scissors and glue. Despite the cost, we strongly recommend that you have them
laminated to avoid tearing.
3. We recommend that you also bring a document wallet in which to place your
handouts. The wallet can stand below your poster and your handouts can be
taken by interested parties throughout the conference. Abundant feedback and
personal contacts are strengths of the poster format, so you should provide an
e-mail address in the handout for those who want to contact you later.
4. Posters for IGALA6 will be mounted with material supplied, but if you want to
use your poster for future conferences, veterans recommend fitting your poster
with metal rings to facilitate hanging.

Monday afternoon) and a dedicated poster session has been timetabled in the
program during which you should be available to answer questions.

interest to the conference themes. Workshops will be scheduled into 90 minute
slots in the regular program.
