Please note that it is allowed for participants to take pictures in the conference venue (including the exhibition hall, the poster area and lecture halls). If you do not want any scientific content of your poster to be photographed, please indicate this on your poster in a clearly visible way.

Important Guidelines

  • Due to EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose possible conflicts of interest on the poster.
  • When presenting data and health information (including photos) all presenters must have informed consent compliant with human subjects and applicable regulations.
  • Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics and make sure every item is necessary.
  • Include the title of your presentation as abstract titles will not be printed on the poster boards.
  • The lettering of the poster heading should be at least 2.5 cm high. Detailed information should be provided in a smaller type, but remember that your text must be easily readable from distances of at least 1 meter.
  • Optional Materials: If you wish, you may prepare handouts for distribution to interested colleagues. Alternatively you may include a QR code on the poster which would trigger a download of the handouts (WIFI is available in the poster area). Some authors may also wish to provide business cards/contact information. Your passport photograph on the poster may facilitate contacts during the congress.
  • For additional assistance in preparing your poster, there are a number of excellent resources available online.
    For more information, type “scientific poster preparation guidelines” into your internet search engine.
