Printed Posters + ePosters

Printed Posters + ePosters

At IMC 12, we are delighted to once again invite you to create a Printed Poster (to be displayed in the Poster Gallery on-site) and an ePoster (which will be available on the congress App and website).


  • Printed Poster presenters are encouraged to be in the vicinity of their poster during breaks on the day their poster is on display, in order to be available to answer questions from attendees and hold informal discussions.
  • ePoster presentations will be available for viewing on the congress app. Only ePosters of registered participants will be displayed in the ePoster Gallery.

Please see further details below about each type of poster.


Note: As a Poster presenter you will need to:

Paper Poster Instructions and Information



  • Poster Authors must bring their printed poster to the congress. There are no facilities onsite at the congress to print posters.
  • Do not leave anything on the floor near or under the poster board once it is set up. Anything on the floor is a safety hazard, and the International Mycological Congress (IMC12) and the organisers are not responsible for any resulting losses.

Authors are encouraged to stand by their posters during the breaks for informal discussions or to answer questions.



  • Display of Posters will be in daily shifts. More details will be announced in due course. The poster viewing area is located beside the Exhibition area.
  • Times of mounting and removing posters: TBA.

The organisers are not responsible for any posters that have not been removed by the end of their shift.



  • You will be sent a confirmation email with your Poster Board number (you will receive this closer to the congress). You will also be able to approach the Poster Board Help Desk on-site to ask for the board number on which you should display your poster.
  • Please use the board with the same number.



  • Poster Board orientation: PORTRAIT (VERTICAL)
  • Poster Board Size: 92 cm wide x 236 cm high
  • It is recommended that your poster be no larger than 75 cm wide x 160 cm high
  • The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two metres.
  • Select colours that provide enough contrast between the text, images and background, so that text and images are legible for anyone with low vision or colour deficiencies. Avoid green on red and red on green.
  • Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract.
  • If using QR codes, please note that they must not link to commercial content or images.
