The poster presentations will be on continuous display throughout the conference.
  • Poster authors are responsible for printing and bringing the poster to the conference
  • Poster set-up: Each poster presenter is responsible for putting his/her poster up on a dedicated board on the first day, just after registration.
  • Poster size: The poster should not exceed A0 format (841mm x 1189 mm / 33" x 47") in portrait (vertical) layout

Authors are encouraged to:

  • Include a photo of yourselves on the poster so that you can be easily identified by the poster viewers.
  • Print several copies of their posters in A4 format and hang these up in an envelope on their designated poster board. This will make communication and future collaborations easier and more visible.
