Preparation of Posters
- Please prepare your poster on one sheet of Bristol board or laminated paper.
Alternatively presenters may display their material on several smaller sheets.
- The dimensions of the poster board are: 1m wide x 2.30m long (39.5 x 90.5 inches). It is suggested that your poster be 90 cm wide x 1.2m long (35.5 inches wide x 47 inches long). Any longer, and it becomes difficult to see.
- Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract.
- The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters (six feet).
- Double sided tape and technical equipment will be available for the mounting of posters. Staff will also be in the poster area to assist you.
- Please refer to the Final Programme book that you will receive upon arrival at the Conference for the poster board number assigned to you. Please use the board with the same number.
Should you wish, A4 envelopes are available to place reprints of your poster or relevant material. These are available upon request from on-site staff.
Posters will be on display on two days: Thursday, 23 June & Friday, 24 June with a daily rotation. Your poster should be displayed as per the date and the number in the programme.
The Organising Committee will not be responsible for posters that are not removed on time.
Poster presenters are requested to be present at their designated poster board(s) to answer questions during breaks.
Instructions for Oral Presentations
All Invited, Sponsored and Free Communications speakers are requested to submit their presentations to the Speakers’ Ready Room at least 1 hour before the start of your session.
The Speakers’ Ready Room will be clearly sign posted at the Symposium.
If using a PowerPoint (or any other computer) presentation, please note you need to bring it on a CD, a DVD or on a “disk on key” Memory stick ( using the USB port in the computer) and load it on one of the congress’ computers in the Speakers’ Ready Room, at least 1 hour before the start of the session.
You may supply your own laptop computer as a back-up.
If combining video films with PowerPoint, please make sure to check it in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during a coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session - even after checking it in the Speakers’ Ready Room.
Please note that the congress’ computers in the session halls are being supplied with Windows XP and Office 2007.
Important note for Macintosh users
In order to use MAC presentations on a PC compatible computer please note that you need to prepare it according to the instructions below, before bringing it to the Speakers' Ready Room:
1. Use a common font, such as Arial, Times New Roman, Verdana etc. (special fonts might be changed to a default font on a PowerPoint based PC).
2. Insert pictures as JPG files (and not TIF, PNG or PICT - these images will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC ).
3. Use a common movie format, such as AVI, MPG and WMV (MOV files from QuickTime will not be visible on a PowerPoint based PC).
You may use your own Macintosh laptop computer as a back-up. In such a case please confirm that it has a VGA socket for external signal and come to check it first in the Speakers’ Ready Room as soon as you arrive and later on in the session hall where your lecture is taking place during the coffee or lunch break prior to your session, at least 30 minutes before the start of the session.
Please note that VHS Video projection, 35 mm’ slide projection and Overhead projection (projection of transparencies) will not be available.
Amongst hundreds of accepted posters at this year’s congress, approximately 250 - have been chosen to be presented electronically at the congress – as E-Posters.
This new presentation tool will be introduced during the MASCC/ISOO 2011 Symposium in Athens for the first time and will highlight the outstanding posters.
Those abstracts selected for e-Poster Presentations will be presented as an electronic presentation.
E-Posters will be presented during coffee & Lunch breaks and the evening receptions in the Poster Area on Thursday and Friday.
PDF versions of the selected posters will be transformed into an online friendly format called e-Poster.
These E-Posters will be available online to members and participants during the Congress and if permitted by the authors, after the Congress as well.
Viewers will be able to easily find and browse e-Posters, comment on e-Posters, and ask questions directly to the presenters (when allowed) and even download the posters in PDF format when permitted by the presenter.
Please create a PDF of your poster and bring a "back-up" copy of your presentation on disk or disk-on-key to the meeting.
If your abstract has been selected for e-Poster presentation, our e-Poster team will contact you shortly with further details.
