Information for Poster Sessions
The poster contributions are grouped by subject. All posters will be up for the full duration of the conference. Each day, except for Tuesday July 2nd, the extended lunch breaks (13:00-14:30) are available for poster presentations. Thus, there is ample time for all conference participants to view the posters, and for poster authors to get feedback on their work.

Schedule - Presenters with odd poster number are asked to please attend their posters for discussion on Monday (July 1) and Thursday (July 4) and presenters with even poster number on Wednesday (July 3) and Friday (July 5). In this way both poster presenters and attendees are given the opportunity to present their own posters and have discussions with other poster presenters from their own and other subject areas. For numbering of posters please see the book of abstract.

Format - The size of the poster board is 120 cm x 180 cm (width x height). We suggest A0 protrait format poster size.
