GUIDELINES FOR POSTER PRESENTATIONS

Poster exhibition will take place during the coffee break and lunch sessions on the Thursday, Friday, and Saturday in the Poster area.

Each submitted abstract accepted for a poster presentation must be accompanied by at least one co-author who presents the corresponding poster at the congress. If a co-author will be presenting in your place, and has not registered yet, please ask them to do so as soon as possible.

Please hang your poster during the mounting allocated time, on Wednesday June 1st. Posters should be displayed for the entire duration of the congress.

Poster dimension and format
The poster must not exceed 130 cm high and 90 cm wide, PORTRAIT ONLY.

The minimum size is 100 cm high and 70 cm wide

Language:
Your poster must be written in ENGLISH.

Poster Contents:

Each poster must contain the following elements:

  1. Title of the selected abstract
  2. Full names of contributing authors, affiliation and conflict of interests

Text, tables and drawings for figures should be large enough to be seen at a distance of 2 metres. Illustrations should be used to convey important points; diagrams, graphs, bar charts, scatter grams, pie charts and photographs will enhance your presentation.

Make short statements, avoid long explanatory sentences.

Materials
In order to fit the poster board, your poster should not exceed 130 cm high and 90 cm wide (Portrait). Prepare your material beforehand so that it will fit neatly into the space available and can be easily attached to the board. Suitable fixing materials will be provided by the Congress organisers. There will be a poster helpdesk close to the poster area, where staff will be happy to assist you.

Thin cardboard is more suitable than paper. Use a computer, or enlarge a typed text by photographic methods. If you can have your poster produced by your institution, the finished effect is more professional.

The posters need to be rigid enough to be durable so a laminated poster on paper or stiff poster board should be used
