Call for Posters

WEHC 2012 will include a poster session for PhD students and junior postdoc researchers. Posters combine text and graphics in order to communicate information and ideas, and the informal and interactive setting of the poster session makes it easy to engage people in conversation and invite feedback. The poster session offers junior researchers a great opportunity to present ongoing research to an international audience.


If you would like to have your poster printed in South Africa and delivered to the congress venue, the WEHC 2012 Secretariat can recommend the Poster-on-site printing service. They will arrange for the printing of your poster and deliver it to the congress venue for you to collect upon registration.

Please note that this service is at your own cost and you are responsible for contacting and working directly with the printing service. For more information or to order your poster, please visit
