  • You are requested to report to the Speaker-Ready Zone (2nd floor) at least 60 minutes prior to the start of your session (preferably the day before) to make sure that your presentation will be uploaded to the computer provided in the lecture room.

Poster Presentations


Eight poster sessions will take place in the main hall of the conference venue. They are scheduled from Monday to Wednesday in parallel to the invited and oral contributed sessions. You can find the session  in which  your  poster  is  scheduled  on  the  website  of  the  conference and in the conference programme.   

This  year,  the  Scientific  Programme  Committee  (SPC)  aims  to  put  poster  presentations  in  a prominent  place  and  increase  their  visibility  during  the  conference.  During  each  poster  session, poster  presenters  are  requested  to  give  a  3-minute  oral  presentation,  followed  by  1-minute discussion. A chairperson will keep track of time and lead the discussion. In addition, the SPC would like to encourage poster presenters to record in advance a short video summarizing the content of the poster. The videos should be first uploaded to Google Drive, and then shared with us. All videos will be made accessible on both the conference website and app. In that way anyone can see your presentation at any time.  


Poster presentation guidelines: 

  • Size of posters: DIN A0 – maximum 84 cm (wide) x 119 cm (high).
  • Please place the title and the authors at the top of your poster.
  • Please indicate the presenting author if different from the first author.
  • You  are requested  to  hang  your  poster  at the  poster  board marked  with  the  corresponding code at least 15 minutes before the start of your session (preferably, at the beginning of the assigned day). Adhesive double-sided tape will be provided on-site.
  • At  the  end  of  the  assigned  day,  you  are  requested  to  remove  your  poster  from  the  poster board.
  • Please, stay nearby your poster during your poster session.  


Mini oral presentations: 

  • 3-minute oral presentation, followed by 1-minute discussion.
  • A chairperson will keep track of time and lead the discussion.


Best Poster Awards:

The SPC delegates will choose the best poster presented at each poster contributed session. The design and contents of the poster and the author’s presentation itself will be important. The eight winners will be awarded with a diploma and free attendance to the Conference Dinner.

Besides, several of the eight awarded presenting authors, chosen at random, will be gifted a voucher book up to 100 EUR (sponsored by Springer and Wiley) or 100 GBP (sponsored by CRC Press).
