

Posters may only be taken down after 5.30 on 8th December.

The scientific committee will not be held responsible for any posters that are left behind.


Poster Board Size:

The maximum available dimensions of the portrait poster board are as follows: 95cm wide x 150cm high.

It is not compulsory to use the whole of the poster board but a minimum poster size of A1 portrait (59cm wide x 84cm high) is recommended.

Remember, if the poster fills the whole of the poster board, delegates may find it difficult to read what is at the bottom of the poster.

Any posters that overlap the board will be removed.


Poster Number (P Number)

All poster presenters will receive a poster number e.g. p03. This will be indicated on-site for the poster board number. This poster number will also be referenced in the seminar publication, where the abstracts and the authors’ details will be published 



Poster Presentation Guidelines

1.  We suggest that posters are designed using the following sections:

§  Title, author and address (at upper edge, across the width of the whole poster)

§  Purpose

§  Methods

§  Results

§  Conclusions

2.  Keep text to a minimum, emphasis graphics, and make sure every item in your poster is necessary.

3.  Posters must correspond directly with the original abstract submitted.

4.  Posters must be written and presented in English.

5.  The use of colour makes the poster more effective and attractive.

6.  When choosing a background, remember that neutral or grey colours are easier to view than a bright colour. In addition, colour photos look best when mounted on grey.

7.  We recommend a font size of at least 28pt to ensure the text is legible from a good distance.

8.  Poster numbers will be indicated in the board.

9. Posters will be affixed with double sided tape or Velcro; these materials will be provided. No tacks will be allowed.

10. Bring your acceptance letter and congress registration badge.
