Poster Instructions

Instructions for Poster Presenters Due to the large number of posters, two rounds of poster display will be arranged. Posters should be mounted on the poster board that corresponds with the Poster Code in the poster area (Rooms CPD-LG.07 and LG.10) at the designated time. Presenters should be available for questions and discussion near their poster during poster walks, and the coffee and lunch breaks as much as possible.

Maximum size of the poster is size A0 in portrait format (i.e. 84.1cm width x 118.9 cm height). Presenters are reminded to bring their printed posters to the conference venue. No printing service will be provided on site. The conference staff will provide materials for fixing posters to boards.

All posters that have not been dismounted during the designated time will be removed by the conference staff and kept at the registration desk until the end of the conference. All uncollected posters after the conference will be destroyed.

Poster Walks Moderated poster walks will be scheduled during the extended lunch breaks on June 3 and June 4. Each poster will be featured in a poster walk among a group of posters divided into thematic clusters. Each presenter will have 2 minutes to pitch his/her poster and 3 minutes for questions from the audience.

Poster Awards Five poster awards will be granted for early career scholars who have completed the most recent graduate training in the past 10 years, including a first-place award (US $2,000), along with four second-place prizes (US $1,200 each). Awards are supported by a grant from the U.S. Office of Research Integrity and will be announced during the conference dinner on June 4, 2019.

Evaluation Criteria for Poster Awards Academic/scientific quality – Originality of topic/question, clear methodology, consideration of pertinent literature, relevance to the conference theme and contribution to advancing the field (e.g., addresses new challenges for research integrity and offers new insights).

Poster Quality – Overall design, color scheme, and format (e.g., visually appealing, conveys the project data and conclusions effectively).

Presentation Skill – Clarity of presentation within the allotted time, knowledge of the topic and related literature, mastery of relevant issues, including strengths and limitations of the ideas and methods.

Note from the Poster Committee The language of the conference is English and no simultaneous translation services will be provided. You have two minutes to present your poster in English. We encourage you to practice your presentation several times. If English is not your native language, as you prepare it could be useful to ask a native or fluent English speaker to provide feedback and help you articulate your poster theme effectively within two minutes.

These are tips for you to prepare your poster!
