Poster presentations

The Poster Session is taking place on Friday 7 June at 11:00-12:00. During that time, poster authors are invited to stand by their posters and tell participants a few words about their work.

The posters can be placed on the conference area (at the “Mercatori”) already on Thursday 6 June, 9:00am – 10:00am, during the registration & coffee time. We kindly ask Poster authors to be early at the registration, so you can put up your posters before the opening speech, at 10:00am.

If you are late, and don’t have time to place the posters on Thursday morning, it is also possible to place them at 15:00 during the coffee break, or then on Friday morning, at 8:30am.

There should be some conference assistants helping you to put up the posters during the above specified times.

There are not any strict guidelines for the preparation of the poster presentations. Mainly the size of the screens is setting some limitations. There will been removable screens where you can pin your poster. Screens are 120cm tall and 87cm wide. Alternatively you can bring your own roll-up banner stand.

Authors are expected to be in attendance at their posters only during the poster session. You are free to bring and distribute presentations, papers or other brochure material at the conference. If you need a table, chair or any other equipment, please contact us at: futuresconference2013@utu.fi
