Abstracts & Posters

Deadline: Midnight (GMT) Sunday 15th November 2015

Online abstract submission is now closed

Several of the best submitted abstracts will be selected for oral presentations throughout the conference. If your abstract is selected, you will be required to register for the conference as a paying delegate. You will ALSO present your work during the poster session (in addition to the opportunity to present it orally).

The goal of the abstract submissions and poster presentations at the Advances Against Aspergillosis (AAA) meeting is to present new data in the broad field of Aspergillus research and care.

An abstract already presented at an international meeting, with no updates or additional analyses, will not be accepted at AAA. Data already presented at a smaller national or regional meeting will be considered for acceptance. If an abstract already presented at an international meeting that has been updated or more recently analysed is submitted, then we (the Scientific Committee) will consider acceptance.

Posters: Guidelines and Instructions

  • The maximum dimensions for posters are:

    Width: 110 cm (1100 mm)
    Depth: 150 cm (1500 mm)

    If you are producing your poster to a specific paper size:
    A1 size will fit in both landscape and portrait formats.
    A0 will fit but ONLY in portrait.

  • Please adhere to these size restrictions as this allows for the maximum number of posters, as well as continuous display throughout the conference.

  • Poster numbers will be posted on each board.

  • At registration, you will be provided with instructions on your poster location, as well as a number. The number will be on the poster board assigned to your poster. Posters should be mounted on the assigned board.

  • Posters may be put up from 08.00 on Thursday 3rd March and MUST be removed by 16.45 on Saturday 5th March. Any posters left behind will be thrown away.

  • We recommend that you prepare the following labels for the top of your poster space. These should have bold lettering which is visible and 1” high (minimum) indicating:

    1. The title of your paper
    2. The author(s)

  • Please do not mount illustrations on heavy board because this will make it difficult to keep in position on the poster board. The poster boards are covered in a polyweave fabric designed to hold Velcro hooks. Blu-tack must NOT be used.

  • Your illustration may be viewed at distances as far as 3 feet or more. We recommend that lettering should be at least 3/8 inches high, preferably in a typed and easy to read bold font.
