Poster Guidelines

A typical poster is a single, printed page measuring no larger than 1.15 m wide x 1.45 m high. We do not have layout requirements regarding posters, but we suggest a size of DIN A0 (upright). The presenters are encouraged to mount their posters in the Foyer as early as possible and to leave them in place until the end of the conference. The poster area will be accessible Monday evening through Friday afternoon, May 22-26. The pin boards will be designated with the poster number, title and author names. Each presenter will mount his/her poster to the panel (pushpins will be provided). We will not have facilities for printing your poster - bring it with you!
Poster session
The poster session will take place in the Foyer, Thursday afternoon, May 25, 17:00-18:30. Presenters are encouraged to remain with their posters for the duration of the poster session to discuss their results and answer questions. All presentations must be confined to the poster topic itself. Handout materials are welcome in the poster session. Other display equipment or devices, such as computers, sound or projection, free-standing or three-dimensional display demonstrations, cannot be accommodated.
Student poster award
PPS-38 recognizes the best student poster presentations with certificates and monetary awards (1st place CHF 800, 2nd place CHF 400 and 3rd place CHF 300, kindly sponsored by coatings/MDPI), plus a free entry to the banquet. Student participants who wish to be considered for this award must present their posters at the poster session (in person). Posters will be evaluated by a team of designated judges (criteria can be found here). The poster award ceremony will take place on Thursday evening at the banquet. The three winners will be posted on Thursday the latest by 18:30 on the information screen located in the main hall. Please check the information screen to see if your poster won. The three winners can obtain their free banquet pass at the reception desk located in the main hall.
Presenters are responsible for removing their posters after the conference concludes (no posters can be removed before Friday, May 26). The Polymer Processing Society and the host institution will not assume responsibility for unclaimed posters or supplemental material.
