This part of the instructions applies equally well
to individual talks or poster presentations.
Abstracts must include the full names, address,
e-mails of the authors and advisors if applicable.
In general, abstracts should contain between 100
and 200 words. An abstract should clearly describe
the problem addressed, the state of affairs
concerning what is known about its solution, and
conclusions or new findings. Avoid mathematical
equations in the abstract proper if possible and,
specially, displayed equations. If a reference
must be mentioned or included, spell it out in
full within the text of the abstract.
Poster presentations foster the exchange of ideas
between the contributor and those who have a
specific interest in the contributor's work.
Poster presentations enable the presenters to
proceed at a pace consistent with the interests of
the group gathered around them. Your presentation
should be based on displayed material. In
preparing a poster presentation please follow the
following general recommendations:
A concise statement
of the problem and the results obtained should
be a conspicuous part of the display.
The display should
be designed to take advantage of the fact that
the presentation need not be "linearly ordered"
as in a talk or written paper. For example,
arrows directing the viewer to various parts of
the display, and color-coding of different
aspects of the work may be used to advantage.
Creative use of
graphic detail such as drawings, charts and
tables is recommended.
materials (not cardboard). 8-l/2" x 11" sheets
of paper are recommended.
You must provide
your own title-sign. Display materials should
fit within the 3 feet high x 7 feet wide area of
the poster board, and should be legible from a
distance of 10 feet-12 feet.
Test the readability
of your display before you arrive at the

Committee will provide poster boards.
