Instructions for Poster Presentation


The poster exhibition will be held in Hall X and Y. Your poster board will be marked with the number given in your personal e-mail notification. This number will remain the same both in the Final Programme and in the Abstract Book. Please note that you should use the poster number indicated in your notification and not the serial number indicated earlier.


The posters will be displayed in two groups and presented during “interactive poster presentation” sessions. All of the poster presenters will be requested to deliver a “two minutes take home message” and to answer questions, which will allow the moderators to select the best posters for the “best poster awards”.

A prize of 200 EUR will be awarded to the best poster in each of the 70 poster sessions. The 70 awards will be announced on Wednesday morning and given during the Closing Ceremony. All awards must be collected personally on site. Please bear this in mind when you book your flight.

Make sure to remove all poster-mounting material from the board. The Congress staff will remove posters not taken down on time. However, the Congress Organisers will not take any further responsibility for the material.

Poster Material

The maximum size of your poster should be 940 mm (width) x 1300 mm (height) (portrait). The poster board is made of laminated panel. Your poster number will be displayed with large printed figures in a corner of the poster board. Your poster material should be attached on the surface by double-sided tape, which will be provided by the Congress staff at the poster exhibition desk in the poster exhibition area.

Text layout

Give a short and comprehensive review of the basic items of your study. Dividing your text into several but clearly delineated paragraphs and sections such as Introduction or Aim of Study, Materials and Methods, Result-Conclusions can do this. Remember that it is easy to start reading a paragraph of six lines and that most people avoid one with 30!

Your poster text should be enlarged so that it can be read at a distance of about one meter.

Illustration layout

Drawings, diagrams and photos are extremely helpful and often necessary to display results and conclusions. Make sure that your illustrations are easy to understand; do not overload any chart or drawing with information.
