Papers submission update

General guidelines: 

Please submit final works by email to papers@e-wasteafrica.org. See Details Below.

– Artistry does not substitute for content. The relevance of the poster to field Chemistry should be apparent to viewers.

–Think of the raw layout of your poster beforehand. Place the title at the top. Start with the Introduction at the upper left, finish with the recommendations at the lower right, with methods and results filling the central space. Use short sentences, simple words, and bullets to illustrate your points.

Text should be broken up by including graphics or photos. Self-explanatory graphics should dominate the poster. The success of a poster directly relates to the clarity of your illustrations and tables! Avoid using jargon, acronyms, or unusual abbreviations. Use a non-serif font (e.g., Arial) for the poster. The poster (text and graphics) should be easily readable from a distance of about 2 metres. As a thumb rule, the text should be readable if the poster is printed out on an A4 sheet (e.g. Arial >24 points).

• Title: Title should be in large fonts (e.g. Arial >80 points) and attract potential viewers. If possible, institute logos or affiliations should be minimised in size and put in the lower corner of the poster, or, alternatively, next to the title.

• Introduction: Get your viewer interested about the issue or question while using the absolute minimum of background information and definitions. Put the objectives of your study at the end of your introduction.

• Methods and Materials: Be short, but precise. State what study design you used and define your study population. Provide a case definition, if applicable. Mention statistical, laboratory and other methods that were used.

• Results: Briefly provide descriptive results (response rate, age and sex distribution). Present data that more specifically addresses the hypothesis and refer to supporting charts or images. Tables and graphs should stand on their own.

– A minimal amount of text materials should supplement the graphic materials. Use regions of empty space between poster elements to differentiate and accentuate these elements.

Graphic materials should be readable at a distance of 1.5-2.0 metres. The font size should be at least 1 cm high. Lines in illustrations should be larger than normal. Use colours for emphasis, but do not overuse (2-3 colours are usually enough).

Avoid using patterns or open bars in histograms. Remove all non-essential information from graphs and tables (data curves not discussed by the poster; excess grid lines in tables). Graphics and tables should have a complete title and legend.

• Conclusion and recommendations: Comment on main results and discuss why they are conclusive and interesting. Discuss potential biases. What are your recommendations?

• Acknowledgments/further information: Thank individuals for specific contributions to project; mention who has provided funding. Provide your e-mail address for further information.

Making the poster – POSTER Presentation

• Preparing a poster takes time. Plan for a minimum of one week.
• Usually a presentation software such as PowerPoint will be used. Format your PowerPoint slide on the size you’ll like to have it printed (ex 90×130 cm) by using the menu data -> format page. You can insert your text and graphics directly on that slide or copy-paste it from a Word document or a PowerPoint slide.
• Print the poster in an A4 format to check for layout, colours, font size and spelling errors before printing it in large size.
• After the poster is printed in large format, changes are no longer possible.
• It is often useful to make a handout of your poster for distribution during the poster session.

Accepted Size of Poster is size A1 (59.4cm x 84.1cm). Only 1 poster page per article. Any poster that is not the right size will not be displayed and presented.

Presentation cost is N4000.00.

Please pay into the CSN account and keep your evidence which must be shown to the Session manager, LOC Chair or SPC Chair

PLEASE SEND A COPY OF YOUR POSTER AS PDF ATTACHMENT to papers@e-wasteafrica.org on or before the 20th of October 2021. No late poster will be presented, please take note.

 

Making the slide – ORAL Presentations

The time allocated for a presentation is 10 minutes, with a further 5 minutes allowed for discussion. Think in terms of the following:
1. Observe the time limits conscientiously
2. Have a title slide with authors or presenters names, title of presentation and what the paper or presentation is all about
3. The second slide should have the hypothesis under investigation
4. Have 2 slides covering your current research plan and literature review
5. The maximum of slides should be10 – this would mean talking to each slide for only one minute.
6. It is generally distracting to the audience to have too many slides in a short presentation
7. Do not put too much text on a slide – you want the audience to listen to you and not to be reading your slides!
Authors’ guide for the book of proceedings
1. The paper should be an original research article
2. It should have components such as title, abstract, brief introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion and major references.
3. The full paper must not exceed 5 A4 pages, News Times Roman font size 12.
4. Diagrams and tables should be used as much as possible to minimize the number of words.
5. Presentation cost is N4000 please.

ORAL Presentation cost is N4000.00. Please pay into the CSN account and keep your evidence which must be shown to the Session manager, LOC Chair or SPC Chair. Your Maximum 5 page article for the proceeding can be sent to papers@e-wasteafrica.org IMMEDIATELY AFTER PRESENTATION .

Your presentation will not be scheduled and will not appear in the proceedings, If payment for presentation is not received before 25th October 2021.
