Poster Presentations

Poster abstracts must be submitted via the online abstract submission process.

Submit Poster Abstract

Important information for poster presenters:

Digital Submission Requirements

All accepted poster presenters must provide an A4-sized PDF version of their poster, to be uploaded onto the conference to the AAA website. 

Please send your A4 PDF to, by no later than Friday 24 November 2017.

Please ensure that your poster file is resized to A4, to make the file size manageable for digital upload. If you have created your poster in digital layers, make sure the image is flattened prior to saving the PDF version to further reduce file size.

Display boards and poster sizes

Posters will be displayed on double-sided freestanding boards. The surface of the boards are carpeted; posters can only be attached with Velcro tape (available from Registration Desk). The poster boards will accommodate posters up to ISO A0 size (1189mm x 841mm) in portrait format only, with two posters on each side. Please DO NOT prepare your poster in landscape format.

All posters are to be printed on high quality paper. Regardless of the program in which the paper is created, the digital canvas size should be set to the desired output size (e.g. A0, A1) to avoid resolution issues. We prefer that posters are printed on paper/cardboard and not printed on cloth material – cloth material and Velcro don’t work well together and your poster will spend much of it’s time on the floor!!

Image permissions and acknowledgements

It is the responsibility of the poster authors to ensure that permission has been granted for all images used and that the source of any such images are acknowledged.

Set up & Pack Down

Please bring your poster to the Registration Desk upon arrival on Wednesday 6 December. You will be provided with velcro dots and advised which number location to hang your poster.

Your poster must be dismantled by Friday 8 December by 6.00pm. Any posters that are still on display after 6.00pm will be removed and held at the hotel reception for collection by Monday 11 December only. Any posters not collected by this date will be discarded. Dismantling of posters is the responsibility of the author and no responsibility can be accepted by the organisers for the collection or safekeeping of posters.
