Instructions for Poster Presentations

The ASWC-2006 Poster Session will be held on Tuesday, September 5, from 17:30 to 19:00.

Each poster will be mounted on a board 0.6 meter wide and 1.6 meters tall.
It is suggested to be one of A1 size (594 x 841 mm) or two of A2 size (420 x 594 mm).

At least one author of the poster is expected to stand by the poster during the Poster Session, to present it to other delegates.

The layout of your poster is up to your taste, but here are a few general suggestions. Use a simple layout. Keep the amount of written text to a minimum by using keywords and phrases. Use clearly labelled graphs and
diagrams: pictures convey meaning more readily than printed text. Make sure to put the authors' names and contact information on your poster.

You may want to put your photo on or beside your poster. This will allow delegates who have seen the poster when you are not there (e.g., during a
break) to find you and discuss your work.

Any questions regarding the poster session and submissions may be sent by email to the poster session chairs: or
