Information for poster presenters
What size should posters be?
Maximum recommended poster dimensions: 954 x 1,388 mm (portrait).
I submitted the abstract but can’t attend – can someone else present the poster?
Each submitted abstract must be accompanied by at least one co-author who presents the corresponding poster at the meeting. If a co-author will be presenting in your place, and has not registered yet, please ask them to do so as soon as possible, to ensure that we can include the abstract in the conference abstract ebook.
When should I hang my poster?
Posters can only be displayed after 08:30 on the day of your poster session. The day "code" in front of your poster number indicates which session you are in (i.e. SUN – Sunday, MON – Monday, TUE – Tuesday or WED - Wednesday). Posters should be displayed both for the entire duration of the poster session and during the lunch break.
