Presentation guidelines for poster presentations


The NetSci conference poster sessions will be held in the Exhibition Room, room 2000BC. 
Poster sessions provide an opportunity for informal, interactive presentations and discussions. 

Each presenting author will receive a schedule and a poster code by email. Each author will have access to 1 side of a poster board, and each will have a useable area measuring a maximum of 40" (102 cm) high and 36" (91 cm) wide. Poster materials should not extend outside the assigned area. A label indicating your poster number will be placed on the top of your board space. Technical equipment will be available for the mounting of posters. 


Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract. Simple "Introduction" and "Conclusion" sections are helpful. When feasible, use graphs for depicting qualitative relationships and tables for precise numerical values.


Presenters are required to be at their posters during the scheduled session.

Presenters are responsible for the setting up and the removal of their posters according to the schedule:
Setup: June 19 between 10 am and 4 pm.
Removal: June 20 from 1 to 4 pm.
