Please be aware that according to the ICALEPCS rules at least one author has to be present at the poster during the poster session, otherwise the poster will not be included in the proceedings.
Participants in the poster sessions are invited to upload an electronic version of their posters (in pdf format) via user profiles in the conference instance of the SPMS system for access on this web site.
The poster shall be uploaded to the file server in portable document format only (pdf). The file shall be named with the programme code and "_poster.pdf" (for example TUPHA001_poster.pdf) and then uploaded in the same way as for papers using the author’s ICALEPCS2017 JACoW account ("Poster" selection).
Poster sessions, setup and removal
The posters will be on display in main Hall at the conference center. During two sessions:
- Tuesday 10th October, 16:45 to 19:00
- Thursday 12th October, 16:45 to 19:00
The assigned poster program code (e.g. TUPHA001) will be labelled in the correspondent panel.
The day after each poster session, posters must be removed from the panel to be ready for the next poster session. Posters that are not picked up by the authors, will be removed by the Conference staff, and will not be stored nor sent to authors.
Instructions for Poster Display
Each poster will be presented on a single board, whose dimensions are are 950 mm width × 2410 mm height.
The suggested usage is the display of an A0 page (84.1 cm x 118.9 cm) or US Arch E page (36 in x 48 in) in PORTRAIT orientation on the board. Note: Avoid landscape orientation for the A0/Arch E formats, as it will be too wide to fit the poster boards.
We recommend not using cloth posters since they are not correctly fastened with adhesive tape
The Organization will provide double-sided tape, no drawing pins are allowed.
Participants are asked to bring with them a printed copy of their posters.
