Poster Guidelines.

Size

Please keep a maximum poster size (A0 format) – 85cm (width) x 120cm (height).

Poster Attachment

Posters must be hung using VELCRO TAPE ONLY that you may wish to bring with you.  Pins are not allowed!  Volunteers will also be happy to assist and provide the velcro tape too.

Putting up and taking down posters: Posters can be hung on Sunday while the registration desk is open and on Thursday 9th of January in the morning. Posters must be taken down after the lunch break on Friday 10th of January.

Poster Sessions

During the poster session, please make sure you stand close to your poster so that participants can discuss your work with you.

Authors need to be present at their posters for discussion with attendees during the session. Subsequently, it is each author’s responsibility to remove his/her poster immediately at the end of the session. MSI assumes no responsibility for posters left up after this time.

Whilst one of the advantages of a poster is that it allows you to include considerably more data and more complex tables than in an oral presentation, remember not to over do it – in particular, graphs and figures are more effective ways of conveying information than either tables or large chunks of text.

Photographs are an excellent way of drawing attention to your poster but don’t let your artistic tendencies get carried away at the expense of your scientific message.

Avoid use of copyrighted images unless you are the copyright holder or have permission to use them.
