Location of poster boards

Posters will be housed in Hall 3 of the Forum Venue and will be open to all delegates attending the Forum on Wednesday 15th November - Thursday 16th November.

Set-up: Tuesday 14th November between 12:00hrs and 17:00hrs.

Take down: Friday 17th November before 12:00hrs.

Presenting authors will be allotted a number for their poster display. Each poster board will be clearly marked with poster number to be displayed. An exhibition staff will be onsite to assist with any queries. The author/s must be available to present details and answer questions at the time scheduled for poster sessions.


The required poster size is A0 portrait (841 mm wide by 1189 mm high or 33 inches wide by 46 inches high). Posters will be attached to poster boards with Velcro pads (provided by the Forum organisers). Since velcro will be used for attaching the poster, presenters are requested to use standard paper (not extra strong/heavy paper or cloth).
