Due to counteract the phenomenon of ghostwriting, we need your information on 'Author's Contribution':

You should enclose information about the author's affiliation.

We do not provide for any payments (neither for authors nor for evaluators). By publishing in the abstract book and in the research book, authors transfer the copyrights on published papers to Scientific Committee of the Congress.

In what is concerned to the congress communications, the Scientific Committee will decide on the evaluation of papers, with regard to the proposals of the authors to do oral presentation or poster.


Poster Session Guidelines

The poster sessions will be held according the program schedule, in the Congress Centre.

Each presenter is provided with a B1 format poster board (70 x 100 cm).

Organisational Committee suggest:

• Place the title of your poster at the top of the poster board to allow viewers to identify your poster. Indicate title and authors' names.

• Highlight at least the first author’s name, e-mail, and affiliation.

• Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand in a size sufficient to be read at a distance of 2 meters. Paragraph and figure caption text should be AT LEAST 24-point font (0.9 cm height) and headers AT LEAST 36 point font (1.2 cm height). Use creativity by using different font sizes and styles, perhaps even color.

• Use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar contained in your graph or chart. A serif font (e.g., Times) is often easier for reading main text, and a non-serif font (e.g., Arial or Helvetica) for headers and figure labels.

• Organize the paper on the poster board so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc.

• Use squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group like ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as I, II, III; or 1, 2, 3; or A, B, C, making it easier for a viewer to follow your display.

• Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions. A successful poster presentation depends on how well you convey information to an interested audience.


To locate your assigned poster board, look for your name (or number) in the top left corner of the Poster Boards.

• Posters should be set up at 9:00 a.m. of each day session.

• Posters must remain up until 19:30 p.m. in each day session. After that they must be removed. Posters remaining after these times will be removed. Organizational Committee cannot be responsible for posters and materials left on poster boards after the stated hours.

• The poster sessions will begin according the program schedule.

• Pushpins and other materials are available at the Help Desk.

Help Desk

The Help Desk is located at the entrance to Congress Centre.

Staff will be available to assist you with location and other on-site needs. Pushpins, tape, and scissors will be available for your use. Additional supplies may be available. If you have questions, please contact us
