The format of a Poster Session

  1. Introduction by chairmen
  2. Presentations (short presentation and short discussion per presenter)

This year, poster viewing at the poster boards is not possible due to the virtual format of the meeting and therefore presenters do not need to print a physical poster.

A poster session is an interactive discussion. The poster presenters will give a short presentation of their abstract using the digital poster or one slide followed by a short interactive discussion. Max 6 slides can be submitted, which will be uploaded in the Resource Centre (including title and Conflict of Interest slide).
