Reviewing of submitted abstracts
All the abstracts submitted will be reviewed by a group of senior researchers and be accepted or rejected. Notification of acceptance will be sent out by August 15, 2022.
If you have any questions regarding abstract submission, please send an email to Ebba Perman.
- The poster size should be of portrait format (width 700 mm and height 1000 mm). Our poster boards cannot accommodate larger posters, or posters in landscape format.
- We kindly ask you NOT to laminate your poster with plastic. Laminated posters tend to curl and are difficult to affix to the boards.
- Your poster title and author information should be positioned at the top-center of the poster. Font size for the title should be at least 70 points, for author information at least 30 points. Use all capital letters for the title.
- Text should be readable from 1.50 meters distance. Use a minimum font size of 24 points.
- Add key references to the paper, but do not exaggerate. References should be formatted according to the guidelines in the paper submission guidelines.
Some notes to consider when designing the poster
Keep in mind that a poster is a graphical approach to presenting research.
- Use text to (a) introduce the study: What hypothesis was tested or what problem was investigated? Why was the study worth doing?, (b) explain visuals and direct viewer attention to relevant data and relationships portrayed in the visuals, and (c) state and explain the interpretations that follow from the data. In many cases, conclusions can be summarized in a bullet-point list.
- Limit the text to one fourth of the poster space, and mainly rely on “visuals” (graphs, photographs, flowcharts, etc.) to tell your “story”.
- Make it obvious to the viewer how to navigate the poster. The poster generally should read from left to right, and top to bottom. Numbering individual panels or connecting them with arrows are possible “guidance systems”.
- Leave some open space in the design. An open layout is less tiring to the eye and mind. Use color to enhance comprehension, not to decorate the poster.
- Visuals should be easy to understand and not contain unnecessary details. To present numerical data in graphical form is preferable but if data must be presented in table form, keep it simple. Make sure that any visual can “stand alone” (i.e., graphs have a brief title, axes are properly labeled, symbols are explained, etc.).
If you have any remaining questions about poster presentations, please contact Ebba Perman.
Posters – mounting and dismounting
The posters should be mounted on Tuesday 4th of October before 10.30 hrs and dismounted on Wednesday 5th of October after 15.30 hrs. Poster boards are numbered. Mount the poster where your corresponding poster number is listed. The posters can be attached to the poster panel with pins (or similar) supplied by the organizers at the poster conference venue.
All posters must be removed in the end of conference day 2 (5th of October). Any posters still hanging after 18.00 hrs, Wednesday 5th of October, will be removed and disposed of by the conference organizers.
