Posters and Poster Hour


Poster size: Standard A0 in portrait orientation (Height 1189mm X Width 841mm). Your abstract submission reference number should be clearly displayed in the upper right hand corner of your poster.

A poster board will be allocated to each poster presenter.  Your poster board number and location will be issued to you in advance of the Meeting.  Please note that your poster board number will be different from your submission reference number. Onsite staff will help you to locate your poster board.  Velcro will be provided to attach your poster.  You may place your poster on your poster board from 18.00 on Thursday 27th September 2018.  Posters should be in situ by 10.00am on Friday 28th September and should stay in place for the duration of the Meeting.  Posters must be reclaimed, if desired, by 13.30 on Saturday 29th September.  Any unclaimed posters will be discarded.

The primary author or a co-author is expected to register for the meeting (Early Bird Closes: Friday 17th August). Click here now to register. All correspondence in relation to this abstract submission will continue to go to the primary submitting author.  It is the primary submitting author's responsibility to keep co-authors informed of any information regarding their submission/poster.

Moderated Poster Hour

This year a moderated Poster Hour will take place on Friday September 28th from 4-5pm.  This will offer poster-authors the opportunity to present their work to the judging committee.  Adjudication of all posters will take place during the Poster Hour session.  There is no obligation on an author to present their poster but you are encouraged to do so, both in the spirit of the meeting and to do justice to your hard work. 

Those wishing to present their work must be at their poster board at least 5 minutes before the start of the Poster Hour. Each presenter will have 2 minutes to present their poster and 1 minute for questions and answers. Strict time will be kept in order to ensure flow. Posters will be grouped by the category chosen by the author at the time of submission of the abstract.


Please address any queries regarding the Poster Hour to Elaine O Connor, Hon. Secretary.
