Poster Abstract Submission

The Conference Scientific Committee of the EMDR invites you and your colleagues to present your work in research and teaching at the Poster Session during the EMDR Europe Workshop Conference.

Presenting a poster is a great way to get feedback on work that has not yet been published. Poster presentations will be an integral part of the conference, with sessions for interactive discussion between presenters and attendees for at least two days. Note that, in order to maintain interactive and exciting poster presentations, we require at least one presenter per accepted poster to attend the conference.

The instructions for abstract submission are identical for poster presentations. Please use this Microsoft Word Poster Abstract Template , rename it as EMDR2019_name_ type of presentation.docx (name = presenting author name, type of presentation = poster, e.g. EMDR2019 _author_poster.docx) and follow the instructions given below.

For your poster presentation you will be able to set up your poster on Saturday morning from 8 am. Posters will be exhibited for the duration of the Conference. Your presence at your poster board is requested between 12.30-14.00 hrs on Saturday and Sunday and between 16.00-16.30 hrs on Saturday.

Some basic rules regarding your poster presentation

  • The basic rule is to provide a short, clear, non-technical description of what you did, why you did it, and what you found. Generally, you should not go into detail regarding subjects, apparatus, or details of procedure. Thus, a poster is not just a regular paper in large type stuck on a board. It is a discussion-oriented format. The poster should communicate the issue and conclusion. The discussion in person with conference delegates should fill in the details.
  • All materials you wish to display should be related to your presentation and the materials described in the abstract you submitted to the EMDR Europe Conference Scientific Committee.
  • As a general rule, it is recommended that the title be in 3 cm print or larger. The authors and the affiliations can be done in 1.5 cm print. It is not a good idea to include any display materials done in regular size type e.g. 12 point. Instead, you may wish to include an abstract typed in a large, clear type and several large, clearly labeled graphs and other visual aids.
  • Figures that take up a regular page are probably adequately large, but even larger materials would be desirable. If tables are included, they should probably be larger than a standard sheet of paper. Pictures, diagrams, and other materials of adequate size are often helpful. A useful rule here is that your material should be easily read from a distance of 1 to 2 meters.
  •  The poster should be as neat and visually pleasing as possible. Hand lettering of materials is generally not satisfactory. The creative use of colors in lettering background and figures can add considerably to poster appeal.
  • Many presenters may wish to provide handouts about their project. These may include an abstract of the paper or perhaps a copy of the complete paper itself. Other authors prefer to send reprints of their paper by email after the conference is over and provide “reprint-request” sheets.
