Sri Lanka College of Radiologists 16th Annual Academic Sessions 2017 in The Grand Kandyan Hotel Kandy

Digital poster displays at 16th Annual Academic sessions of Sri Lanka College of Radiologists

  • At SLCRC 2017, accepted posters will be displayed in digital display only.

  • It is mandatory to submit digital posters to SLCRC 2017 for each accepted abstract by 16.08.2017 at the latest.

  • The Scientific Exhibition Jury will evaluate the uploaded posters on a specified date and time (to be informed later) to select the winners.

  • The presenting authors of posters will be asked to present their work in person at SLCRC 2017, during moderated events. Date and time will be informed to you. Presenters may be requested to stand by their poster for a 5- minute presentation.

  • The posters are displayed at 40” LCD Sony Bravia monitor. In vertical height of 38.9” (98.8cm) and horizontal width of 27” (68.5cm).

  • When preparing text and illustrations, bear in mind the posters will be viewed from a distance of 1 meter.

  • Text:

  • We recommend that authors prepare their poster texts in advance using standard word processing programmes, run a spell check, and then copy-and-paste the elements from the prepared document into the appropriate sections in the poster.

  • Images:

  • We recommend that you identify and prepare images well in advance of the deadline. All images should be ready in an adequate format and size (recommended: format .jpg/.jpeg, size: 1024x768 pixels; resolution: 72 dpi; mode: RGB; max. file size 3MB). Please check your images in the "view" mode to ensure that size and resolution are sufficient and the viewer will be able to recognize the relevant details.

  • Tables:

  • Tables can be created with a table editor; however, complicated tables and spreadsheets can be presented as image files.

  • Posters should not solely consist of text and most viewers are unlikely to spend much time on a poster that does not have a sufficient number of images/figures to support the text. Therefore, the inclusion of images/figures to illustrate your poster is encouraged.

  • Images must be appropriately linked to the text, either by embedding the image in the text, or by linking an image from the side bar to the text – a clearly presented image is often worth a thousand words and the wrong text-image link destroys the validity of the poster.

  • Color attracts attention, but too much can be distracting. Please make sure that uploaded coloured images are clear - just because it looks good in one format does not guarantee that it will have the same effect when uploaded.

  • Final poster should be save in JPG, pdf or picture format.

  • Poster will be displayed for 2 full days during the congress.

  • The audio visual group is willing to help you to in advice.

  • You may contact Dr Udaya Wanigasiri 0718312804/ wanigasiri@yahoo.com o issues regarding digital poster display.
