The presentation of posters facilitates one-on-one interaction between the presenter and the
audience. Posters will be on view for the duration of the Poster Sessions (from 17:00 to 19:00
                   th          th
hours) on May 18 or May 19 . The poster set-up will start at 15:30 hours and all material should
be removed by 19:30 hours the same day. Some poster presenters may also be selected to give
oral presentation in the conference – if requested by the Technical Program Chair. Be prepared
with a high-quality presentation package.

All posters will be required to conform to the requirements as follows.

Instructions for Preparing Posters
    1.      The poster board surface allocated to each author measures approximately 36" high
            x 46" wide. Poster Boards are made of a soft material that accepts Velcro tape. A
            supply of Velcro tape will be available in the poster area for mounting your poster.
    2.      Poster material must be prepared in advance and should be large enough to be
            viewed from a distance of one meter (approx. 3 feet). Each poster must have a label
            at the top that indicates the title of the paper, the name(s) of the author(s) and their
            affiliation(s). The size of the characters for the title should be at least 2.5 cm high
            (approx. 1 inch).
    3.      Drawings and charts should be clear and simple.
    4.      Authors are required to mount their material starting at 15:30 hours on the day of
            their presentation. The material should be removed by 19:30 hours the same day.
    5.      Authors are expected to be at their poster during the assigned time periods.
 A suggested arrangement for posters is illustrated below.

 NOTE: Poster presenters can format their Poster using PowerPoint slides (18 max) in order
 to easily present their Poster in an Oral forum, should they be called upon to do so by the
 Chair. Authors who are not formatting their Poster using PowerPoint slides and who wish to
 be considered as a substitute for an Oral Presentation are requested to provide both a Poster
 and a PowerPoint presentation package.
