It is not compulsory to use the whole of the poster board but a minimum poster size of A1 portrait (59cm wide x 84cm high) is recommended.

Remember, if the poster fills the whole of the poster board, delegates may find it difficult to read what is at the bottom of the poster.

Any posters that overlap an adjoining board will be removed.

Poster Number (P Number):

All poster presenters will receive a poster number e.g. p044. This will be used on-site for the poster board number. This poster number will also be referenced in the Final Programme, where the title of the abstracts and the authors’ details will be mentioned.

The abstracts will be available on the congress website.
