Size: Posters should be available in A0 size, portrait version (118.9 x 84.1cm).

Layout: The poster should be easily readable from a distance of about 2 metres. A carefully considered layout attracts interest, and helps the reader to understand the author’s findings and their significance. Do not crowd your poster.

Heading:  The character size for the poster title shall be at least 25 mm, and for the authors’ names and affiliations at least 15 mm. Mixed upper and lower case is recommended to facilitate readability. The presenting author should be mentioned first.

Figures & Tables: All figures and tables shall be clearly legible from at least 2m, and each figure should have a short, self-explanatory legend. Character size in Figure Legends and Tables should be at least 7 mm. Clarity is much enhanced by careful design and labelling of the figures, and can be further improved by clear colour-coding.

Handouts: To give additional details of your work, you may wish to bring handouts for interested viewers to pick up.

Printing:  All delegates will be responsible for the printing and carriage of their poster to the venue.  There will be no provision to print posters on-site.

Poster registration at the conference: Each poster will be allocated a unique poster number (which will be distinct from the original abstract number). More information will be given to you on site at the registration desk.
