Notes for poster-presenters: The poster displays will be set up on the evening before the relevant poster session. You will have a space of about 5' (wide) x 3'9" (high) (152 cm wide x 114 cm high) for your poster. Each person presenting a poster will be provided with the means to affix their posters to the display board. Please feel free to bring handouts with you, so that those viewing your poster also have something to take away. Posters in previous years have taken a wide variety of forms, and there is no one single way to produce a good poster; the important things are that the font size is not too small, that it is easily readable and does not have too much text on it, that it sets out the main points that you want to argue for clearly, and maybe that it's eye catching, too. Some presenters bring one big poster which takes up all the space, others bring a series of A3 or A4 sheets of paper which can be fitted together on the poster board. During the poster session, you will be asked to stand by your poster (for at least a fair amount of the session) as conference participants walk around the displays, read your posters and ask you questions about them.
No more bookings can now be taken. If you would like to attend the 17mfm and have not booked, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
All participants in the conference (apart from the invitees in the special session) need to book, and payment should be made before the conference.
The conference fee does not cover accommodation, which you will need to book yourself (please use the information on the accommodation page [link removed] to make your own arrangements).
Some of you will probably also want to stay in Manchester during the evening of Saturday (30th). For those that do, it might be nice to meet up for a post-conference meal. Jill Beckman has kindly agreed to organise a trip to a restaurant for the Saturday evening - this will be to the Genghis Khan's Mongolian barbecue restaurant in the centre of Manchester. If you would like to come along to the meal on the 30th, you will need to email Jill (email@example.com) by 22nd May, with "Genghis Khan" in the subject line of your message.
Detailed information on accommodation possibilities and on how to get to the conference (with a selection of maps) are provided on separate pages:
A special themed session has been organised for Friday afternoon by members of the organising committee and the advisory board. This will feature invited contributions and will conclude in an open discussion session when contributions from the audience will be very welcome. Unfortunately, Morris Halle has had to cancel his participation in the conference.
