Poster Presentation Instructions

Posters will be placed on vertical poster boards and should be no larger than 2.5 m (8’) high X 94 cm (3’) wide.  Posters will adhere to the boards using tape and/or double-back tape.  (Tape will be provided.)

Poster numbers are provided in the program and numbers will be placed on each stand designating your placement. Posters will be grouped by session and, where possible, close to corresponding oral session room. Posters will be displayed in various areas throughout the meeting.

Set up for posters is scheduled Monday from 1200-1700. Poster sessions will be held Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday from 1800-2000 in three different areas (Rhodes, Muse and Méditerranée) Each poster presenter will be given the day of their poster session. You should be sure to be at your poster on that day to provide information about your poster to attendees. Refreshments and a cash bar will be provided in all three locations during each of the poster sessions.

Poster presenters are asked to abide by the designated set-up (Monday, 1200 – 1700) and tear-down (Thursday, 2000 – 2200 and Friday, 0800 – 1200) instructions and times. The conference decorator may discard any posters if the presenting author does not dismantle them according to the tear-down instructions and time provided.

As a scientific association, it is ASLO’s policy not to allow photographing and/or recording of materials presented at its conferences and meetings. Authors may make handouts of their posters for those who are interested.
