Poster Guidelines:

On-board posters may be prepared on one sheet (preferred method) or alternatively on several smaller sheets. Poster boards are portrait style. Maximum poster dimensions: 120cm x 90cmAllocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract. The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a two-meter (six foot) distance. Tacks will be available for the mounting of posters. There will be a Poster Helpdesk onsite to assist you.


Poster Discussion Session

We are implementing a new format for the Poster Discussion Sessions. There will be six parallel one-hour poster discussion sessions on November 19th from 13:10 to 14:10 (with six abstracts each). During the poster discussion session, the Discussant (the session leader), will speak for approximately 20-30 minutes, summarizing the content of each poster and identifying unifying themes. Following, the authors of each poster will then join the Discussant on stage for a question, answer, and discussion section with the audience. This will be highly interactive session.

Important: 

Authors are asked to provide the Discussant with 3-5 slides summarizing your work at the email following the link before October 11

The deadline for submitting your poster PDF is Monday, November 12, please follow the upload guidelines that were sent to you. 



Online Poster Preparations

Online posters must be submitted via the Congress poster uploading service.  At the beginning of August, all online poster presenters were contacted via email with their unique user name and password as well as a link to the poster uploading service

Important: Your abstract will only be shown on the Congress mobile application. It will not be a part of any other session. Do NOT bring a poster onsite, you do not have a board.
