Prize winners have to be present at the award session on Monday (or send a representative) to accept their prize. If they have compelling reasons not to be present, the prize will be accepted on their behalf by a Scientific Committee member.

The format of a Poster Session

  1. Poster viewing; presenter should remain near his/her poster (30 minutes)
  2. Introduction by chairmen (4 minutes)
  3. Presentations (6 minutes for presentation and 2 minutes for discussion per presenter)

A poster session is an interactive discussion. During the poster viewing, at the beginning of the session, groups gather at the various posters and move from one to the next, discussing their findings with the authors. This permits a one-to-one exchange of ideas. After the poster viewing, the poster presenters will give a short (6 minutes) presentation of their abstract using max. 6 slides (including title and Conflict of Interest slide) followed by an interactive discussion (2 minutes).


The format of the Expert-guided Poster Tour

  1. The session chairs will visit each poster one by one.
  2. The presenter states his/her Conflict of Interest and then presents his/her poster in 2 minutes during the poster viewing. Slides are not required for this Poster Tour.
  3. The session chairs discusses the content with the author during 2 minutes. The audience can pose questions and add to the discussion on what is presented.

The presenters do not have to present slides on stage.

To ensure that the PDF file is of a high quality you can create your poster (date t.b.a.) through the online Poster Builder Service. The PosterSessionOnline company will print your poster. This way you do not need to bring your poster to the congress venue! IMPORTANT: if you choose not to use the Poster Builder Service the poster will not be printed and delivered to the congress venue for you. You need to bring your own poster to congress.
