The poster presentations (A0, portrait format or 70 cm width x 100 cm height) will be an important part of the conference. Two official poster sessions are planned. However, the posters will be on display during the whole conference, so that there is also time to look at the posters during the breaks. Poster contributors will be also given the opportunity to present their poster results with “flash” presentations. More details will follow.
