Poster exhibition

The poster presentation is only possible in combination with registration for the congress. 

During a poster session on Wednesday, 4 December, a jury is discussing the posters. We advice the poster authors to be next to their poster for answering questions during the viewing, but the poster can be presented by an other person that was delegated by the author.

The poster has to be applied on the first day of the congress until lunch time. Pins to mount the posters will be available on-site. The poster has to be removed after the congress, we are not able to send posters to the authors after the congress.

Size of posters (portrait format):
Height: 130 cm (max.)
Width: 90 cm (max.) 

Pins will be available on the poster walls.

For questions or assistance please contact the congress organisation.

Poster award

Please note that a high class jury is going to evaluate the abstracts to select the three best posters. They will be presented on Wednesday afternoon in the auditorium. The notification in order to prepare the presentation will be sent well in advance of the congress.

The poster award ceremony takes place on Thursday at the closing session.
