We ask that you follow the below guidelines:
  • Each poster must be in PORTRAIT format, printed and should not be bigger than AO (0.841 m width x 1.189 m height/tall).
  • The posters will be mounted on boards and Velcro adhesive will be provided.
  • Any poster printed in landscape or larger than AO may not be displayed at the conference.
  • We recommend that posters are printed on paper, as cloth does not sufficiently attach to the boards.
