Poster Sessions are a fun and informal way to engage an audience using a method that requires presenters to really think about how they present their idea or project.
As the posters are primarily a visual tool, you will need to think carefully about the images, words and the balance of the two, that will attract someone's attention from two metres away. The clearer the layout the better your audience's understanding of your key messages.
All posters will need to be displayed prior to the main session starting at 12pm with the welcome buffet lunch on Tuesday 26 February and will remain up until the close at 15.30pm on Wednesday 27 February.
The theme may be depicted using photographs, graphics and text compiled into one poster rather than separate sheets stuck onto a backdrop sheet or the display board itself. The poster needs to printed onto A0 841(W)mm x 1189(H)mm size paper. All content needs to be in English.
The organisers will provide a board, velcro, pins to stick your poster up.
Think of your poster in the way you would a PowerPoint slide, with clear headlines, perhaps a few bulleted lists that summarise your key messages. Keep text information to minimum. Use the STAR method to create concise messages.
