Cocktail Poster Session

All presenters should stand by their posters and answer questions from delegates during the Cocktail Poster Session of their session:
Cocktail Poster Session 1: Sunday, August 19 5.30pm –7.30pm
Cocktail Poster Session 2: Tuesday, August 21 5.30pm –7.30pm

During these cocktails, each presenter can serve wine to the audience visiting their poster. For this purpose, when withdrawing your badge, you will be provided with a voucher, which will allow you to claim a bottle of wine from the cater at the beginning of the Cocktail Poster Session. Non alcoolic beverages and snacks will also be available during the poster cocktail sessions.

Poster measurements

The maximum size of your poster should be 90 cm (width) x 120 cm (height), portrait style. We recommend that you use the A0 format. Your poster number will be displayed at the top of your poster board.
We highly recommend that you prepare a paper poster. Posters printed on textile are not adapted to the hanging system onsite.
Please bring your printed poster with you, as printing possibilities in this format are not available in the Congress venue.

Text layout

Give a short and comprehensive review of the basic items of your study. Divide your text into clearly delineated paragraphs and sections. Remember that it is easier to read a paragraph of six lines or less. Your poster text should be enlarged so that it can be read at a distance of about one meter.

Illustration layout

Drawings, diagrams and pictures are helpful and often necessary to illustrate results and conclusions. Make sure that your illustrations are easy to understand. Do not overload charts or drawings with information.
