[Closed] Call for Abstracts (MES 2017)

Poster Presentations

It is very common at conferences to have a section for posters. Although these are sometimes called poster presentations, you do not have to give a speech. Instead you should be available to stand next to your poster and be ready to talk about your work if any conference attendees have questions.

 The following rules must be followed to allow us to physically mount the posters: Posters must be A1 size, portrait orientation. There is a template that must be used:

The poster presenters can find useful guidance in the following file:

Poster deadline

 The deadline for submitting an abstract (in pdf format) is well in advance of the conference date: June 9th of June at noon.

The deadline of the poster electronic submission (in pdf format) is the 21st of June at noon.

·         Send your poster to uclmexsoc@gmail.com.

Students of any University are welcome to take part in this event.

We will display the posters in the Main Quad Pavilion space from the morning of the conference throughout the day & evening. We may ask for some help to attach the posters to the boards.


Poster Guidelines

 When you’re writing your poster, remember the aim is to convey the impact of your research to a wide audience: why is it important? How will it change the world?

 Posters are judged on the following criteria:

 ·         Visual appeal (would it catch your eye on a billboard?)

·         Importance of the work (is this work changing the world?)

·         Personal contribution (are you impressed with how much the person has done?)

·         Those presenters who have posters: Please attend the foyer during break sessions, help yourself to refreshments and view the other posters, but please spend some time near your own poster so that you can talk to anyone who is interested in your work. Remember that the MES 2017 brings together an audience with a wide variety of backgrounds so you should be ready to describe your work at different complexity levels.

¡Muchas gracias por participar!

  • Hello,

    I’m writing to ask about the call for abstracts for the upcoming Mexico Energy Summit. I was told to email you expressing my interest despite the tardiness in my query. If it’s still possible to submit one, I’d like to do so. I’d also like to know if it’s ok to place the logos of the organisations enabling my PhD (University of Oxford, the Department of Materials, the Fusion CDT and CONACYT) between those of the UCL Mexican Society and UCLU.

    • Hello, Daniel.

      We’ve followed your query and we can offer you the chance to send an abstract to the email above. Please send an abstract as soon as you can, since we are going to start sending the acceptance letters very soon. As for the logos, you can put your own logos as well.

      Looking forward to seeing you in London!
