Poster Presenter Information:

The size of the poster has to be DIN-format A0 vertical (width 84,1 x height 118,9 cm) or not more than 95 x 120 cm.
Adhesive poster strips will be provided at the registration desk by the organizer.

Poster presenters are requested to display their posters at 10:00 the latest at the day of presentation and to remove them at the end of the session approximately at 23:00 the same evening.

Selected chairpersons and poster presenters will meet in front of the first poster of their session in time. Each poster should be explained within two minutes by the poster presenter, which will leave one minute for discussion.
