Poster Presenters

The poster session is scheduled for Wednesday, September 25, 6:30 – 7:30pm. Please note, that the poster session is preceded by a one-hour Poster Introduction Session starting at 5:10pm. In this session each presenter has 5 minutes time to present the important point of his poster supported by 1-2 slides.  The poster viewing for the participants will directly follow. Presenters are kindly asked to be present for the duration of the poster presentation session.

Please bring your printed poster to the conference. The format should be A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm, portrait style). There is no template for the poster, but please try to be simple and direct in your presentation. Use short phrases and “bulleted” text throughout and avoid long narrative paragraphs.
