e-Poster Presentation

The final program will contain dedicated slots for you to present your e-Poster during an oral presentation. You will be given a dedicated five minutes slot in which you can present your research results. As basis you are only allowed to use your e-Poster presentation. As time is very tight you should be very concise in what you are going to communicate. Use your time slot and concentrate on the “WOW” results you obtained with your work. Visuals might make the difference to other work and underline your results.To complement your e-Poster presentation and to make it available to a broader audience, authors are requested to provide a five slide presentation file (Accepted formats are: .pptx, pdf) including multimedia material. This e-Poster will be displayed in the e-Poster presentation on a large screen in the meeting room. You can also prepare supplementary multimedia (MM) or video material that replaces your five slides. However, any replacing video material should contain the same level of information indicated in the subsequent preparation guidelines and must not exceed five minutes of duration.

Preparation of your e-Poster
