Instructions for poster presenters
Three poster sessions will be organized on Monday, June 13, Tuesday, June 14 and on Thursday, June 16. Each poster will be assigned to one of these three sessions, and the presenters should be available next to their poster stand at 1.00 - 1.30 pm and 4.00 - 4.30 pm on the session day. The presenters will find their poster session/respective poster stand number in their conference material. Presenters are kindly requested to set up their posters at any time before noon of the session day, and to remove them by the end of the day.

The poster boards are double sided. One side of a board will be available for each poster. The posters should be prepared on sheets of size A3 standard at least, in which case the 195 x 115 cm (width x height) maximal space available can accommodate a maximum of 12 sheets.

While preparing your poster, please use lightweight material (not cardboard). Pushpins must be able to hold your poster sheets when mounted on the poster board. Pushpins will be available in the conference office.

Each poster has to include the title as announced for the conference program, author's name (and names of possible co-authors) and contact information. Please apply font size sufficiently large to ensure good readability/visibility and test these aspects of your display before the meeting.

The standard language of the conference is English proposed to be used for the posters as well.

Presenters are adviced to bring along a small amount of hard copies (in standard size) of their poster and/or of the respective article/manuscript to be distributed to the interested audience.
