A dedicated poster session has been programmed for the morning tea break on Wednesday morning. We ask each presenter to stand besides the poster for the duration of the session.

Please include on your poster all contact details including name(s), organisation name, job title and email address(es). Bringing some extra business cards to leave at your poster is also a good idea.

Poster Installation

Poster boards will available from 7:30am, Wednesday 16 October in the Conference Foyer. Presenters are able to mount their presentations from this time. All posters must be in place by 9am.

Posters can be removed at the end of afternoon tea on Thursday 17 October. Your poster must be removed by 5pm otherwise it will be discarded.

General guidelines

  • Posters must be no greater than A0 (841mm wide x 1189 mm high) 
  • The overall poster board size is 1.8 (h) x 1.2 (w). One poster will be displayed on each side of the board. Feel free to use all the space how you see fit.
  • The panels provided as back drops will be velcro compatible. The organisers can provide the necessary velcro fixers.
  • Poster Presenters will need to print their poster presentation and bring it with them to the conference.

Suggestions for effective poster presentations

  •  An overall left to right presentation (rows), rather than a top-to-bottom (columns), facilitates smooth traffic flow past your poster.
  • All printing should be presented in at least 16 point font, preferably in bold and not all capitals.
  • The poster should be self-explanatory, so that you are free to answer questions and discuss the research with interested persons.
