For Poster Presenters

All poster authors have been emailed information about their poster and their poster IDs. If you have not received this email, please contact Please note that the poster ID 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; size E by American National Standards Institute) in a portrait orientation.

Posters with the wrong orientation (i.e., 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.
