Your poster must be written in ENGLISH. Please be available by your Poster throughout the Poster Session to which you have been assigned (see your confirmation letter).
If you adhere to the rules your Poster will be automatically judged for the “Best Poster Scholarship” Award.
Each poster should contain the following elements:
Text, tables and drawings for figures should be large enough to be seen at a distance of 2 meters. Illustrations should be used to convey important points; diagrams, graphs, bar charts, scatter grams, pie charts and photographs will enhance your presentation. Make short statements and avoid long explanatory sentences.
Please note that industry or commercial advertising is not allowed on poster presentations, however there is the exception for private dialysis unit chains to state their full name.
However clinical innovations and scientific advancements for educational purposes only will be acknowledged from corporate partners. This has been acknowledged as an absolute exception as an increasing number of renal providers now have their proprietorship with commercial companies.
In order to fit the poster board, your poster should not exceed 96 cm wide and 160 cm high (portrait orientation). Prepare your material beforehand so that it will fit neatly into the space available and can be easily attached to the board. The Conference organisers will provide suitable fixing materials, and on site assistance will be available to help you to display your poster. Thin cardboard is more suitable than paper. If you can have your poster produced by your hospital’s Medical illustration Department, the finished effect is more professional.
The Poster Area will be open for the mounting of posters on Saturday, 15 September 2012 from 12:00. All posters should be set up by 17:00 on Saturday, prior to the Conference Opening and remain in place until 11:45 on Tuesday 18 September 2012.
All material must be removed by the owner of the poster at the end of the Conference. EDTNA/ERCA and the Conference Organisers cannot accept responsibility for any material left behind. The organisers are not responsible for loss or damage to those posters that are not removed by authors within the times of dismantling as indicated above, posters left at the end of the Conference will be automatically destroyed.
EDTNA/ERCA is providing an on-line service for Association members. Authors of posters accepted for presentation during the Strasbourg Conference are invited to share and publish their poster on-line on the Association website – Member only area.
If any author wishes to share their poster please provide a copy of your final printed poster in a PDF or JPG format (print quality, no crop marks and file size not exceeding 4 MB). Please send your poster by email direct to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org by 10 September 2012.
