Poster Session Information:

The Technical Committee Chair, Matteo Leoni, encourages members to submit posters or displays for the poster session.

Poster Guidelines
Poster boards are 40 inches high, 60 inches wide, and about 1/4 inch thick, comprised of foam board. Pins and Velcro will be available to attach your poster to the foam boards. Authors are asked to post their presentations approximately 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.

Guidelines for Preparing Abstracts
Abstracts will be posted as received on the ICDD webpage. If you do not want your abstract posted, please note your request in your e-mail message when you submit it. Abstracts must not exceed one page in length and must include the title, author(s), affiliation(s), and the text. To provide uniformity, it is recommended that abstracts be prepared in Microsoft® Word, according to the following guidelines:

Abstract Format

  • Paper Size: 8.5 x 11 inches; A4 paper must be formatted for 8.5 x 11 inches
  • Size: Entire abstract, including title, author(s), affiliation(s), and text, must fit into a maximum area of 15 cm (5.9") wide by 20 cm (7.9") high. Please allow a top margin of 3.8 cm (1.5") and 2.54 cm (1") margins on all other sides
  • Font: Times or Times New Roman, 12 point
  • Title: bold, centered, all uppercase (except where lowercase letters are needed for clarity)
  • Leave one blank line between the title and the author(s)
  •  Author(s) and affiliation(s): mixed upper and lowercase, centered; if there is more than one author, underline the presenting author's name
  • Leave two blank lines before beginning text
  • Text:
    • text should appear flush left; do not indent
    • use line spacing sufficiently large enough to allow the abstract to be read easily, including subscripts, superscripts and Greek letters
    • a blank line is recommended (space permitting) between new paragraphs

Submission
The preferred method of submitting your abstracts is in a PDF format via this ICDD submission form.

However, if you require an alternate method, please contact Eileen Jennings - E-mail: jennings@icdd.com or Tel: +610-325-9814.

Abstracts should be submitted no later than 1 March 2016.
