There are also white boards and/or flip charts available.

Posters - instructions

A poster is a graphically based approach to presenting research. In presenting your research with a poster, you should aim to use the poster as a means for generating active discussion of the research. You may use text and "visuals" (graphs, photographs, schematics, maps, etc.) to tell your "story". The preferred poster size is A0, A1 or A2 format (either landscape or portrait). Please bring a hard copy of your poster for the poster presentation session.


For paper and poster presenters at the IPA-conference: Please send your paper or poster no later than June 6, 2014 to, writing “Full paper” or "Full poster" in the subject heading. We will then make the papers and posters available for everyone during the conference (on a protected webspace and on USB sticks). Please save your contribution either in doc or pdf format.
