All authors whose abstracts are accepted are required to register for the conference and pay the appropriate registration fee, to confirm that they intend to attend the conference. Authors who submit abstracts and have these accepted for presentation will need to cover their own travel and accommodation costs (subject to student support). Registration deadline is midnight (AWST) 28 February 2017.
Oral presentations of submitted abstracts will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions, 20 minutes total. All speakers must submit a PowerPoint of their talk to the speaker ready room by the afternoon of the day before their session, preferably on a USB flash drive (memory stick). We will provide instructions for uploading to all authors of accepted talks.
Lecture room will be equipped with a computer for presentation of PowerPoint slides, a projector, lectern, laser pointer, and microphone plus speakers. There will be no other audiovisual aids.
Each presenter will have the opportunity to promote their poster with a three minute oral presentation of their poster during the morning tea break. Here you will be able to give the audience a reason to come and see you, and hopefully capture more interest in your work.
Maximum poster size is AO portrait i.e. 841mm wide [left to right] x 1189mm high [top to bottom]. Please ensure your poster does not exceed these dimensions. Posters will be displayed at a designated site in the University Club. Instructions will be provided by staff at the registration desk.
Preparing your poster
Posters can be an excellent method to communicate your research, so emphasis should be given to the visual impact and format to capture your audience. With this in mind, please do not attempt to detail your entire project or its history and present only enough data to support conclusions and explain the points you wish to make. Diagrams and photographs are a much more effective way of presenting data than text.
Ensure your poster has a title.
Posters can be an excellent method to communicate your research, so text lettering should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5 metres. Lettering used for titles should be at least 24point size minimum (simple fonts like Times New Roman or Arial are good fonts to use). Fonts that replicate script lettering or handwriting are not recommended. All text must be in English. Photographs and diagrams should be large enough to be read at a distance of 1.5 metres.
Contact details should be included on the poster.
Hanging and removing your poster
Your poster can be hung using hooked (male) Velcro. This will be supplied at the registration desk.
Posters can be erected during the welcome reception from 6pm on Tuesday April 18. We request that posters are taken down during afternoon tea on Friday April 21.
The organisers accept no responsibility for damage to or loss of posters.
