For one evening only the posters will be displayed in the meeting room at the headquarters of ICMS, 14 India Street, the birthplace of James Clerk Maxwell. This is approximately 10 minutes' walk from the Royal Society. Those wishing to set up their posters during the day can do so any time after 11.00 on Monday 21 March. Posters should be A0 size maximum (we will provide the appropriate materials for attaching them to the poster-boards). Please note that we would like the owners of the posters to take them away at the end of the evening. There will be a Reception with wine during the Poster Session to which all are most cordially invited. Do come - the more the merrier.
