Guidelines for poster authors


Posters form an important and integral role in our Technical Conferences. It is an opportunity for researchers to report on ‘late breaking’ work and for them to interact directly with delegates, but it is also an indicator for where research is heading in the future for the industry. Twelve of the poster abstracts were selected for formal presentation within the ‘Fresh science’ sessions to be held from 4.30 – 6pm on Tuesday 26 July and 8.30 – 10am on Thursday 28 July in Halls LM. The posters also provide a forum for students to present their work.

There will be 190 posters on display in Foyer F, ground level of the Adelaide Convention Centre. The posters will be available for viewing at all times from Sunday morning (24 July) to Thursday afternoon (28 July); poster authors will be asked to be in attendance to answer any questions that delegates might have regarding the information presented on Wednesday 27 July from 10.30 – 11.30am (even numbered posters) and 12 – 1pm (odd numbered posters).

Listed below are the groups within which the posters will be displayed:

Clarification and maturation
Grape and wine aroma, flavour and colour
Grape and wine business
Grapevine management and physiology
Information and technology transfer
New vineyard and winery technologies
Pests and vine disease
Phenolics in red wine
Soil and irrigation management
Viticulture and the environment

The Australian Wine Research Institute, Wine Innovation Cluster, Metabolomics Australia and Chr Hansen will award cash prizes for the best posters; AWITC is sponsoring a ‘people’s choice’ poster prize; and the Australian Society for Viticulture and Oenology will award cash prizes to the best two presenters in the Fresh science sessions. The winners will be announced on Thursday 28 July at the end of Session 11.
