  10. A visit to CERN

  11. Students lectures and poster sessions
    The students will be invited to prepare short presentations of their work; a Poster session will allow more detailed presentation of their individual work.
    Posters can be prepared in A0 format but the size of the panels will be 120 cm wide by 130 cm high. The format should be relatively free, please check with your supervisor that he is happy with it and make sure you fulfill your collaborators/collaborations constraints.
    Please write in large fonts the title of your poster, your name and institute, make sure you refer to your collaborators appropriately. Posters should have the INSS11 banner on them preferably above the title.
    The most important messages should be about mid height or higher on the poster. Reserve the bottom of the poster for less important details (references, etc...)
    If you need your poster printed: please make sure to send us the file or a link to the .pdf file by 12 July the latest.
