Power-Up Facilities for Laptops/Macs
For charging their laptops/Macs participants may use all areas where open power-sockets are available, such as in the Lan and WLan as well as in the poster areas. Near the post office on the Yellow Level (Ground Floor) there is a cupboard with separate compartments for charging laptops which can be locked.
The display time is the time for the actual display of all posters of a session or of a group of sessions. The display time is from 08:00–19:30 for each day. Authors are kindly asked to put up their posters as soon as possible (08:00–09:00, but not in the evening before the scheduled display day), respectively, in order to enable the conference participants to view their posters at any time within the display time, and to take them down between 19:00–19:30. After 19:30 the remaining posters will be taken down by the conference staff, and they will be marked by the day and their poster number and stored in the poster area in corresponding boxes marked "Taken Down Posters".
Authors in Attendance Time(s)
The "Authors in Attendance Time(s)" is (are) the time(s) when the respective authors of a poster session must be present at their display for presentation. The "Authors in Attendance Time(s)" of each poster session is/are given in the programme.
Place the title of your paper prominently at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your paper easily. Indicate the title and the author(s) names of your paper. Highlight the author's name and address information, in case the viewer is interested in contacting him/her for more information.
Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand, in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 1.5-2.0 metres. The type should be at least 2.5 cm high. Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even colour and double-space all text. Use different colours or textures for each line or bars contained in your graph or chart.
Organize the paper on the posterboard so that it is clear, orderly, and self explanatory. You have complete freedom. The presentation must cover the same material as the abstract. Label different elements as 1, 2, 3, or A, B, C. This will make it easier for a viewer to follow your display.
Include the background of your research, followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey the information to an interested audience.
Oral Summaries of Posters
Authors of poster papers should be prepared to provide ad hoc a summary of their poster presentation during their oral sessions in case a gap should occur in the time schedule and no stand by paper should be available to fill in. In other cases the convener may have foreseen the presentation of poster summaries during the oral session. Please, check the programme and contact the "Guidelines for Oral Presentations".
Audio Visual Equipment
Audio-visual equipment can be made available in the poster areas. Authors should order these with the "Notice of Schedule", i.e., once the final status of the presentations have been decided upon by the Programme Committee. Authors will be charged for any additional equipment.
Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper
Several Divisions and Sections of the EGU have established the "Young Scientist Outstanding Poster Paper (YSOPP) Award" to motivate the younger participants in the assembly to present a poster paper.
Students wishing to participate in this contest should indicate so when receiving their "Notice of schedule".
