Abstract SubmissionPoster Presentation Information and Guidelines
Each presenter is provided with a 90 cm wide by 120 cm height laminated poster board and will be arranged in PORTRAIT format. Please prepare your poster to fit this size.
The presentation must cover the same material as the abstract submitted.
Posters should be clear and easy to read. Font size should be sufficiently large to allow people to read from one and half to two meters away.
Avoid overload - too much information seriously detracts from the overall impact. LESS IS BEST!
Posters will be assigned to a poster board number listed in our Conference Program Book (distributed at conference site). Find your assigned poster board to display your poster.
Posters must be displayed prior to the scheduled Poster Session and must be taken away at the end of each group session. Remember that the presenting author is expected to be present at the poster during the session in which the poster is included.
Remember to include the title, the names of the authors and their affiliations at the top of your poster - you might also like to include a small photo of the presenting author to help other delegates identify who they want to talk to!
Do not mail your poster to the conference site as there will not be anyone to accept your presentation at this location.
Discussions should be held in front of your posters.
Poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement and discuss any points of inquiry. The poster session provides a more intimate forum for discussion than an oral presentation. This becomes difficult if you are obliged to devote most of your time explaining your poster to a succession of visitors.
Please check the Scientific Program for your presentation time slot.
Oral Presentation Information
Each contributed oral presentation will be allocated 17 minutes for presentation, with an additional three minutes for questions and session chairs will be instructed to stop any presentations that run-over to allow time for the changeover of speakers. Please ensure that you plan your presentation to fit within this schedule.
The Chair will warn you when you have five minutes (of the 17) remaining, again with two minutes (of the 17) remaining, and will hold up a STOP sign when you reach the end of your allocated 17 minutes!
Please prepare your presentations using either PowerPoint or pdf formats, running under Windows. We recommend that you save your PowerPoint presentation as a PowerPoint Show (.pps) file rather than as a .ppt file, as this format is more transferable between platforms.
Please bring your presentation on a USB flash memory.
Please arrive at the designated lecture room for your session at least 10 minutes prior to the start of the session, to allow time to check that your presentation is correctly uploaded. You should introduce yourself to the session Chair when you arrive, and expect to stay in that room for the whole session, not just for your presentation.
Remember that although all presentations should be given in English, not all delegates have English as their first language, so try not to speak too fast!
When answering any questions at the end of your presentation, remember to speak to the whole audience, not just to the person who asked the question.
