    • Posters

      The two poster sessions are scheduled for Thursday, 16 June, at 13:45 and Friday, 17 June, at 13:15.

      If your abstract is selected for a poster presentation, when preparing your poster please remember that the area available to you is 90 x 110 cm (width x height).

      "Portrait" is fine poster should be PORTRAIT    poster should NOT be LANDSCAPE "Landscape" not...

      Your poster should be readable from a 2-metre distance; as a rough guideline, use a font size of 72 pts for your title, and a minimum of 28 pts for your text.

      Posters must be mounted on the day of the presentation only, between 08:00 and the start of the first session of the day (09:50 on Thursday, and 09:00 on Friday).

      Posters must be removed at the end of the day only: 18:45 on Thursday and within 16:30 on Friday. Posters from the Thursday session that are still up by Friday at 08:00 will be discarded by the venue personnel so that the Friday posters can be set up.
