If you are selected (our congrats!) and want to get some help with presenting your poster, we prepared some advice from participants of previous conferences:

  • poster presenting – the UKCPA requires A0 or A1 portrait format poster;
  • poster template: if you have never designed a poster before, we present here one that you can freely use if you want. Please remember that this is just an example poster, and does not represent mandatory template for UKCPA conferences. You are welcome to be creative;
  • examples of good posters: poster 1, poster 2.

*Remember to get approval from your organisations to present your work, if such is required*
