Poster Presenter Information

Poster Instructions The sizes of the poster boards are 2.40 m (height) and 0.98 m (width). We recommend using A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm or 33.1 x 46.8 inches) portrait format, however, you are free to use any other format that fits the indicated space. The only limitations on your poster size is that it be smaller than these dimensions. Please note, height will be the bigger dimension, so you will need to make your poster taller than it is wide.

Your poster number appears at the end of this document. It will also be listed in the conference program booklet which you will receive when you register on-site. You can set up your poster starting in the morning at 8.00 on Wednesday June 10. All posters should be set up at the latest by 9.00 on Thursday, June 11. The posters will be presented in the exhibition area on the ground floor of the Palacio de Congresos. Poster stands, exhibition booths and coffee tables will be interspersed with each other. Materials to hang the poster will be provided.

Author Availability Authors should be present near their posters during the Thursday June 11 poster session (15:20 – 17:00). The Best Poster and Best Student Poster evaluators will be visiting all posters at that time.

Best Poster Awards There will be a ICVR Best Poster award (sponsored by Motekforce Link) and a Best Student Poster award (sponsored by the International Society for Virtual Rehabilitation). 

Fast-forward Session All poster presenters will participate in a Fast-forward (FF) session be held on Wednesday June 10 from 15:30-16:10. In this session you will have one minute to entice the participants to visit your poster. Please submit a single 4:3 slide to Roberto Llorens: by May 31, 2015.

Demos There will be an opportunity to demonstrate your software/hardware provided it is non-commercial. We can accommodate a maximum of five demos at one time. Please note that space is limited to a coffee table and presenters must supply everything they need, speakers, projectors, etc. Demos will be held at the exhibition area, near the poster stands and exhibition booths. Please contact Roberto Llorens: if you are interested in reserving a space for a demo.
