will be the Hulme Hall

south of the city centre and is easily accessible by public transport
or on foot. Details of how to get there are given here.
Notes for poster-presenters: The poster displays will be set up in the evening before your poster session - so please bring your poster the day before you are due to present. You will be allocated a poster board with these dimensions: 210cm high x 120cm wide. 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 (do note the dimensions of the poster board given above if you do this), 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 other conference participants walk around the displays, read your poster and ask you questions about it.
