We have divided posters into a number of sub-themes for viewing on one day only of the congress. Poster sessions will occur on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. The specific date and poster ID number will be sent to registered presenters in early July. Poster placement will be indicated by a poster ID number on the poster boards and posters should be in place on the designated day of placement by 7:45 am and taken down immediately after the last session (5 pm).
The presenting author must be at the meeting to present their poster. If the presenting author has changed, please contact the ICoMST congress secretariat so that the information is updated. If a presenter is not registered by June 15, 2012, for the conference, the short paper and poster will be withdrawn and the short paper not published. Posters will be organized and presented by selected topic areas.
Each poster board will be 231 x 114 cm (91 x 45 inches) and will display TWO posters on each side giving each presenter a maximum 115 x 114 cm (45.5 x 45 inches) area. Please design posters to be a maximum of 115 cm tall x 105 cm wide (45 x 42 inch) in a portrait format. Poster boards will be VelcroTM and push pin compatible. There is no guarantee that Velcro will work, so push pins are preferred. Please note that the poster boards will be BraelockTM fabric with a metal frame. If your poster is taller than 115 cm, the ends will overlap the metal strip.
Presenter attendance at your poster
Presenters are encouraged to be in attendance at his/her poster during coffee breaks, but the presenting author must be in attendance at his/her poster during the designated poster sessions. Specified poster sessions (with presenters in attendance) are: Monday, August 13, 3 to 3:30 pm; Tuesday, August 14, 3 to 3:30 pm; and Thursday, August 16, 3 to 3:30 pm.
Abstracts should not be included on the posters as a summary of the poster has already been included in the ICoMST proceedings. Posters should include the following sections:
• Materials and Methods
These sections should proceed logically and should be indicated clearly with a heading. Flow charts, graphs and tables should be titled with axes named and units of measure specified. The title of the poster should be located at the top of the poster with authors and affiliations (same as short paper) included below the title. Lettering for the title section should be no less than 2.5 cm high. Posters should be concise and text of sufficient font size so that it can be read from a distance of approximately 1.5 m (5 feet).
As a tip, if the copy of your poster when reduced to A4 or US letter size cannot be easily read, then you may have too many words on your poster and your original font sizes are too small.
