Poster Sessions

Poster sessions combine text and graphic display of materials. The scientific committee will attempt to group posters together on the basis of thematic convergence between the different posters. Presenters will have the opportunity of a very short oral presentation of each poster (5 minutes) followed by a discussion among participants and presenters moderated by the Chair.

The size of the poster board is approx. 85 cm (width) * 120 cm (height).
