Poster presenters will have assigned times at which they will have to present and discuss the poster with other attendees of the poster session. Please see the programme for full details when it becomes available.
Poster set up: Posters are requested to be set up on 1st October 2020 prior to the first morning tea/coffee break. A team of volunteers will be available to help you set up your poster in the correct location. Your poster number and location will be provided when you arrive on site. Poster presenters should include their email address and photo on the poster so that interested people can reach them during the congress (either embedded or separately attached). Authors are responsible for setting up and also removing their poster. The WMS Congress Secretariat will not be responsible for loss of the poster after removal time.
Poster printing: The congress has no facility or arrangement for poster printing. Attendees will need to make their own arrangements. If possible, please attach a photo of the presenting author on the poster (either included in the poster printing or separately attached).
Poster presentation during Saturday morning poster highlights session: Please can each poster presenter also prepare 3-5 PowerPoint slides (including introduction, main findings, main messages, acknowledgement) in case the poster is selected for a flash poster presentation during the last morning’s poster highlights session. Presenters will be informed by the WMS Committee via email the day before that they will be presenting in this session. Please also make sure the presenters email address is on the poster so that interested people can make contact. The presenter must present data as indicated on the poster if selected for a flash poster presentation.

Poster size: Posters should be made in portrait orientation, maximum size DIN A0 (118.9 cm high, 84.1 cm wide).
