SPEAKERS PREPARATION ROOM
There will be a speakers preparation room available for speakers to check their presentations. The room will be located on the Mezzanine Level in room N10 and will have staff from the BCEC to assist at all times. If you wish to check your presentation, please do so as early as possible (ie. the day before).
The posters will need to be A0 size (841mm x 1189mm). Layout of posters needs to be Vertical (portrait) to ensure it fits on the poster boards. Authors will need to bring their poster with them to the conference already printed and laminated.
The poster viewing session is at Morning Tea on Thursday, 3 November from 10.00am - 11.00am. It is expected that all poster authors will be available at their posters for any questions during this session.

Tips for Creating Your File
Images should be at least 150 DPI at their printed size, please allow for this when scaling images.
(For example if you creating a file at A4 size with images at 150 DPI and wanting to print at A1
size, the enlargement factor of 283% would mean that your printed DPI is approx. 53 DPI.) Most
images taken from the internet will be 72 DPI, which is too low for printing.
Generally it is best to use only 2 – 3 fonts on a poster this will make your poster easier to read.
Headings are best in a font such as Arial and body text in a font like Times New Roman. It is
best to use an actual Bold or Italic font rather than simply selecting bold or italic in the menu
commands - these may not print as shown on the screen.
Font sizes will depend on how big you create your poster and how much data you have. As a
general rule if you were creating a poster in A0 size you might have a heading at 70pt and body
text might be at 24pt to 36pt depending on the amount of body text you have.
It will depend on the program you use as what range of colours you
can select. Do not use Pantone Colours as these are spot colours which
are not printable on many systems, in a worst case scenario Pantone
colours will print as a blank white space. From a design perspective it
is best to limit the number of colours on your poster to 3 to 4 colours
