The abstract booklet for the 18mfm is available here.
Notes for poster-presenters: The poster displays will be set up on the evening before the 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 your 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.
It is no longer possible to book for the mfm. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries.
NB: Some of you will probably also want to stay in Manchester during the evening of Saturday (22nd May). 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 22nd, you will need to email Jill (email@example.com) by 17th May, with "Genghis Khan" in the subject line of your message.
Cancellation policy: we will endeavour to refund any fees paid if you cancel by 17th May. Any cancellations after 17th May may not able to be fully refunded as we will have committed to certain payments on your behalf.
