Urban Sound Symposium

April 3-5, 2019 in Ghent, Belgium

Contributed posters

Registered participants had the opportunity to present a poster at the conference. Posters were on display on Thursday 4 April, the whole day. Next to this, the content of each poster was presented in pitch style in front of the plenary audience. A list with all (accepted) poster contributions is shown below.

Guidelines for posters

  • For each poster, a board suitable for an A0 portrait (height 118.9 cm, width 84.1 cm) poster will be available, on which the number of the poster will be indicated. Posters can be placed on Thursday 4 April from 08:30, and should be removed by 18:30.
  • The layout and style of the poster is free.
  • The poster should at least include the title and authors matching the title and authors of the submitted abstract.
  • Near the poster area, space for laptop based presentations will be available, but you will need to bring all hardware needed if you wish to use this opportunity.

Guidelines for 2-minute pitch presentations

  • To save time between pitches, all slides will be combined into a single presentation by the conference organizers.
  • Authors should prepare 2 slides and send them to office@urban-sound-symposium.org before Monday 1 April 12:00. Slides that are not received before the deadline risk not being included in the final presentation (in which case the 2-minute pitch is cancelled).
  • The slides should be submitted in MS PowerPoint .pptx format, with a widescreen (16:9) slide size.
