Poster preparation guidelines

These guidelines are for people who are presenting a poster at the rescheduled IFBF 2020 conference, from 19th – 20th January 2021. You will receive an IFBF formatted poster template for completion by email. If you are not the presenter, please forward this to the presenter and email us with their details.

We will display your poster on the IFBF Hub before and during the conference. Other delegates will be able to view your poster and to submit comments, questions or join in the discussion about your work. Posters allow you to showcase your research and products and, encourage delegates to meet you and exchange ideas. All poster presenters may submit a presentation video of maximum 2 minutes length, which will be uploaded to the IFBF 2020 hub. 

There will be a dedicated session during the conference for discussion of posters. Poster presenters will need to be available to answer any questions regarding their posters during this session. 

Delegates submitting a poster may also submit a 2-page conference paper of their poster. Papers provide a record of each year’s IFBF and will be published in the Conference Book of Papers.

Please follow the separate conference paper guidelines.

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.

Formatting your poster

Two example conference posters in the correct format are shown here: example 1, example 2.  

Please submit posters as an unlocked MS word or MS powerpoint file and include a .pdf file. As your poster is likely to be read on a computer screen, it should be sized to be legible at A3 size. You may submit it in A3 landscape format. The poster should have a white background and the IFBF logo in the top right-hand corner of your poster, blue on white. The poster must be a single sheet.

Submission and review

Your poster must be submitted on or before 15th November 2020 via Oxford Abstracts. Please upload your poster as soon as possible to allow us time to prepare the conference materials.

All posters will be reviewed before posting on the IFBF Hub. If time permits, changes or clarifications will be referred to the author.
