Up Goer Five for Posters

Are you interested in science communication?  Do you want to explain your research to non-scientific audiences or people outside of your field?  Then here is your chance!  Using the incredibly successful Up Goer Five initiative, we would like to invite you to summarise the research conveyed on your poster using just 250 of the thousand most common English words.

Social Media Policy

We love social media. It is a great way to connect with people across the world, to share ideas and create collaborations. We heartily encourage people to tweet and post about their experiences.

However, we understand that some people will not want their research broadcast. We respect that, so have created a ‘do not share’ image for people to download to add to their poster/talk presentation. We expect that fellow attendees will also respect such a request. We will explain the meaning of the ‘do not share’ image on social media, our website and in the Annual Meeting printed programme. If people do not include the ‘do not share’ image on their presentation, we will assume they are happy for their research to be publicised openly.
