Extend the life of your poster
The Thoracic Society of Australia and New Zealand (TSANZ) in cooperation with Faculty of 1000 (http://f1000.com/) invites poster presenters at TSANZ meetings to deposit their poster(s) following the meetings into the new open access poster repository, F1000 Posters (http://posters.f1000.com/) enabling those who could not make the meeting to see the novel work presented. F1000's expert Faculty of ~10,000 members will then view these submissions to identify those they wish to select for positive evaluation in the award winning F1000 post-publication peer review service.

If you're looking to step into a world of awe-inspiring beauty and discover experiences found nowhere else on earth, come to Perth. Australia's sunniest capital city, Perth enjoys 3000 hours of sunshine a year - no wonder it's been voted one of the world's most liveable cities. All the essential ingredients for a great time - some of the country's best beaches, plenty of nightlife, bustling markets, inner city parks, outdoor dining and amazing marine adventures. The line-up of water-based fun includes boating, fishing and all dialogues of surfing. Endless beaches stretch from Perth's famous Cottesloe Beach up the coast towards Lancelin - Western Australia's windsurfing and sandboarding mecca.
Inland lies the sweeping Swan Valley - a showcase for local produce, including premium wineries and art galleries. Travel further east and you're into the forested Darling Range, the banks of the Avon Valley and the historic towns of York and Toodyay - packed with galleries, craft shops, cafes and heritage museums. For something unique visit New Norcia, Australia's only monastic town. Within day trip distance of Perth, this area is a tranquil contrast to city life, and you'll want to stay longer.
We look forward to seeing you in Perth in April 2011.
