Selection of Abstracts for Posters
Submitted abstracts will be peer reviewed and accepted/rejected for presentation as a poster. The closing date for submissions is 24 Feb 2006. Abstracts will be reviewed as soon as possible after submission, usually within a few days.
Full details of abstract submission and review status are on the Abstracts page.
Presenters are strongly advised NOT to leave their poster tubes or cases in the poster areas. The organisers will not be held responsible for any losses which may be incurred.

Info for Poster Presenters
All posters must be in position by 10.00 on 1st June 2006 and will remain on display for the duration of the meeting.

Poster Preparation Guidelines
Don't forget the two Poster Competitions.
- The heading of the poster should include your title, authors, and addresses/affiliations
- Choose the key message(s) that you wish to convey (no more than 3 typically)
- Use headings to highlight each point
- Keep text to a minimum - do not simply enlarge an abstract
- Make use of graphs, charts, tables, and columns
- Keep lettering as large as possible, at least 2-3cm to make your poster readable from about 1m away
- Make use of colour to highlight key points
- Remember, there will be several hundred posters. Those that make a quick impression with a clear message are more likely to be noticed
