All posters will be presented electronically at the 2018 NCRI Cancer Conference.
Presenters will have the opportunity to bring along a printed copy of their e-poster which will be displayed in the Exhibition Hall during one of two sessions. Printed posters must fit the poster board area which is 2m x 1m (portrait). We advise that your poster size is A0 portrait. Landscape posters cannot be accommodated. If you want to prepare a handout for participants with a summary of your poster or a link to your e-poster, this must be no larger than A5 to fit in the document holder that will be provided on poster boards. Handouts placed on the floor will be removed for health and safety reasons. Please note: poster boards will only be allocated to those who specify that they will be bringing a paper copy when submitting their e-poster.
Oral presentations in the Exhibition Hall
Presenters will have the opportunity to present their e-poster orally and reserve a 6 minute slot in a dedicated silent theatre. A silent theatre is an informal presentation area within the Exhibition Hall where people can hear the presenter through headphones.
A link to access the e-poster template and to book poster presentation and silent theatre slots will be sent to all accepted presenters.
An e-poster or electronic poster utilises a monitor and computer to display an electronic version of a poster. Accepted presenters will be sent a link where they will be able to download a template to create their e-poster. The template can be amended as necessary (colours, font type and background can be changed) and images, charts and logos added as necessary (no animations or videos). We recommend font size is between 6-10 points as e-posters will be displayed on touch screens with zooming functionality. E-posters offer an opportunity to convey information more effectively and are also fully searchable, allowing delegates to find studies they are interested in more easily. All e-posters will also be available on the Conference App.
