Posters will be on display for the duration of the conference.
Please ensure your poster is placed on the numbered board corresponding with your final reference number by 8.00am on Thursday 7 November and left in place until 2.00pm on Friday 8 November 2013. Posters left uncollected at the conclusion of the conference will be discarded. Final reference numbers will be advised prior to the conference.
How should posters be constructed?
Total poster size should not exceed 841 millimetres wide x 1189 millimetres high (AO size). POSTERS LARGER THAN THIS SIZE CANNOT BE ACCOMMODATED.
Posters should be prepared in portrait format and on a single page.
Velcro adhesive will be available at the conference registration desk to fix your poster to the numbered poster board. On arrival, please make your way to the Registration Desk located on Foyer on Level 1 of the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, where staff will assist with your registration and direct you to the poster presentation set-up area. Posters can be displayed from 7am on Thursday 7 November.
What should a poster contain?
The poster should have a title banner that includes the title, names and affiliations of authors.
You do not need to include your abstract on the poster. Visually appealing materials (photographs, maps, graphs, etc.) will make the poster more attractive, and they should be included to complement the text of your poster.
What fonts and colours should be used on the poster?
Use large fonts to make your poster more readable. The following font sizes are recommended:
Title Bar: 42-48 point bold, title of study in all capitals.
Headers: 30-36 point bold (for example, Introduction, or Objectives).
Body Text: at least 20 point (should be able to read from a distance of 2 meters).
Black or dark blue text on white will be easiest to read.
