International Conference on Sonar Systems & Sensors (ICONS 2018)

Instructions to Poster Presenters

Poster sessions are a good way for authors to present papers and meet with interested attendees for in-depth technical discussions. In addition, attendees find that poster sessions a good way to sample many papers in parallel. Therefore, it is important that you display your results clearly and strikingly so as to attract people who might have an interest in your paper.

You should BRING all of your PRINTED POSTER materials to the conference. Please use the template given below to create your poster. This will help create an identical appearance for all the posters. Ideally your poster should be printed on a SINGLE 30" X 42" sheet in PORTRAIT orientation. We will provide blank poster boards, pins and tapes at the conference.

Your poster should cover the KEY POINTS of your work. It should not attempt to include all the details; you can describe them to those that are interested. The ideal poster is designed to (1) attract attention; (2) provide a brief overview of your work; and (3) initiate discussion. Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible. This will save your efforts for discussions.

Carefully prepare your poster well in advance of the conference. There will be no time or materials available for last minute preparations at the conference. If you think you may need certain materials, other than tape or the poster board itself, please bring it with you. We will not be able to provide printing facility.

The title of your poster should appear at the TOP in CAPITAL letters. Below the title, put the author(s)' name(s) and affiliation(s). The flow of your poster should be downward in a single column or two columns, starting at the TOP LEFT and ending at the BOTTOM RIGHT.

You should set up your poster at least 30 minutes prior to the Poster Session. Plan to remain with the poster for the entire session and then take your materials down by end of the day, offering the space for next set of posters.

A soft copy of the final poster has to be sent to If the presenter has not sent the copy by email, they can load it at the “speakers’ ready desk”.

You are requested to STRICTLY adhere to the schedule. Under no circumstances, any author will be allowed change the sequence without the approval of the Technical Committee.
