Poster Presentations

Poster Session:

The poster session will be held on Wednesday, June 5, 2019, from 16:00 to 18:00 h. It will take place in the ground floor. Here, the hallway adjacent to the meeting room will be used. The posters can be mounted from Monday, 9:00 h onwards and be displayed during the whole workshop. They have to be removed Thursday, 14:00 h, i.e. right after lunch.

Poster Mounting:

The posters are mounted by means of terminal strips. The terminal strips are already fixed to the walls. Once the upper edge of the poster is inserted into the opening of the strip, it snaps in and the poster hangs (very) stably. Additional balance weights are provided which may optionally be fixed to the posters lower margin so that it hangs straight. De-mounting needs to done under care.

Poster Size:

Maximum Size: DIN A0 (Height: 118.9 cm X Width: 84.1 cm)

The lateral space is limited. Hence, please don’t use landscape orientation. It will technically be problematic to exhibit posters with landscape orientation.
