Two poster sessions have been planned:

Posters scheduled for the Poster Session I: Authors are kindly asked to set up their posters in the afternoon of Monday 3 or as soon as possible Tuesday 4 and to remove them by 17.30 Wednesday afternoon.
Poster viewing: 18.00-19.00 Tuesday 4. Authors should be present.

For sticking up and viewing posters please refer to the Programme and Abstract Book. The posters are distributed between the two sessions on a thematic basis, not consistently by numerical order. All poster numbers are higher than 500.

The posters must be confined to the surface of the boards, which measure 96 cm (37 in) in width and 138 cm (54 in) in height. Both tape and pins can be used which may be obtained at the Registration Desk.
