About Poster Presentation

Posters will be numbered and listed in the Congress Programme. The poster area will be located in a designated area at the congress venue.

Date & Time: Mount your poster on your assigned board on Monday, September 11th between 08:00 -11:00hrs. Posters should be in place for the whole duration of the Congress. Poster material must be removed on Wednesday, September 13th between 16:00 -18:00hrs. After this hour the Congress Secretariat has no responsibility for your poster.

Poster Material: The poster surface area is 120 cm high and 80 cm width. You will find on the bottom of your poster space a label, indicating your Poster Number. Material for mounting posters (double sided Scotch tape and pins) will be available by the Congress Secretariat. 

Text and illustration layout: All illustrations must be prepared beforehand. Remember that your illustrations must be read by interested scientists from a distance of about one meter or more. Charts, drawings and illustrations may be similar to those you would otherwise use in making slides; i.e. preferably simple with well-defined lines. They need not to be «arty». Simple use of colour can effectively add emphasis. Do not use heavy illustration material because it may be difficult to be kept in position on the poster board. Please do not write or draw on the Poster Boards.


Abstracts Guidelines
  • Authors assume complete responsibility for the data at the time of submission.
  • The abstract must contain original work. If the abstract was published or presented at a meeting of another national or international scientific organization, it must contain all citations.
  • Abstracts are expected to be approved or exempted by the appropriate Institutional Review Board (IRB) with jurisdiction or equivalent if any human subjects or any human materials were utilized.
  • Commercial and financial relationships, that represent potential conflicts, must be disclosed through the online Abstract Submission program. Include each authors’ first name, initial, last name, degree(s), and email address on their disclosure page.
  • An author on multiple abstracts need only complete one disclosure. All author names should be included at the time of submission. IFFS is not responsible for missing, excluded, or misspelled names that the submitting author leaves off or misspells during the submission process. All author names will be printed in the Abstract Supplement exactly how they are entered into the system by the submitting author.

  • Accepted abstracts will be published in the IFFS Journal: Global Reproductive Health.

All abstracts should be submitted and presented in English, which is the official language of the conference, using accurate grammar and spelling suitable for publication. If in doubt, please arrange for the review of your abstract by a native English speaker or by a university scientific publications office (or other similar facility) prior to submission, as it will be reproduced exactly as submitted. No proofreading will be done.
