ePoster FAQ

Find the answer to some frequently asked questions about our ePosters.

  • Do I have to pay to display my ePoster?

    In order to present your ePoster at the International Forum, you must register and pay the full fee for the two main event days (Monday 25 July – Tuesday 26 July). This applies to all ePoster presenters. Please note there are no one-day registration options for ePoster presenters.

    The deadline for all poster presenters to register and pay to attend the International Forum is Wednesday 22 June. If you do not register and pay by this date we will regretfully assume your circumstances have changed and you no longer wish to present your work.

  • What should I do if I am unable to present my ePoster myself?

    If you cannot present your ePoster and are sending a colleague, you must inform us by email to This will ensure that we have a space for the ePoster display. Please include the full abstract title and the name, email address and organisation for your replacement presenter.

    Please note that your replacement presenter cannot be already presenting an ePoster of their own. We have a strict policy of one ePoster display per presenter.

  • Can my abstract for ePoster display be written on any topic?

    We have seven topics that you could submit to. You will be asked to choose which topic you are submitting your abstract to during the submission process. Please make sure that your abstract matches the topic you are submitting to.

    A list of topics can be found here.

    All ePosters will be displayed on site during the two main event days, Monday 25 July – Tuesday 26 July. They will also be made available online.

  • How will my ePoster be displayed on-site?
