Poster exhibition

The poster exhibition will be situated in the hall below the Vestibule at the conference venue, Georg Sverdrups House. Information regarding set-up and dismantling times will be sent to the authors along with their notification.

Guidelines for a Poster format

Text should include the title, a summary, an introduction with objectives, material and methods, results, conclusions and future plans:

  • Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract.
  • A summary stating what was done, how you have done it, the key findings and the main results.
  • The main body of the poster normally includes Introduction and Objectives (statements about the problem to solve, the characteristics to discover or the proofs to establish, ending in a description of project aims and objectives), Material and Methodology (explains the basis of the theory and technique which is used or the procedure adopted), Results (the main results of the work illustrated) and Conclusions and future plans (the main findings of the investigation with recommendations and thoughts about how the work could be progressed).

The dimensions of the poster board are 90 cm wide x 120 cm high, the size of the poster must be limited to the dimensions of the poster board. We suggest that you print your poster with standard ISO A0 size paper (841mm in width and 1189mm in height (33.11 inches x 46.82 inches).

  • Results should be presented as graphs or charts. Provide a key to explain symbols or other details. You may also want to provide an interpretation of the results below each panel.
  • The text and illustrations should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters (six feet).

The printed Poster hardcopy should be taken to the conference, and will be placed in the poster area by the author in the designated position according to the “registration Number”. Tacks and technical equipment will be available for the hanging of posters. Authors who are presenting the poster are required to stand by their poster during poster session.

NB, for an oral presentation of a poster the time limit is set to 5 minutes.

Please remove your poster after the assigned date and time. The Local Organizing Committee will not be responsible for posters that are not removed on time.
