At the conference in the catering / exhibition area there will be a board with a poster header listing your paper title for you to display your poster on.
The IET will provide Velcro to stick them to the boards.

During the breaks and at lunch time or dedicated poster session you are required to spend some time at your poster as it is your opportunity to present your work directly to other delegates.
