Guidelines for posters and oral presentation  

Guidelines for posters

  • We will provide vertical poster boards with the size of 70 x 100 cm. Please make sure that you have a vertical poster, which is not exceeding the size of the poster board (e.g., A0). 
  • Pins or stickers for the poster boards will be available. 
  • We decided to have all the posters together on Tuesday and we would be glad to have all of them up until the end (if possible).
