the room will be equiupped with video projection facilities: a laptop that can handle popular PC- and MAC-based formats (Powerpoint etc.).
so we recommend that in case you use video-projection you just plug in your USB stick.
In this case, please please make sure that you put your file on the laptop and try out your presentation beforehand, in a meal or coffee break, so that there is no delay during the session.
if for some reason you prefer using your own laptop, please make sure that you try out your presentation beforehand, in a meal or coffee break.
in any case, i.e. whether video projection is used or not, we encourage you to distribute handouts (that's audience-friendly): about 70 handouts should do (we eventually update this number as registration proceeds and we have more precise figures).
the poster session is on Friday 29th from 11h35 (or earlier starting during the coffe break) to 12h30 (or further into the lunch break)
the poster displays will be set up on the evening before the poster session, i.e. on Thrusday 28th after the last presentation.
you will have a space of about 5' (wide) x 3'9" (high) (152 cm wide x 114 cm high) for your poster. Each person presenting a poster will be provided with the means to affix their posters to the display board.
please feel free to bring handouts with you, so that those viewing your poster also have something to take away.
there is no one single way to produce a good poster: the important things are
that the font size is not too small
that it is easily readable and does not have too much text on it
that it sets out the main points that you want to argue for clearly
and maybe that it's eye catching, too.
some presenters bring one big poster which takes up all the space, others bring a series of A3 or A4 sheets of paper which can be fitted together on the poster board.
during the poster session, you will be asked to stand by your poster (for at least a fair amount of the session) as conference participants walk around the displays, read your posters and ask you questions about them.
