Poster guidelines

These guidelines are for people who are presenting a poster at the IFBF 2023 Conference. They explain what you should provide and give guidance for your content. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Rights

You are responsible for ensuring that you have the rights to the content of your poster and associated materials, and that you have not infringed the rights of others. You agree that you have the consent of any co-authors.

Content

Posters allow you to showcase your research, products, or services. Your poster should encourage delegates to contact you and exchange ideas.

Your poster should be informative. It should cover a scientific, technical, financial, or commercial aspect of flow batteries. Although we are interested to learn about your company’s or institution’s plans and commercial ambitions, your poster should not be used to solely advertise or promote your company or institution.

Poster session

Delegates will be able to ask questions about your poster throughout the conference but there will also be a dedicated poster session. All poster presenters are required to attend the poster session.

We invite poster presenters to give a one minute speed pitch immediately before the poster session to promote their work. There is limited availability for these speed pitches and positions will be allocated at the conference. If you would like to give a speed pitch, please follow the speed pitch guidelines.

Format

There is no IFBF poster template. We have a set of minimal requirements, but the style is up to you; please be as creative as you like.

  • Your poster should be printed on a single sheet of A0 size paper in portrait orientation (1189 mm height by 841 mm width).
  • If you do not wish to use the full space available, please use A1 size paper.
  • Your poster must have a white background and a margin of 50 mm on all sides.
  • The IFBF logo must be displayed in the top right-hand corner of your poster: blue text on a white background, 100 mm height, aligned with the edge of the margins (50 mm from the top and right-hand edge of your poster). The IFBF logo is available here.
  • Posters must be written in UK English using UK English spelling.

The template for conference papers includes additional guidance including the use of abbreviations, units and references.

Two example posters are available here: poster 1poster 2.

Submission

Please submit your poster via Oxford Abstracts. Please upload either an unlocked Microsoft Word or Microsoft PowerPoint file, and the separate pdf file.

Please submit your poster as soon as possible to allow us time to prepare the conference materials. The deadline for poster submissions is 5 June 2023.

Review

All posters will be reviewed. If time permits, we will contact you regarding any changes or clarifications.

Printing

Please print your poster yourself and bring it to the conference. On arrival, please hand it to our staff at the registration desk. We will provide a poster board and fixing materials.

Display

Delegates will be able to ask questions about your poster throughout the conference, but there will also be a dedicated poster session. All poster presenters are required to attend the poster session.

Poster presenters may also give a one minute speed pitch immediately before the poster session to promote their work. There is limited availability for these speed pitches; please apply at the registration desk. After the poster session, awards will be presented to the best posters and poster presenters. Please follow the speed pitch guidelines.

Please do not remove your poster until after lunch on the final day of the conference. Posters that are left at the end of the conference will be removed and discarded.

Publication

All the information disclosed in your poster will be in the public domain, irrespective of any caveats or protective markings on your presentation.

We will publish your poster after the conference unless you tell us otherwise.

Conference paper

You may also submit a paper to supplement your poster and further promote your work. Extra information may be included in your conference paper that you may not have room for in your poster.

Papers provide a record of each year’s conference and will be published in the book of IFBF Conference Papers. This book will be made available to all delegates at the conference in electronic format. Please follow the paper guidelines.
