Please read the following poster presentation guidelines carefully and prepare your poster accordingly.

Poster Size and Mounting
The poster size is 0.9m width x 1.2m height in portrait orientation. Please refer to the below Technical Specifications and Poster Template to prepare your poster. Your abstract number should be displayed at the top left-hand corner of your poster.  Please make the font easily readable from the viewing distance – point 24 or more (for text content) is recommended (larger font is expected for titles, authors and sub-headings). Please include your abstract number, abstract title, authors’ names,affiliations and countries/regions in the poster.

Mounting supplies (cellulose tape, adhesive Velcro and blue-tack) will be available at the poster display area during the set-up period.  Push pins are NOT allowed.  You are also RESTRICTED to use staples or to stick the self-adhesive posters directly on the poster board since it is extremely difficult to be removed.  NO computer or other multimedia facilities will be available at the venue for poster presentation.
