Poster and podium presentation formats for ISG2012

The conference webpage has been updated with poster and podium presentation requirements as follows:
Posters should fit onto the display boards which are 1.8m high by 1.2m wide. Don't feel you need to fill that space as they are very big; a portrait A0 or landscape A1 poster will be fine! You are also welcome to bring a laptop or other display device to supplement your poster if you wish.
Podium presentations will be 15 minutes each. Please aim to speak for about 10 minutes, and allow 5 minutes for questions. A computer with Powerpoint and Acrobat Reader will be available.
