Call for posters - Closed


Although the call for posters officially closed on 30th September, we will accept late submissions until 11th October, so you have a final chance to participate.

Submitting a poster

The poster session is designed for both students and professionals to present their research or ideas to a larger audience. Posters will be displayed for the entire period of the conference; however, each presenter will be assigned a date and time when they must be at their poster to discuss it with other participants at the conference.

Poster submissions should be on the attached form which should be emailed to archaeologyofgatherings@yahoo.com by 30th September 2013.  

A prize will be awarded for the best student/post-graduate poster.

Poster requirements

·         Posters may be produced in either landscape or portrait format, although landscape is preferred. 

·         Posters must be no larger than AO size (1189 x 841mm). We would prefer A1 size (841 x 594mm) or smaller.

·         Contributors are responsible for printing and providing their own posters for display.  Velcro adhesive pads or similar fixing materials will be provided

 Poster style guidelines

·         Posters should be clear and easy to read from a distance of 2-3 metres (minimum of 1 cm high for text and 2.5 cm high for titles).

·         Design the poster to convey a clear message. If this is not obvious to the reader after reading the introduction, the message is not clear and the reader will move on to an alternative poster, which provides the correct impact.

·         Avoid overload – too much information seriously detracts from the overall impact. Less is best!

·         The simple use of colour can enhance a presentation, but avoid the temptation towards art!

·         Consider the use of suitable photographs, but do not include as a background to the poster. Keep logos to a minimum and discrete. Proof read the poster, and get others to do so as well.
