GUIDELINES FOR ORAL PRESENTATIONS FOR THE 3rd ICPCN CONFERENCE

All oral presentations will be of 15 minute duration with time for questions and discussion at the end of each 1.5 hour session, which will include other presentations.

We urge you not to exceed the time limit in order to give the other speakers enough time for their talks and to allow for a fruitful discussion.

Please use a short PowerPoint presentation for your talk. There will be a preview room at the conference venue where you can review and deliver the file. This must be done no later than two hours before the start of the session.

Presenters are encouraged to bring electronic backup copies of their presentations. The Organising Committee holds no responsibility for damaged files, unknown formats etc.

CONFIRMATION OF ATTENDANCE AND REGISTRATION TO THE CONGRESS IS MANDATORY.

The presenting author must confirm his/her attendance and register for the congress.

Should you be unable to attend the congress or you are not the presenting author, please advise us immediately by sending an email to the Conference Chair at julia.downing@icpcn.org

GUIDELINES FOR POSTERS FOR THE 3rd ICPCN CONFERENCE

The presenting author must confirm his/her attendance and register for the congress.

Should you be unable to attend the congress or you are not the presenting author, please advise us immediately by sending an email to the Conference Chair at julia.downing@icpcn.org

The poster should be a visual presentation of your submitted abstract and should meet the following criteria:

TITLE
The title should be the same as in the submitted abstract.

POSTER SIZE
The poster must be no less than A1 and no larger than A0 size (A0 size is 841mm x 1189mm). Orientation of your poster must be in portrait style.

TITLE
Include the title of your presentation at the top of the poster. Characters should be a minimum of 48-point font size. Authors names, affiliations and/or institution should also be displayed on the poster.

HEADINGS
48 to 60-point font size is recommended for headings.

LETTERING AND CONTENT
The poster should be easily readable at a distance of two metres. Use upper and lower case for general content as the use of all-capital text is difficult to read. Avoid using a mixture of type/font styles.

24 to 32 font size single spaced is recommended. The text should be concise and easy to read and the message should be clear and understandable without the requirement of oral explanation. If relevant, methods should be presented simply and concisely.

Results should be presented graphically if possible. Avoid large tables of data. Results should be in line with those originally submitted in your abstract.

Use pictures, symbols and colour. Figure legends are essential and should be short but informative. If using graphs, they should have a short heading. For visual effect, we recommend that graphs be no smaller than 12cm x 18cm.

Use the space to attract your audience for discussion, not to present complex details of methods and results. Posters will be on display for one day.  You will be informed of the assigned date and position of your poster via email before the start of the conference.
