Accepted for a poster presentation?

What you need to do….


  • Register for the conference by Thursday 28 April 2016
  • Submit a license to publish form by Thursday 28 April 2016 (please upload it to the paper submission system)
  • Create a poster for display at the conference. You will be required to print and bring your poster with you on the day. 

Poster presentation instructions:

In addition to your written paper included in the conference proceedings, authors selected for a poster presentation will be asked to produce and bring along a printed poster for display in the poster area at the conference.

At the conference in the catering / exhibition area there will be a number of large boards for you to display your poster on. The IET will provide Velcro to stick them to the boards. 

You will be allocated a poster session closer to the date of the conference. During this time you will be expected to be at your poster as it is your opportunity to present your work directly to other delegates. 

Authors that do not present their posters at the allocated time will not have the paper published.

 Your poster display

  • The poster board size is A1 59.4cm*84.1cm; You should clearly display the following information on your poster board:
  • The title of your paper 
  • The authors’ names and their affiliations 
  • Your usual contact details (e.g. an email address) to allow delegates to follow up discussion

Useful tips

  • Your display should consist chiefly of keywords, diagrams, photographs etc.
  • Diagrams and graphs should have clear captions 
  • All text should be easy to read
  • Use colour to emphasise important features
  • All graphs and diagrams should be drawn with thick lines (preferably 1mm or more in width)
  • Handwritten text or diagrams are not recommended 


  • The display should be visually appealing and should contain the essence of your paper in a form that is easy to understand
  • Try to attract the registrants to your poster. Unless they come to it, you cannot expect to have a discussion with them
  • The poster can contain visuals that were not present in your paper
  • The poster display is important. You are recommended to take as much trouble with it as you did in preparing your written paper.
