Accepted Poster Guidelines

You are asked to follow these guidelines when submitting an abstract for poster presentation:

Poster BOARD dimensions = 1 m wide x 2.25 m high (this measure is not the poster, but the POSTER BOARD).

Posters should be clear and easy to read. Type size should be sufficiently large to allow people to read from 2-3 meters. (Minimum of 1 cm high for text and 2.5 cm high for titles). DO NOT REDUCE TEXT SIZE IN ORDER TO FIT MORE INFORMATION ONTO THE POSTER.

Call for Papers


Abstracts for contributed oral and poster presentations to be presented at IBC Floripa 2010 can be submitted online from 8 February 2010 until 7 May 2010 inclusive

The mission of the IBS  is “to promote the development and application of statistical and mathematical theory and methods in the biosciences, including agriculture, biomedical science and public health, ecology, environmental sciences, forestry, and allied disciplines”. Contributions at the conference are therefore welcome across a wide range of both methodological topics and application areas relevant to the mission of the IBS. 

The following lists provide an indication of the areas that have been covered at previous conferences, but these should not limit what you submit.

All abstracts must be submitted online and prepared using the Word or Latex templates which can be downloaded from this web-page.

Each abstract submission must include the title, list of authors and author affiliations, and abstract (as indicated in the template), with each submission having a maximum length of one page of A4 using the fonts specified in the templates.  Authors will select from a list of possible session topics (related to the list given above).

All submitted abstracts will be reviewed by the scientific committee for the conference, and presenting authors will be informed of the status of their abstract (oral session, poster session, rejection) by July 2010.

All contributed oral presentations will be allocated to a 15-minute slot within a particular scientific session, with each session lasting 105 minutes and therefore containing 6 oral presentations and time for discussion.  All contributed poster presentations will also be allocated to a particular scientific session throughout which it is expected that the presenting author will be present at their poster.

All presenting authors must have registered for the IBC by 30 September 2010 for their abstract to be included in the programme.

Following on from the success of the awards made at the last two IBC, we will again be awarding prizes for the Best Student Oral Presentation(s) and the Best Poster Presentation(s).
