A poster is a short, concise, highly accessible description of new, unpublished research mounted on a poster stand for public viewing. Posters typically include not only text (approx. 2,000 words), but also graphs, photographs, and charts. Posters should be no bigger than 120 cm in width x 150 cm in height. Posters may address topics specifically connected to the conference seminars, round tables, and lectures, or any other specialised topic in the field of English Studies. The aim of a poster session is to provide conference participants, and poster presenters in particular, with additional opportunities for discussion and feedback about research in an informal setting.

Therefore, presenters are strongly encouraged to be present during the poster session and to have handouts available for distribution. Poster proposals should include the name and affiliation of the presenter and a clearly titled abstract of no more than 200 words (not including title). Note that posters will not be displayed if the presenter does not attend the conference.

Proposals should be sent directly to the Academic Programme Committee at by 28 February 2016.
