Instructions for Poster Presenters



Instructions for Preparing Posters for Short Papers

For several years, the LCN conference has successfully offered a track of short papers. The presentation of short papers will be done in a poster style. The LCN conference program will offer a dedicated poster session on Tuesday October 16 in the afternoon — the first main conference day (without any other sessions in parallel).

During this session, all authors of short papers are expected to set up a poster giving information about the contents of the paper. The poster presenter will be able to receive direct feedback during the whole poster session within explaining the paper topics to the audience visiting the poster stand, answering questions and/or being involved in vivid discussions!

The recommended sizes for posters are ISO-A1 (594 mm x 841 mm), ANSI D (22" x 34") or Arch D (24" x 36"). Posters should be designed in Portrait format (short edge horizontal).

(Posters up to ISO-A0 (841 mm x 1189 mm, or 33.1" x 46.8") size can be accommodated).

(The recommendation of poster sizes also applies for short/poster papers of the accompanying workshops of LCN.)

Poster Print and Pick-Up Service in Dublin (optional)

To support people traveling from overseas and who are usually subject to carryon luggage restrictions, the Local Arrangements chair has arranged for poster printing and pick-up service in Ireland.

  1. The author produces a PDF of his poster in ISO-A1 size. (Data in other formats, such as 22x34 or 24x36 inch will be slightly scaled to the next matching paper width from the roll.)

    It is the author's responsibility to produce a PDF with high enough resolution of all graphical elements, and with all fonts embedded.

  2. The author sends his PDF via email, or provides a HTTP address for download, quoting LCN2007 in the subject line, to:

    Cantec Waterford,
    Attn: Paula Guiry
    email: Design
    phone: +353-51-337012
    fax: +353-51-333085
    For counting purposes, a CC of this email should be sent to the Local Arrangements chair.

    Optional, the author might send a TIFF file downscaled to A4 or Letter format, which the Local Arrangements chair use for proofing purposes.

    Data deadline: Monday morning, 01 October, 9:00 am GMT

  3. The author will pay Cantec Waterford directly by sending credit card details via fax, phone or email, to Cantec only.

    The agreed price is, including VAT (tax):

    LCN2007 Print+Pickup ISO-A1, glossy:69.00 EUR
    matt:65.00 EUR

  4. The Local Arrangements chair will collect the printed posters on Friday 05 Oct, check for clean print, do common-sense comparison with the proof, if available, and carry the posters to the conference.

  5. For printing, the terms & conditions of Cantec apply. For collection and transport, the Local Arrangements chair provides a personal favour, not a commercial service. Therefore, he will take best effort care, but accept no liability except in cases of gross negligence. In any case liability is limited to the price of the poster.
