    • Posters

      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 between 08:00 and the start of the first session of the day (9:50 on Thursday, and 09:00 on Friday). Posters should only be removed at the end of the day and before 08:00 of the following day (or by 16:00 on Friday, 16 June).
