Please read over the following guidelines for the 2008 Poster Exposition and notify your members of them as soon as possible to avert potential problems:
All groups will be limited to a maximum of 16 posters to prevent the over-crowding which we have experienced at prior poster expositions.
Poster size is limited to 22" high x 28" wide. No exceptions. SIG leaders are responsible for informing all poster presenters of this requirement. ABCT reserves the right to exclude posters larger than this size. It is suggested that presenters prepare handouts for viewers if they are not able to display all essential information on their posters.
All presenters must pre-mount their posters on foam core or cardboard. For easy viewing, ABCT will provide "easel-back" stands so the posters can be displayed on tables. These stands have an adhesive strip for easy mounting. Set up should take only a few minutes. Posters may not be displayed on hotel walls or other hotel fixtures. There are no electrical outlets available for computers or other electrical equipment. Consequently, all such equipment must rely upon batteries as a power source.
Poster titles and authors will be listed in the Addendum to the Convention Program that will be included in all convention registration packets. The Addendum will include all poster titles and authors' names that have been received from SIG Leaders.
Only those posters whose titles have been submitted by the deadline will be guaranteed space at the Poster Expo. ABCT orders viewing tables, sign holders, etc. based on the number of poster titles that have been submitted. Consequently, there may not be space or materials for last minute additions.
Please show up at 6:15 p.m. All presenters must bring their posters to the SIG Poster Exposition 15 minutes before opening time for set up.
The SIG Poster Exposition will be held in the Southern Hemisphere.
