How to prepare your virtual poster?

Your virtual poster can be either in the form of a classical, static, 1 slide-poster layout preferentially in landscape format or as an interactive PDF presentation.
Please use large font sizes to allow viewing the poster on a standard computer screen.
The 'traditional style’ of a single large sheet of A0 is not appropriate for a virtual poster.

There is also a possibility to advertise your poster during a mini-session on Wednesday 15th of September after lunch 14:00-15:00. Those who are interested please let us know at as soon as possible.

The poster sessions will be organised in a similar way as those face-to-face poster sessions. This will be an ideal time to look at the posters, ask the questions to the authors using chat, private messages or even talk to the authors in the online conversation. There will be “rooms” for such activities. We encourage the authors of posters and all participants to be present during so much appreciated informal discussions during the poster sessions.
