Poster presentation is particularly well suited to material with a strong visual impact. Posters are displayed prominently throughout the meeting and during the week there will be a dedicated session, giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors. An extended abstract will be published in the conference papers to provide a permanent record and point of contact. A pdf-format file of your copyright-cleared poster would also be welcome at a later stage to enable display on the IIC website.
If you would like to present a poster, please use this link: http://www.iiconservation.org/conferences/vienna2012/send_abstract.php . The deadline for electronic submission of proposals is 3 February 2012. The total word count will be 800. The choice of posters for display will be made by 2 March 2012 and final texts and image will be required by 30 March 2012.

Call for Student Posters
IIC is delighted to announce that the 2012 IIC Vienna Congress will continue the innovative Student Poster Session, first run as a part of the 2010 Istanbul Congress. The aim of this session is to provide a peer-reviewed platform for research and work on conservation projects being undertaken by students and emerging conservators. This is an opportunity for those who are starting out in the conservation arena to take part in conservation’s international showcase. Student Posters will be displayed prominently throughout the meeting and, as with the main poster session, there will be a programmed session giving delegates the opportunity to speak to poster authors. A pdf-format file of your copyright-cleared poster would also be welcomed at a later stage to enable display on the IIC web-site. The abstracts are not published in the preprints of the conference however.
We invite current students and recent graduates to submit proposals for inclusion at the 2012 IIC Congress. If you would like to present a poster, please send your provisional summary of the poster content (200-800 words, one image may be included) to firstname.lastname@example.org by 3 March 2012. The choice of posters for display will be made by 5 May 2012 and final texts will be required by 30 June 2012. The proposal and abstract submission guidelines can be downloaded from here.
