Presentation Format

The presentation format at AURS is poster presentation only.

(On-Site) Poster Presentation (90 minutes)

A poster presentation provides a relaxed presentation atmosphere in which the presenter uses a poster pinned to a poster board (1800mm high by 900mm wide) to illustrate their research. Presenters will often engage with interested participants on a one-to-one basis, providing excellent opportunities for networking, discussion and relationship building. The dimensions of the poster boards are fixed. Therefore, posters should be printed in portrait rather than landscape orientation.
