Poster Presentation

Poster presentations are an important and effective means of displaying scientific results. Therefore, posters will be exhibited during the entire congress (from Monday to Thursday) in the Poster Exhibition (Foyer 14.2). They will be grouped according to topics and presented in two parts.

Selected posters will be displayed in digital form during the afternoon poster session following the poster award ceremony.

In order to maintain the international character of the congress and to enable all delegates to present their work in an optimal manner, all posters must be prepared in English.
