Poster Presentation Provisions

Each presenter will be assigned space on a hard standing panel on which posters will be affixed. Each poster board will host two posters. The recommended poster size is A0 (841mm width x 1,189mm height or 33.1” width × 46.8” height) and the maximum allowable poster size is 42” width and 48” height. A schematic of the hard-standing panel and a sample photo are shown below.

A sign for each panel will be provided by the Congress sponsors and will contain the abstract number. Posters will be attached to panels. Poster printing is the responsibility of the authors. Adhesive tape and/or push pins will be provided by the Congress sponsors at the Poster Service Desk close to the poster area.

Posters must contain authors' names and affiliations, the title of presentation, a brief abstract and materials such as graphs, charts, tables and photographs that are necessary to communicate effectively the research findings to the audience. Materials on posters should not be copies from pages of the typed manuscript and handwritten text is not permitted. Instead, the poster should contain enlarged text and key figures that are easy to read from a distance.
