IPC 13 Updates

Please see below for a few important updates leading up to the IPC 13 Conference (August 4-9, 2019)


The program booklet, which includes detailed schedules for each conference day and abstracts, is now available for download. If you notice any errors, please send us an e-mail and we will do our best to correct them before printing. 

Poster Dimensions

We had originally stated 44 X 44 inches as the maximum dimensions of each poster, but have increased this to 48 X 48 inches (121 X 121 cm). Our posterboards can accommodate this size. If you’ve already prepared your poster to fit in a 44 X 44 inch space, that will of course be fine.

Pins will be available for hanging posters.

Printing Posters Locally

Those of you who are presenting posters may prefer to have your them printed locally and delivered to the Queen Mary rather than to carry them during your flights. We have made arrangements with Fedex Office & Printing to do this at a substantial discount from their normal prices. For simplicity, only two sizes of posters can be accommodated using this mechanism:

36 X 48 inches – total price $49.61
48 X 48 inches – total price $66.15

When making your poster, make sure to go to Page Setup (in PowerPoint or whatever program you are using) to set the page dimensions to custom, with the width and height you have selected. When your poster is complete, save it in PDF format for mailing to Fedex. To place your printing order, e-mail Nolan Rickabaugh with a cc to Bruno Pernet, including the two items/sets of information below:

  1. Your poster, attached as a pdf file. If the file is too large to e-mail, reduce its size (in Acrobat, you can do this File: Save as other: Reduced size PDF).
  2. Payment information: your first and last name, your phone number, your e-mail address, a credit card number, its expiration date, the CVV code (the three digit security code on the reverse side), and the amount to charge to the card (either $49.61 or $66.15, depending on the size of your poster).

If you prefer not to e-mail your credit card information, you can telephone Nolan directly to convey that information to him, at 657-465-1773.

All orders must be placed by noon local time on Friday, August 2, in order for them to be produced in time for pickup on Sunday, August 4. The organizing committee will arrange for poster pickup and delivery to the Queen Mary.

Please note that the IPC13 organizing committee cannot take responsibility for the quality of the poster produced by Fedex, or with any complications you have with the order.
