Call for Posters
article posted 18 Apr 2015

We invite you to submit material for our ePoster session, which will run throughout the three days of the presentation programme.

Rather than the traditional cardboard panels on display boards, we plan to use a projector to present the poster information electronically on a continuous basis - hence the description 'ePoster'.

ePoster material will also be available to all delegates throughout the conference via smartphones, tablets or laptops, and will be prominently advertised. It will also be available on the conference website after the conference is over.

Please click these images to see a full-screen versions. These are examples of the kind of format which might be used, but as with any PowerPoint presentation there are no rigid format requirements. Authors have scope for flexibility in presenting their material to best advantage.

ePosters are we think an ideal medium for sharing ideas and information, for stimulating useful discussion and for making contact with fellow glass enthusiasts.

The way this works is as follows:

If you would like to submit an ePoster please email your material in any convenient format - for example a PowerPoint presentation, a .pdf document, or a set of images in .jpg or .png format.

Slide images should be about 1000 pixels wide. Any questions or difficulties, please get in touch using the email address below.

Please email your ePoster as an attachment to
