You are asked to follow these guidelines when preparing your poster presentation.

Presentation Session
The 'Official Poster Viewing Session' will take place on Thursday 4th October from 3.15pm to 4.15pm. The official poster prize giving ceremony will take place during Plenary III on Thursday October 4th from 4.15pm – 5.30pm. If you cannot attend, please try to ensure that a co-author attends in your place.

Poster Number
You will be allocated a poster board number and you can mount your poster on your allocated board. Poster numbers will be emailed to poster presenters and will also be available on the BBTS 2018 website one week before the conference.

Display Times
All posters must be in their allotted space by 10:30am on Wednesday 3rd October 2018. You will receive instructions where your allotted poster place will be. The poster display will be open to all delegates attending the Conference from Wednesday 3rd – Friday 5th October 2018. Posters should only be removed from Friday 5th October from 1pm. The conference organiser is not responsible for any posters left behind. After the Conference they will be removed and recycled.

How to mount your poster
The poster boards are made of cloth material and Velcro will be used to attach the poster to the board. You will be provided with adhesive velcro to attach the poster to the board.

Check Formatting
Be sure to carefully check the formatting of the poster once you have converted it to a .pdf file ready for print. Formatting can change when converting from a .ppt file or .doc file to a .pdf so it is essential you check the .pdf to ensure all colours, formatting etc is correct before printing.

Poster Printing
BBTS have arranged a poster printing facility should you wish to have your poster printed locally. The cost to print is £40 incl VAT and the presenters will need to book and pay directly with the printer. The poster will be delivered directly to the venue by October 3rd.
