1. Poster presentation sessions are scheduled during Monday, May 20, 2002 to Friday, May 24, 2002. Before the Symposium, poster presenters will be provided with a poster floor plan and allocated a poster panel number. Poster presentation and the poster floor plan will be published in the Symposium Program.

  2. Posters are to be mounted on Sunday, May 19, 2002 (17:00 - 20:00) and on Monday, May 20, 2002 (08:00 - 19:00) and removed by 13:00 on Friday, May 24, 2002.

  3. Posters will be displayed on a free standing vertical board. The poster presentation dimensions should be 1.20m high by 0.80m wide.

  4. Photographs and diagrams should be large enough to be "read" at a distance of 1.5m.

  5. All text lettering should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5m. Lettering used for titles should be 20mm minimum. Large type from a word processor, photo-enlarged typing, stenciling, rub-down letters (e.g. Letraset) are recommended for text and captions. Freehand lettering is not recommended except for last-minute alterations. All text must be in English. Posters should include the name(s) and affiliations of the authors.

  6. All posters must carry the full title exactly as it appears in the accepted abstract of the contribution.

  7. In preparing the poster one should not attempt to detail the paper's entire research history. Data should be limited to support conclusions and they should be kept to a minimum in favour of diagrams and photographs.

  8. Presenters are expected to be in attendance at their poster during the scheduled viewing times to answer questions and discuss their material. They are also encouraged to advise on their poster other times when they are available to discuss their work.

Poster presenters do not have to worry about bringing along with them such adhesives.
