  • Figures and tables can be included in black and white or colour (preferred). Captions should be placed below in single spacing
  • Footnotes should use consecutive numbers and placed in brackets, eg (i)
  • Ensure references are numbered in the order in which they appear in the text, at the end of the manuscript, e.g. [1]
  • Commercialism in text and/or figures and tables must be avoided

Save the manuscript with the electronic file name ‘paper number _ author surname’ for example ‘WP22123_Smith’. The paper number refers to the number sent to you in your confirmation of acceptance email in February.

Posters should be fixed to the boards with strong double-sided tape, which will be provided in the poster area, on Sunday afternoon, or on Monday Morning and must remain in position throughout the event.

It is your opportunity to present your poster during the Poster & Networking time. It is suggested that you can be available during this time to answer any questions relating to your poster(s) from delegates. You might like to display your mobile phone number and email address, to enable interested delegates to make contact during the event; not forgetting Twitter and LinkedIn information if you wish.

In addition, delegates will be able to send you a message through the networking function of the World PM2022 mobile app if they have additional questions or would like to discuss your presentation further. Remember to bring plenty of business cards with you; these can be placed in an envelope underneath your poster.

If you wish to retain your poster, you must remove it after 17:00 on Friday.
