Practical information:


Poster presentations will be selected from submitted abstracts and displayed during poster sessions (see meeting schedule). Please mount posters at the start of the day and remove at 5pm. 


All posters will be no larger than 1m wide, 1.2 m high and attached to the poster boards provided at the venue.


Thanks to our sponsors, BioAutism Ltd, a prize will be awarded to the best poster presentation as judged by the conference committee.






  • Make sure poster text is large font and visible when viewing from 1 m away from the poster.

  • Do not generate a crowded poster - save some detail for when you speak to your audience

  • Figures should be the largest size possible to enable easy viewing.

  • Typically, posters will include a large title, and subheadings such as: Background, Methods, Results and Conclusions.
