Text height minimum 6 mm (the poster has to be legible from a distance of 2 to 3 meters). Furthermore, the presentation should follow the usual reading order: from left to right and from top to bottom.

Poster delivery and installation: Please do not send your poster in advance unless your travel arrangements make it necessary; take it along on the first day of the conference and hand in at the reception, the staff will ensure its display. The posters will be accessible throughout the conference.

Photo: For easier identification during the conference, please provide us with a portrait photo of the presenter – the photo will be placed at the header of the poster. Please upload your photo via the conference electronic system until 15 June – after login go to “Your Submission” page and there follow the link “Final Upload” for each of your presented contributions accepted as a poster and upload it as a 3rd file (highlighted in red).

Unforeseen absence: If for any reason you cannot attend the conference, please inform us as soon as you know by email at If possible, send a person to replace you during the oral presentation or at least to deliver a poster. Empty poster display panels are not nice to see and take up valuable space.
