Virtual attendees to:

Guide for Preparation of Posters
Posters should be self-explanatory, so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points raised by viewers. 

Simplicity is the key:

  • brief captions
  • tables that are few in number but clear
  • succinct text, with large font
  • clear, legible figures

Physical Poster Guidelines (In person attendees only)
Posters will be on display from 1030hrs Monday to 1530hrs Wednesday. You are requested to hang your poster by 0830hrs on Monday 11th October.  There is one dedicated Poster Session scheduled from 1200 - 1300hrs on Tuesday 12th October. Presenters are expected to be by their poster during this session and also during the lunch breaks on both Monday and Wednesday if possible. 

At completion of the poster presentations all authors are responsible for removing their posters from the poster hall. Please do not remove your poster until 1530hrs on Wednesday. All posters must be removed by 1730hrs Wednesday, all uncollected posters will be destroyed.

The poster should be self-explanatory, so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points raised by viewers.  Remember that your material/illustrations will be viewed from distances of one metre or more.  Lettering should be as large as possible and preferably in bold type.
