Both sessions will be held at Section 3 of IDLUGHET (EKLUTNA) EXHIBIT HALL. Each day, presenters should set up their posters between 3pm to 5pm. After the poster session each night, presenters should remove their posters. Any posters left in the poster area will be taken to registration for presenters to pick-up. Your paper is assigned a board number, which is used to locate the position of your poster. The board number can be found in the program booklet (to be distributed at the registration desk). A brief program is below and a detailed one will be available in the booklet and on the KDD website.

Poster Presentation Instructions: The board size for each poster is 4ft (width) by 4ft (height). Your posters need to fit within this area. Specific areas will be labeled in the poster session area to allow you to locate where to place your posters. If you would like to keep your posters, please ensure that you remove them at the end of the poster session each day. Otherwise, it will be discarded.

Below please find some frequently asked questions and their answers to help you prepare your poster presentation.

Q: When is the deadline for poster preparation?

A: There is no deadline. Just make sure to present your poster during the corresponding session of your poster.

Q: What is the expected size of my poster?

A: The board size for each poster is 4ft (width) by 4ft (height). The main constraint of your posters is that they should fit within that size. In other words, there is no constraint on them in terms of the orientation and size of the poster you use as long as it fits on the poster board with that size. Q: Can we glue or pin our sheet to this provided board? A: Yes. KDD will provide you with pushpins to mount the poster.

Q: How can we locate our poster board?

A: We number each board and assign each board number to each paper. You can find the information on the program booklet/KDD website.

Q: Can KDD provide sample poster template (.ppt file) for us to use?

A: There’s no template. You can use your own.
