Moderation and Adjudication

Your moderated poster session will offer you the opportunity to present your work to the judges.  You are not obliged to present your poster. However, we strongly encourage you to avail of this learning opportunity - 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 their poster session (note timing above). You will have 2 minutes to present your poster and 1 minute for questions and answers. Strict time will be kept in order to ensure flow.
