Poster Notification

Once you receive an email about acceptance of abstract, we will invite you to display your work in the form of a research poster. The poster will be mounted at appropriate spots (based on provided abstract number) at the conference venue for both days of the conference. An extended poster viewing session has been planned on the afternoon session of September 21, 2019 . Please carry printed posters with you to the conference. Local level poster printing is possible but not advisable.

Poster Panel Size

The display area for each poster on the panel of the poster board will be 1200m wide x 1600mm high. We would recommend you print your poster AO size in Portrait format (841mm x 1189mm). Please note posters that are landscape or of any other size cannot be displayed on the boards. This area will be allocated for each poster. It is recommended that you leave a margin of at least 3 inches (7.5 cm) around the poster. When preparing your poster and considering how much of your display will be visible at eye-level, please bear in mind that panels will be mounted on stands.

Fixing

Posters will be affixed with pins or Velcro, some will be available at the conference.

Poster Panel Allocation

A numbered panel will be allocated for each poster (separate from the abstract number you have been assigned) and staff will be on hand at the conference to provide your poster panel number.

Set-up and Session Times

Poster presenters should ensure that they stand by their posters during their allocated poster viewing session. The organizers do not take any responsibility for posters not removed at the end of the sessions

Poster Evaluation

An expert jury panel will evaluate the posters during the poster viewing session on September 21, 2019 afternoon. Presenting authors will be requested to be present at their respective posters during this time. Top 3 posters will be felicitated with awards at the valedictory session of the conference on September 22, 2019.

General Guidelines for Poster Production

A poster should be self-contained and self-explanatory, allowing different viewers to proceed on their own while the author is free to supplement or discuss particular points raised in inquiry. Presentations should be kept simple and clear and a mixture of text and graphics is recommended. Remember that the viewer, not the author, as in the case of slide presentations, determines the time spent at each poster.

Display Area

1100mm wide x 1200cm high

Poster Layout

Materials should be mounted on colored poster paper or board. The abstract does not need to be presented. Illustrations Figures should be designed to be viewed from a distance and should use clear, visible graphics and large type. Each figure or table should have a heading of one or two lines. Additional essential information should be provided below in a legend. Photographs should have good contrast, sharp focus and, if necessary, an indication of scale.

Poster Text

Minimise narrative. Use large type in short, separated paragraphs. Numbered or bulleted lists are effective ways to convey a series of points. Do not set entire paragraphs in uppercase or boldface type.

Titles and Fonts

Titles and captions should be short and easy to read, in a sans serif font for preference. Use large lettering as this means several people can read the poster from a distance without overcrowding. Remember to caption your poster with the abstract title, authors names and affiliations.
