A poster is a visual medium used to communicate a key idea related to research: It presents that idea in verbal and graphic ways. Unlike an oral presentation, a poster does (most) of the talking—it should stand on its own, be self-explanatory (even as it enables conversations with viewers).

Posters should be A0 size (A0 size is 841mm x 1189mm) in portrait orientation.  Click here for hints on preparing your poster.  Posters will be displayed in the catering and exhibition area for the duration of the conference.
