Indicate Intent to Present a Poster
Presenters must confirm participation in the poster session by completing and returning the Poster Presenter Agreement form by Friday August 3, 2012 in adherence with the guidelines specified below. Authors are allowed to submit a maximum of 2 posters for the poster session.
Poster Approval Process
All posters must be submitted in their completed form to CanWEA by Monday August 20, 2012 for approval. Posters must be submitted in electronic format (Adobe PDF only) to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your poster is not submitted for approval or you do not receive approval from the poster session committee you will not be permitted to display your poster at the conference.
Unfortunately CanWEA is unable to provide a registration discount for poster presenters. To register for the conference, please visit the registration section of the conference website.
Poster presenters are responsible for printing and installing accepted posters in the poster session area. All poster spaces will be allocated by CanWEA and communicated with poster presenters in advance of the conference along with more detailed set up information. Poster set up will take place on Monday October 15th from 8:00am to 10:00am.
A poster reception will be held concurrent with the Exhibition Welcome Reception on Monday October 15th, 2012. This reception will be open to all conference delegates and poster presenters are required to be available to answer any questions regarding their work.
|Size:||Each poster presentation will occupy one poster unit or poster wall – the maximum usable space per poster is 75 cm (30″) wide x 100 cm (40″) tall.|
|Language:||Posters may be in either French or English (or both).|
|Identification:||Identify your poster near the top of the panel with the title of your presentation and the authors’ names and affiliations.|
|Content:||Poster Presenters are asked to strictly adhere to the above content guidelines. Contents of the poster must be on a single printed sheet. Limit your exhibit to essential data and include information to stimulate discussion. Most viewers will scan the display for its prominent features, and when something catches their attention, linger for closer study and possible discussion of details with the author. The written text should be sufficiently large to allow easy reading from a distance of approximately five feet.|
