For Poster Presenters

All poster authors have been emailed information about their poster, including the poster number, which poster session their poster will be in and the poster presentation times. If you have not received this email please contact

Please note: the poster number is different to the submission ID assigned to your abstract during the submission process.

Poster dimensions

Posters should be paper size A0 (841 x 1189mm) in a portrait orientation.

Posters that have the wrong orientation (ie landscape), or which exceed the specified dimensions, will be removed as they will obscure other posters.

  • Guidance on making poster presentations is available from the ‘Attending Professional Meetings’ resource on the website of Hess, GR, Tosney K, and Liegel L 2006. Creating Effective Poster Presentations.

When and where is my poster session?
