Poster Solicitation and Information

All participants are encouraged to prepare and bring a poster to the Workshop. Posters will be on display for the entire Workshop period and provide participants an excellent opportunity for networking. The poster session will allow participants an opportunity to present additional new ideas to those interested. As with the session discussions, the poster session will be conducted off the record to encourage frank discussion and presentation of unconfirmed or partial results. Presentations on both research and field experience are solicited.


The Workshop Programme Committee has a stated policy against the use of commercial trade names, company logos, or language that is commercial in tone.
Note that the Workshop Programme Committee will review all posters prior to display, and reserves the right to refuse permission to display any poster considered by the committee to be commercial in nature.

The poster display should be designed for eye-level viewing and made from simple graphic materials. Size of the poster board will be advised at a later time. The poster display may include printed materials, tables, graphs, photographs, or illustrations. All the materials should be of sufficient size so as to be easily read and should be prepared in a manner that will accomplish the following:

    • Poster size should be approximately 0.8m x 1.2m (W x H) or size A0 in portrait layout.
    • Identify topic by title, presenter, affiliation, address, and phone number.
    • Include a brief abstract that summarises the technology to be addressed.
    • Make the display as self-explanatory as possible.
    • Place the information sequentially; beginning with the main idea or problem, method used, result, etc. (Draw a plan keeping the size and number of illustrations in mind).
    • Keep illustrations simple by using charts, graphs, drawings, and pictures to create interest and visually explain a point.
    • Use contrasting colours.
    • Use large print for narrative materials. (We suggest a minimum of 24 points or 3" high letters for the title).

    Whether or not you elect to participate in the poster session or have been invited by the Programme Committee to present during one of the regular sessions, please come prepared to participate actively in the discussions. Open interaction is encouraged. With the full cooperation and participation of all attendees, we anticipate an outstanding Workshop.


    If you are interested in participating, please provide the topic with a short abstract maximum 300 words of the proposed poster to the SPE Asia Pacific Office (Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia), address as indicated below by 21 August.

    Please email your abstract by 21 August to:
