The poster boards are 96 cm wide and 122 cm high. The format of the posters must be A1 (59,4 cm wide and 84,1 cm high). Only posters in portrait format are allowed. Each poster board will be identified by a poster number. We refer to the final program (ONLINE!) to confirm the number assigned to your poster presentation.

Posters can be put up a couple of hours before the start of the official poster sessions. In that way, participants can already have a look at the posters before the official poster session starts.

  • Posters of Poster Session 1 can be put up on Thursday 7 June from 08:30.
  • Posters of Poster Session 2 can be put up on Thursday 7 June from 14:00 (after Poster Session 1).
  • Posters of Poster Session 3 can be put up on Friday 8 June from 08:30.
  • Posters of Poster Session 4 can be put up on Friday 8 June from 14:00 (after Poster Session 3).

  • TITLE - Prepare a banner for the top of the poster indicating the title, author(s) and affiliation(s).
  • LAYOUT - Avoid long texts and use graphs and diagrams as much as possible.
  • ILLUSTRATIONS - Figures should be designed to be viewed from a distance, and should use clear graphics. Each figure or table should have a heading in large typeface. Use a legend in smaller typeface for additional information.
  • Handouts are useful to provide background information.
