WHEN ONSITE AT THE SYMPOSIUM

Please bring with you: A USB stick with a copy of your presentation and a copy of all video and audio files saved separately so they can be re-linked if required.

On first arrival: Come and say "hi" at the registration desk located on Level One in the Pyrmont Theatre Foyer at the International Convention Centre (ICC) Sydney to collect your name tag, program and satchel bag. We will let you know where you are presenting and introduce you to the AV contact who will make sure your presentation has been loaded correctly.

When presenting: Go to your presentation room in the catering break before your session to meet the session facilitator and familiarise yourself with the AV equipment.


POSTER PRESENTER INFORMATION

SIZE: Posters should be directly printed onto an ‘A0’ PORTRAIT SHEET - 841mm wide x 1189mm high. Posters larger than this will exceed the display board size. (Note: consider preparing the poster initially in an A4 format and then get a commercial copy centre to copy and resize to an A0 size)

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Poster Presentations MUST be created in PORTRAIT format, ensuring they fit to the Poster Boards provided.




TITLE: Main poster title should be in 48pt.

OTHER TEXT: Text in the body of the poster should be 22-26pt.

CONTENT: Use these tips to help develop a great poster. The poster should:

  • Be a visual representation of your submitted abstract
  • Be self-explanatory in the event you are not there to explain the content
  • Include an introduction, body and a list of conclusions
  • Make the flow of information explicit and easy for the eye to follow eg. organise the poster in columns running down the poster rather than in rows
  • Use numbering and bulleting to highlight important points
  • Use short sentences
  • Not be loaded with large amounts of data, methodology or reference lists
  • Have short titles for each illustration

HANDOUTS: We recommend that authors prepare articles or handouts to give to interested delegates. Alternatively have a sheet for people to submit their names and email address to send them a copy when they return home. You may also wish to provide your contact details, so those interested can follow up any queries they have at a later date.

DISPLAYING POSTERS: Posters will be displayed for the duration of the Symposium. When registering at the registration desk you will be given a number for your poster. Please locate the corresponding number on the poster boards and affix your poster to it. Please bring your own double sided Velcro to attach posters to the poster board. Should you require assistance please see a staff member at the Symposium registration desk.

POSTER REMOVAL: All posters must be taken down by 5.00pm on Tuesday 30 April 2019.
