Guidelines for Posters
The maximum space available for each poster is 120 x 90 cm (height x width). Make your poster easy to identify, preferably by title, author(s) and the author affiliation(s) in the heading. Use clear and precise language. Avoid lengthy formulations and superfluous wording. Keep the text to a minimum and make a good use of illustrative figures. Use good resolution pictures and figures. Use contrasting colors. Avoid light color on light background and dark color on dark background. Do not use dark shadows with dark text.
Each poster will be introduced in an oral session, with a three-minute presentation. Due to the large number of posters to be presented, authors will be strictly limited to 3 minutes.
Authors should prepare a maximum of 3 OVERHEAD (acetate) slides for this oral presentation. Do NOT include a title slide. This will be provided by the organisers. (PowerPoint presentations are NOT possible due to time constraints). A slide with the poster title and authors will be displayed on a second screen so don't waste one of your three slides displaying this information!.
The oral presentation should focus on introducing the poster content and should not attempt to present detailed results, which are included in the poster and can be discussed in the poster session. At the end of the workshop, the best 3 posters will be awarded a 'Best Poster Award'.
