Poster Session

The HILDA Research Survey Conference will be running a dedicated Poster Session where research can be visually presented to conference delegates.

The posters will be on display for the entire conference with a $500AUD award for the Best Poster. The winner will be determined by the conference steering committee. All posters need to make use of HILDA Survey data.

Please see below for poster presentations:


Size: Posters must be no larger than 1.8m high by 1.2m wide.
Labels: Please include names and affiliations on posters.
Mounting: Velcro, pushpins, or thumbtacks will be provided to presenters.


Content: Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Make sure every item included in your poster is necessary.
Data: Data should be kept to a minimum in favour of diagrams and photographs. If relevant, methods should be presented simply and concisely.
Legibility: All text lettering should be large enough to be legible at a distance of 1.5m. Text should be concise and easy to read.
Try to avoid the use of acronyms, jargon, and abbreviations.
Handouts:  We encourage you to print some A4 handouts of your poster (including contact details) for delegates to take.

Posters can be brought in on the day or delivered to the Melbourne Institute office prior to the Conference. Presenters will be able to set up their poster the morning of the conference.

Costs associated with creating and shipping the poster display will be the responsibility of the presenter.
