  • Please note that the preferred screen ratio for PowerPoint presentations is 16:9
  • There will be Audio-visual Technicians on hand to assist with loading your presentation.

  • A computer to which your presentation will be uploaded

Posters Presentation Guidelines

Posters should be no larger than portrait A0 (841 mm x 1189 mm). All posters must be in English.

Your poster should include a title banner, listing the presentation title, and the authors’ names and their organisation(s) including a headshot so delegates may identify you. Text in the poster should be brief and clear and concise. The poster should be understandable without oral explanation.

Handouts of your poster presentation are permissible.

To ensure your poster has maximum impact, please consider the following formatting suggestions:

  • poster titles should be a minimum size of 45 pt
  • headings should be a minimum size of 30 pt
  • text should be a minimum size of 20 pt (readable from a distance of 2 metres)
  • avoid making the text all capitals as this makes it harder for the audience to read
  • avoid using a mixture of font styles
  • a matt finish on photographs reduces glare and provides better visibility
  • results should be displayed graphically, if possible, through the use of pictures, symbols and colour
  • figure legends are essential; however, these should be clear and concise


Can I attend sessions?

Yes, you have access to all sessions.

Can I attend Social Functions?

Yes, please note these are included in a full registration fee. An RSVP to these social functions is required via the registration form. Additional tickets can be purchased for guests.

How do I present my presentation?

Your presentation should be saved as a Microsoft Office PowerPoint file. 2010 or newer versions are preferred, however 97-2003 versions will also be accepted.

The slide ratio for your presentation should also be set to 16:9

Do I need to send a copy of my presentation prior to the Congress?

No, please take a copy of the presentation on USB to the Congress and visit your presentation room 15 minutes prior to your talk. The technicians available will then load your presentation accordingly. If you are speaking first up in the morning, you can load your presentation in the presentation room when you arrive onsite for the day.
