Display and poster sizes

  • Posters will be displayed on poster boards in the conference foyer. Posters can only be attached with velcro dots (available from Registration Desk). The preferred poster size is ISO A0 size (height: 1189mm x width: 841mm) in portrait format. As posters printed on cloth/material frequently fall off poster boards, it is recommended that posters are printed on paper/card.

Image permissions and acknowledgements

  • It is the responsibility of the poster authors to ensure that permission has been granted for all images used and that the source of any such images are acknowledged.
