Poster Presentation Guidelines

Poster Session Regulation

All accepted abstracts will be presented as a poster at the congress and highly-rated abstracts will also be orally presented in themed sessions. It started out last year at the 7th World Congress in Edinburgh, carving out a very comprehensive poster session where participants were given one more chance to take a close look at posters in addition to hearing their authors making an oral presentation.
Poster sessions will be a valuable opportunity for authors to present their studies and meet with participants interested in delving into what the presenters deal with.

- Each poster will be allocated a poster board that corresponds to the poster number.
- Either a presenting author or a co-author should be available to present a poster and discuss it in front of their poster
  during the session.
- Posters should be mounted and removed by the presenters themselves in time.

Poster Layout

Poster Size: 841 mm width x 1189 mm height (A0 Size)

- The poster title, author(s)'s name(s) and affiliation(s)

  should appear on the top. The content should be clear and
  understandable without oral explanation.

- Make sure that the content of your poster matches the
  information you included in your abstract. It is what your
  audience expects.

- Posters should be readable to viewers from 1 m away.
  Lettering used on posters need to be large enough to be visible.

- For legibility, a minimum font size of 28 points and a
  maximum of 600 words
are strongly recommended.

- Clearly labeled schemes, formulae, graphs, diagrams and
convey the meaning more readily than a closely-
  printed text.

- Use appropriate and compatible colors for fonts,
  backgrounds and graphics, and put appropriate blank space
  between words, sections, and figures. White backgrounds
  generally are best for text.

- Posters should be made of paper or cardboard. Heavy board
  materials may be difficult to get positioned on the poster board.

- The secretariat will provide the presenters with Velcro to affix
  their poster on site.
