Thank you all for submitting your abstracts. The deadline has now passed and we are not accepting any more abstracts.


Please download the abstract instructions here: PCNSW_Conf 2018_Call For Abstracts

Oral presentations will be 20 minute presentations including questions. 


SIZE: Posters should be directly printed onto an ‘Ao’ PORTRAIT SHEET – 841mm wide x 1189mm high

Posters larger than this will exceed the display board size (Note: consider preparing the poster initially in an A4 format and then get a commercial copy centre to copy and resize to Ao size).

FORMAT: Poster presentations MUST be in PORTRAIT format, to ensure they fit on the poster boards provided.

TITLE: Main poster title should be at least 48 points or larger

OTHER TEXT: Text in the body of the poster should be at least 22-26pts or larger.

CONTENT: Use these tips to help develop a great poster. The poster should:

  • Be a visual representation of your submitted abstract
  • Be self-explanatory in the event you are not there to explain the content
  • Include an introduction, body and a list of conclusions
  • Make the flow of information explicit and easy for the eye to follow eg. Organise poster in columns running down the poster rather than in rows
  • Use short sentences
  • Not be loaded with large amounts of data, methodology or reference lists
  • Have short titles for each illustration

HANDOUTS: We recommend that authors prepare articles or handouts to give to interested delegates. Alternatively have a sheet for people to submit their names and email addresses to send them a copy when they return home. You may also wish to provide your contact details, so those interested can follow up any queries they have at a later date.

DISPLAYING POSTERS: Posters will be randomly selected to be displayed on either Friday 9th or Saturday 10th. You will be advised shortly as to which day your poster will be displayed. When arriving at the registration table you will be given your number for your poster. Please locate the corresponding number on the poster boards and affix your poster to it.  We will provide you with double sided Velcro to attach to boards. Should you require assistance please see a staff member at the registration desk.

JUDGING: We have assembled a judging panel to assess your posters and will give prizes to 1st 2nd and 3rd placed posters.

POSTER REMOVAL: All posters must be taken down by 6pm on the day of display.

If you require more information on preparing your poster, please send an email to info@palliativecarensw.org.au
