Poster Instructions

Poster Presentations

Posters are an important part of a technical conference like INTELEC. They are an alternative to oral presentations to convey the technical messages of papers accepted into the Conference Proceedings.

For INTELEC 2017, posters are to be on displayed for the duration of Conference, and conference attendees will have the opportunity to absorb the purpose of the work, key information and findings. During specifically nominated Poster sessions times, the authors of the work are to be available at the Poster to discuss and take questions about the work. To increase the opportunity for authors to present their work, there are two (2) two Poster Presentation session times at INTELEC 2017:-

Tuesday, 24 Oct 2017 10-45am- 12 noon
Wednesday, 25 Oct 2017 10-45am- 12 noon

Presenters are expected to be available to discuss their poster during BOTH these times.
