Authors are kindly requested to be present by the posters within the session indicated in their Scientific Personal Schedule available online and in the final Programme.

Poster area

The poster area is located on the 2nd floor in the Congress Hall Foyer. For onsite assistance a poster information desk will be available within the poster area, opened as follows:


Tuesday, June 23 08:00 20:00
Wednesday, June 24 08:00 20:00
Thursday, June 25 08:00 20:00

Poster dimensions

Each poster board will be given a specific number. Please make sure to mount your poster on the poster board with the number corresponding to the number assigned to your poster presentation (available in your Personal Scientific Schedule). The poster number consists of the symposium code (serves only to keep display logic) and number of actual poster board (e.g., A01/001 means poster board 001 within the A01 symposium)

The maximum dimensions of your poster should be 90 cm wide and 120 cm high (portrait orientation).

In order to fit the poster board, your poster should not exceed the recommended size. Prepare your material beforehand so that it will fit the space available and can be easily attached to the board. Thin cardboard is more suitable than paper. The organizers will provide suitable fixing materials, and onsite assistance will be available to help you to display your poster.

Mounting and removing your poster

Your poster should be mounted before the beginning of the first poster session and removed by the end of the last poster session of the corresponding symposium. If not removed by the author, the poster will be removed and trashed by our staff.
