  • All authors will deliver their posters at the Conference Desk during the registration  (Sunday15/09).

  • Poster sessions are scheduled and described in the general scientific programme.

  • Presenters are recommended to place the title at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify the paper and to highlight the author’s names, e-mail, and address information. Text, diagrams, figures should have a size to allow a viewer to read the poster easily from a distance of about 1.5meters.
