Podium presentations will be 15 minutes plus 5 minutes for questions.  Session chairs will all ensure that these timings are adhered to.  You are requested to have the WCPAS IX banner included in your presentation. All presentations must be loaded onto the computer in the room before 1030 (for morning sessions) or before 1500 (for afternoon sessions).


Posters are to be size A0 and PORTRAIT orientation ONLY, thus a maximum of 841mm wide and 1189mm high.  All posters are requested to have the included WCPAS IX banner on them somewhere – you are very welcome to use this PowerPoint template.  The text used should be clearly visible from a distance of up to 2 metres, but other than this, the content/layout of your A0 portrait poster is up to you. You are required to be present at your poster for the whole of your scheduled poster session.  You will also be required to deliver a MAXIMUM 3 minute presentation of your poster to assembled delegates and a member of the scientific committee chairing the session.


To save carrying a poster tube across the world and to promote high quality poster presentations we would like to offer the chance for you to have your poster printed in Worcester and delivered to the Congress Desk for you to collect when you get here. We will acknowledge receipt of a pdf file of your poster before 1600 BST on Monday 23rd July (which should be created using an A0 portrait PowerPoint template - you are very welcome to use this PowerPoint template) which will be printed and delivered to the Congress Desk.  We will also arrange for your poster to be returned by mail to a given address after the Congress.  The cost for this service will be £42 inclusive of taxes*.  If you would like to make use of this service, please use this email link to contact us and we will require credit/debit card payment or an invoice number before we can send your poster to the printers.

*N.b. We will not be responsible for any proof editing of your poster, nor can we guarantee return of your poster to the given address after the Congress unless you pay an additional fee for recorded/special delivery.
