Lightning talks and posters

The symposium will be structured around two interacting themes:
  1. Visualisation and biodiversity informatics
  2. Inferring evolutionary and ecological dynamics

We would like to invite delegates to present a 'lightning talk' and/or a poster. We especially welcome talks and posters from early career researchers and have financial support available.

Lightning talks will be five minute (maximum) presentations accompanied by up to five slides. Please bring your presentation on memory stick or CD/DVD.

Posters will be on display during the symposium at CSIRO Discovery. A poster session will be held during lunch on the first day of the symposium.

Poster display boards where posters will be hung are 1200mm wide x 1800mm tall. Attachment to display boards will be via “Velcro” / hook and hook-and-loop fastener – please bring the “hook” part stuck to your poster so that it can be attached to the poster display boards.

Useful sites on how to use a poster to effectively communicate your science include:


Please submit your abstracts to by 11 April 2014

Include title, author’s name, affiliation, address, email and website (if applicable). Abstract text 300 words maximum. Please remember to indicate if your abstract is for a lightning talk and/or poster.
