Poster Presentations

Please follow the poster printing instructions:

  • Each poster must be printed in A0 portrait format (at the cost of the author).
  • Maximum acceptable poster dimensions: 1189 mm high × 841 mm wide
  • Any poster printed in landscape or larger than the provided board for display may not be displayed at the symposium.
  • Posters printed on canvas or heavy material are not recommended. The materials often prove too heavy to attach to poster boards.
  • Pins cannot be used on the provided poster boards. Only Velcro strips are permitted.
  • Removal and collection of posters at the end of the display period remains the responsibility of the presenter. Posters not removed by the indicated take down time will be removed and disposed of
