Poster Instructions

The workshop will include a posters. Posters will be displayed in the workshop room all day. Poster presenters will be available for questions/discussion about their poster during breaks and/or lunch

Poster setup
Posters will be displayed on the wall of the workshop location. Presenters should hang their posters first thing in the morning, beginning at 8am, and tear them down at the end of the event. Sticky tape and push pins will be provided to hang the posters. There is no need to bring a hard-back poster; an ordinary roll-up one will be easier to hang. A member of the workshop organizing committee will be on hand to help you position your poster and resolve any issues you may have. Please note: If you forsee there being any issues with your poster or demonstration we will be better able to address them if you warn us in plenty of time before the workshop.

Poster dimensions
The recommended size for the poster is 24" x 36" (i.e., 2 foot wide by 3 foot high). Please use portrait orientation as space to hang posters at the workshop site will be limited. Please emphasize graphics where and keep text to a minimum.

You may also wish to give a demo to complement your poster using your own laptop. If you plan to do so, note that wired network access will not be available at the workshop. However, there will be wireless access and instructions for using the wireless network will be provided to all workshop attendees. Please do not depend too much on high bandwidth from this network; system demonstrations that do not require network access are preferred.
