Guidelines for Poster presentations
10 minutes (up to 5 min presentation, 5 min discussion)
Posters allow participants with similar interests to interact by using the poster as a discussion point. The conference organisers regard posters as an equally important alternative to oral presentations. Posters will be available for viewing in the poster and exhibition room for the duration of the conference. Interactive poster review sessions will be specified in the conference program. In these sessions, a specialist discussant will introduce and review several posters organised around a theme, and then chair a general discussion allowing each poster presenter up to five minutes to offer comments or argument before discussion.
Proposals will be required in the form of an abstract of no more than 500 words outlining the context and outcome for the poster. Proposals for poster presentations will be evaluated on:
- the relevance of the topic to the conference theme
- the relevance of the paper for the conference audience
- the soundness of the research methods and critical analysis
- originality and contribution to scholarship
- clear and coherent presentation of the argument.
- AO Portrait in size 841 mm wide (left to right x 1189 mm high (top to bottom).
- The poster should be oriented in the "portrait" position.
- A banner displaying your poster title, name, institution and email address should be positioned at top-centre of the poster.
- Please make it obvious to the viewer how to progressively view the poster. The poster generally should read from left to right, and top to bottom. Numbering the individual panels, or connecting them with arrows may assist readers.
