Poster Presentations

Guidelines for poster presentations

Poster presentations are organised in poster sessions. Each session will be scheduled on a specific day at a specific time. Each session has a display day (the actual date of display) as well as the an ‘authors in attendance time’ when the author(s) will be available to discuss their work. Your allocated diplay day and the attendance time are available on the conference programme: 

Poster boards

Poster boards are in portrait format, and authors can make use of the full dimensions of 90 cm width × 180 cm height. Portrait A0 size posters will fit this space well, but a poster can of any size within those dimensions. All the material necessary for attaching the poster to the poster board will be available in the posters area.

Display time

The general display time is over the full day. Authors are kindly asked to put up their posters in the morning of the day of their poster session (not in the evening before the scheduled display day) in order to enable the conference participants to view their posters at any time on the display period. Authors are then asked to take down their posters before 18:30 that day. After this time, the remaining posters will be disposed of by the conference staff and they will not be stored.

Authors in attendance time

The authors in attendance time is the time when the respective authors of a poster session must be present at their display for presentation. The authors in attendance time of each poster session will be given in the programme. There will be morning and afternoon authors in attendance sessions on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. During this time authors of poster papers should be prepared to engage with conference participants.

Poster preparation

Place the title of your paper clearly on the poster to allow viewers to easily identify your presentation. Show the authors’ names and address information in order to allow interested viewers to contact you for more information. It is recommended that any diagrams or charts be in a size that can be read from at least 1.5 metres away.

The poster must cover the same material as the abstract that was reviewed.

Poster no-shows

Inclusion of your abstract in the conference programme obliges you or one of your co-authors to present your contribution at the time specified.
