*Poster Presentations

-This format is perfect for developing research and/or preliminary results.
-Poster sessions offer presenters the opportunity for interaction and discussion with the audience.
-Posters visually present research studies.
-Please come with the poster printed and ready to set up for the poster conference.
-The poster title, should be placed at the middle top of the poster. Author’s name(s) and affiliation(s), the short name of the conference and the logo of COMinG (we will provide it to the participants, please ask it by email in case you are presenting a poster), should be placed at the right bottom of the poster. The committee would need to have a provisional /draft poster in doc or pdf file, to decide for its presentation.
-Accepted posters should be produced in A1 portrait size.
-Poster presentation will take place close to the conference rooms. Each displayed poster will be identified by a number specified at the conference program.
-Posters will be available for viewing throughout the conference and must be taken down the days which will be fixed on the scheduled program. Authors give an oral presentation of about 5 minutes for each poster to an audience gathered as a group. An in-depth discussion with the audience follows.
-Poster presenters are responsible for mounting and removing their posters themselves. Equipment to fix the posters on the boards will be provided by the conference administration.
-Poster presenters should be available for discussion at their posters during the formal poster sessions, proposed on the conference program, where all delegates are encouraged to attend.
-Last but not least, both oral & visual poster presentations should be conducted in English.
