Instructions for Poster Presenters

Poster presenters are requested to prepare their poster in 2 formats – a physical poster that they need to bring onsite in Barcelona, and an e-Poster in .pdf format. The poster presenters do not have to choose one of the formats, but need to prepare both. Detailed instructions on how to prepare your files are available below.

  • Please use the board with the same number.


Poster viewings and discussions are held during the official program coffee and lunch breaks each day, as well as during the Welcome Reception.

Authors are kindly requested to stand by their poster to answer questions, however, you are also welcomed to leave a contact by the poster such as a business card, so that all delegates could contact you, should they have any questions or comments.
