Poster boards will be in portrait orientation. The size of the useable surface of the poster boards is 2.5 m (H) x 1 m (W) – please ensure that your poster fits within these limits. Authors should bring their posters to Busan, or personally arrange to have them printed locally.

Posters should be attractive, clear and legible and could include graphs, photos, diagrams as well as a limited amount of text. Paragraph and figure caption text should be at least 24-point font (0.9 cm high) and headers at least 36 point font (1.2 cm high). Heavy grade paper is recommended, but regular grade paper can also be used. Supplies for mounting posters will be provided at the meeting.

There will be four poster sessions, one each day.  You will be notified in advance about which session(s) your poster will be displayed and which day you should be present at your poster to accept questions.

Poster Lightning Sessions

All poster presenters will be able to share information with the audience quickly and efficiently during two Poster Lightning Sessions:

  • Tues 9 April: 16:30 – 17:30 (poster numbers 1 – 65)
  • Wed 10 April 09:15 – 10:15 (poster numbers 66 – 132)

See list of abstracts for poster numbers. Poster lightning sessions will allow for a higher number of individuals to give short (1 minute) oral presentations about their research.  All poster lead authors are requested to submit a PPT presentation, containing two slides:

  • A slide with your poster title, author names and poster number
  • A content slide related to your poster.

The content slide will advance automatically after 1 minute, so all presenters must be at the front of the room at the beginning of the session.  Lightning presentations will be done in numerical order, so you should know when your turn is coming up (pay attention as there may be a few missing numbers)!

For your 1-minute lightning presentation, give an opening statement to acquaint the audience with the nature and purpose of the study and present the most important highlights of your work. It is not necessary to repeat your name or poster title.  Use at least 24 point font, and practise beforehand with a timer so you know how much time you have.  Please send your material to Ms. Sinhae Park ( by 1 April 2019.  Late submissions will not be accepted!  Please use the following naming format:

LASTNAME-Poster#-Brief-Title.ppt  (e.g., AHN#1-GOCI-algorithm.ppt)

 Poster Viewing Sessions

In addition to the Poster Lightning Sessions, there will be three poster viewing sessions. All posters will remain up for the entire meeting.   

Presenters of all even numbered posters are requested to be on hand on Thursday (16:00 – 17:30 ) to discuss their poster with conference attendees, while all odd numbered posters are requested to present on Friday (10:15 – 11:45).  The Wednesday poster viewing session (after the poster lightening session) is open for all, so you can choose whether or not to stand by your poster.

Poster viewing times:

  • Wednesday: ~10:15 – 11:00 (with coffee)
  • Thursday: 16:00 – 17:30 (with refreshments)
  • Friday: 10:15 – 11:45 (with coffee)

 Poster Location:  Poster Area (2nd Floor, Grand Ballroom C – see Participant Guidelines)

Access for poster setup will be available from 14:00 – 19:00 on Monday, 8 April and Tuesday morning, April 9, starting at 08:00.

Poster viewing will close at 11:45 on Friday, April 12.  All posters must be removed by 14:00 that day. Any remaining posters will be stored at the IOCS Office (Studio 1), but will be discarded if not collected by 16:30.
