Removing your poster

Poster presenters should remove their posters by 16:00 on Sunday. Posters not taken down by 16:00 will be removed and disposed of.

Tips for preparing your poster

Your poster will be the means to present your work and get your message across. To achieve this, we strongly recommend following the guidelines below:

  • Make use of colour and graphics. At least 3 pictures or figures are recommended to graphically show your study design and results.
  • Make your message clear. Highlight your AIM and CONCLUSION on the poster using large, bold or coloured fonts.
  • Be brief. Use bullet points and only the most relevant text.
  • Prepare a pitch to explain the main message of your work, making use of the pictures and figures on your poster.

Please make sure to bring your printed poster with you to the venue.

If you do not wish to take your printed poster with you to Calgary, you can take advantage of a local printing option for $60 CAD excluding VAT per poster.
