Instructions for creating your electronic poster:
 
When creating your PowerPoint electronic poster, the preferred Font is Verdana at a 16/20 point font size MINIMUM. You could also include Tahoma, Helvetica, or Trebuchet MS fonts all at a 16 point MINIMUM font size. We recommend you submit the poster as a PowerPoint file rather than a PDF or jpg. Your poster presentation should not exceed more than 5 slides. This way if there are glaring mistakes with the formatting we can attempt to correct them. The posters need to be 4:3 ratio formats. Please follow instructions carefully. These instructions are to make the Power Point presentations ready for presentation. There will be NO audio on these presentations.
 
Your E-Poster file (full version) must be sent to organising committee  (email address) at least 15 days before the event date to assure availability at the computer stations at the meeting. Once the deadline has passed it will not be possible to submit your electronic poster. If you have questions, concerns or if you are unable to provide the file in the format requested please let us know as soon as possible. PLEASE do not change the size of the e-poster template, as it is sized and designed to fit the presentations screens.
 
SUBMISSION
 
The aim of the electronic poster is to display your work in a concise form, enabling conference attendees to grasp the essentials of the subject in a reasonable time frame.
 
Brevity and clarity are the essence of a good electronic poster. Relevant images can be added to illustrate where appropriate; please ensure that any graphics used are of a good standard.
 
High quality images or illustrations are valuable methods for conveying information. It is important to ensure correct placement of the images relative to the text to enable smooth reading of the poster.
