Instructions for E-Poster Presenters

Poster Discussion Sessions

Certain Posters will be scheduled in dedicated Poster Discussion Sessions. The presenters in these sessions will upload a 1-page E-Poster file to the general poster gallery (see instructions below) and also prepare a short PPT about their abstract to share during the Poster Discussion Session.

E-Poster Viewing

E-Poster presentations will not have a dedicated session time and will be available for viewing through the poster gallery on the congress platform.
Each E-Poster will consist of a 1-page file. The participants will be able to contact the poster presenter through the virtual platform.

Only E-Posters of registered participants will be displayed in the e-Poster Gallery.

E-Poster registered presenters will receive a dedicated link to upload their E-Posters by email in the coming weeks.
