Instructions and advice for posters and talks
The poster boards will be 6 feet high and 6 feet wide (i.e. 1.8m x 1.8m) - suitable for mounting regular A0 size (rollable, 1189mm x 841mm) or even ARO-sized posters in either landscape or portrait formats.
The posters can be fixed to the boards with either pins or velcro, which will be supplied by the organisers.
Guidelines on good poster presentations are online at http://www.aro.org/mwm/poster.htm. The bit starting with "To maximize the effectiveness of the poster, keep the presentation simple and clear, ..." seems particularly relevant.
Talks will be presented in a modern, tiered lecture theatre, with seating for 200 people.
Talks are scheduled at 30 minute intervals. Each talk should therefore last between 20 and 25 minutes, leaving between 5 and 10 minutes for discussion between talks. Speakers who over-run will probably be shot.
A computer projection screen system will be used for most presentations. The host PC is Windows based, with regular Powerpoint and PDF viewers available. Presentations can be uploaded from most USB-based memory sticks, from CD/DVDs, or from the world-wide-web.
Presenters who wish to use their own PCs may do so via a regular 15-pin VGA cable.
A regular overhead transparency projection (OHP) system will also be available.
All presentations should be checked, double-checked, and then checked one more time in the lecture theatre itself AT LEAST ONE DAY PRIOR TO DELIVERY . The lecture theatre will be available from 1:30pm on Saturday afternoon for those people who are scheduled to talk on Sunday, and between 12:30 and 2:30pm on all other days for the following day's speakers. Speakers whose presentations fail because they have ignored this advice will definitely be shot.
Posting presentations on-line
Presentations can be made available on-line at the authors request, either via a link to the author's own website or internally on the MoH website.
To take advantage of this offer, please provide either the link address or a PDF of your presentation electronically, as email attachments, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Due to storage limitations on our web-server, presentations requiring more than 2 MBytes of storage can not be accepted on our system (although we can link to your own servers).
