CALL FOR POSTERS 2023
Abstracts for Posters to be presented at the Annual Conference are requested. Submissions are invited particularly, but not exclusively, on topics related to the meeting. Posters that have been presented elsewhere will still be considered and will be eligible for the awards; only those covering work conforming to all legal and ethical requirements will be accepted.
Abstracts will be considered for publication in the LASA Forum. Abstracts should be submitted electronically online or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Closing date for Abstract submission: 7th October 2023
Acceptance will be notified by 21st October 2023
Instructions for paper-abstract submissions
Write the title in capital letters. The text must be to a maximum of 400 words (including title, author/s and address), single spaced, point size 10, and can contain one table or figure only. References should be written as surname, initials, year (in brackets), journal name in full, volume, and pages. The whole abstract must be written within the box frame. The authors of the poster should be quoted by initial/s, name & address.
In order that the abstracts and poster session attract interest from the widest range of scientific delegates attending the conference, the panel of judges may request clarification or minor editorial redrafting, prior to publication within the Conference handbook.
Poster size and file formats accepted. Poster size is standard A0 (841 x 1189 mm). Portrait is preferred to landscape profile. In order that successfully submitted posters can be published in the LASA Forum or posted on the LASA website after the event, the following electronic format is advised:
- PDF (Adobe Portable Document Format) file. This is the preferred file format, especially if the poster file was created under other computer platforms apart from Windows. Please also make sure that the size of the poster is set to the correct required size.
- Microsoft Word. Please embed all picture files, figures and graphs in the documents. This is to prevent any images missing when printing. Also use high quality pixel pictures and figures etc. if possible so that the images, when printed out, do not become blurred. You can view the actual size of the poster and check all the images under Print Preview option.
- Microsoft PowerPoint. Please embed all picture files, figures and graphs in the documents. This is to prevent any images missing when printing. Also use high quality pixel pictures and figures etc. if possible so that the images, when printed out, do not become blurred. You can view the actual size of the poster and check all the images under Print Preview option.
