Notes for Poster Sessions
The poster session offers a valuable opportunity for authors to present papers and interact with interested attendees for in-depth discussions. It is important to design the poster in such a way that:
- It provides a clear overview of the study.
- It includes sufficient material to be self-explanatory and to initiate discussion and questions.
Designing effective posters requires careful thought and advanced preparation. Posters that are simply a PowerPoint presentation or short manuscript do NOT work.
2. DATE AND VENUE
The Poster Sessions of WASCON2023 will be held on 14 and 15 December 2023 (Thursday and Friday) at the Podium Floor of Block Z, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (the conference venue).
3. POSTER SESSION DETAILS
Authors should set up their posters before 9:00 am on the assigned date of poster session. At least one author of each paper should present during the two poster sessions on the assigned day (i.e. 14 or 15 December 2023) to interact with participants. Authors are required to bring hard copies of their posters and post them themselves, and are responsible for promptly removing all posters at the end of the conference on the assigned day. The uncollected posters will be trashed.
The Conference Organizer will provide 1 display board for each paper. Each paper can use 1 standard A0 size (841 mm in width x 1189 mm in height) poster for display. The Organizer will provide Blue Tape to the authors to mount the poster onto the board according to the number assigned.
However, there are no provisions for making posters at the conference, receiving, storing, or returning poster to authors.
Note that commercial advertising of products or services is not permitted.
4. LAYOUT SUGGESTIONS
- The material on the poster should be arranged in two columns, typically starting at top left and ending at bottom right.
- Text and illustrations should be readable from 1 m away.
- Colour is a good tool to highlight important points, however too many colours make poster look “busy” and make it difficult for viewers to find the critical points.
- Use pictures, graphs, and tables instead of text where possible.
5. CONTENT SUGGESTIONS
- Paper Title, Author Name(s), Institutional Affiliation(s)
- Introduction / Objectives
- Future Directions
