Participants may choose to submit an abstract for consideration as a Poster Presentation. Abstracts should conform to the submission guidelines outlined in the section on General Guidelines for Abstract Submissions.

If accepted as a Poster Presentation, authors are requested to use to the guidelines recommended below. It is acknowledged that some posters may require a slightly different approach.

• Recommended Poster Size: Poster board size — 238 cm (93″) high x 95 cm (37″) wide.
• Font: The poster must have clearly visible type face that is not smaller than 16 point.
• Recommended Content: Maximum pertinent information should be provided in the poster. The poster should reflect:

■ The title (abbreviations should be avoided in the title)
■ The author/s & institutional affiliations
■ E-mail address of corresponding author
■ If the subject matter is empirical, the presentation should reflect: the specific objective(s) of the study/presentation; methods of data collection and analysis; summary of the results obtained or anticipated; conclusions reached; and recommendations made.
■ In the case of non-empirical posters, the presentation should ideally reflect: the specific objective(s) of the presentation; key theoretical framework(s); presentation’s central argument(s); conclusions reached; and recommendations made.

The author of a Poster Presentation (in the case of a multi-author poster, at least one author) must be present during the time slot allocated to interact with and answer questions that delegates may have. Presenters are responsible for mounting and removing posters from poster boards, and should ensure that appropriate material is brought for this purpose (e.g., double-sided tape).

Notification of acceptance will be emailed to the individual submitting the abstract.
