Guideline for Poster presentations

Your poster should cover the key points of your work. It need not, and should not, attempt to include all the details; you can describe them in person to people who are interested. The ideal poster is designed to attract attention, provide a brief overview of your work, and initiate discussion. Carefully and completely prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. Try tacking up the poster before you leave for the conference to see what it will look like and to make sure that you have all of the necessary pieces.

For your poster, a board will be provided. Your poster should NOT be bigger than 900mm X 2200mm. Double-sided tape will be provided at the conference to mount your poster to the board.

Please make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your efforts for technical discussions. There will not be any summaries given at the beginning of the poster sessions at APSIPA ASC 2017, so authors need not prepare any overhead slides for their poster presentations. You may bring additional battery-operated audio or visual aids to enhance your presentation.

Prepare a short presentation of about 5 or 10 minutes that you can periodically give to those assembled around your poster throughout the 100-minute poster session. If possible, more than one author should attend the session to aid in presentations and discussions, and to provide the presenters with the chance to rest or briefly view other posters.

Poster and oral papers have the same status. The decision is made mostly due to the restrictions imposed by session building.
