Instructions regarding Poster Presentation

Preparation of posters 

The space available for each poster would be of 90cm width and 110cm height. Each poster would be allotted a number, which would be mounted on the top of the board by the organizers. The poster should indicate its Title, Authors and their Affiliations, followed by the Introduction, Results, Conclusions and Acknowledgements (if any). 

The authors are expected to be present near their posters during the poster session. The poster schedule will be announced in advance and this would be based on subject areas. No request for change of session for a poster shall be entertained as these are assigned based on subject areas and juries are different for different subject areas.

Paper presentation guidelines

You will probably wish to prepare some PowerPoint slides to support your presentation. Prepare your slides as a PowerPoint file or a PDF and bring them with you to the conference. You will need to load your presentation onto the computer before your stream, to facilitate a smooth transition between speakers.

We recommend that you also bring your presentation on a data stick or other portable memory device.

You will not generally be able to plug your own laptop into the conference projection system.
