Posters are o ering important information and will be both on digital screens and mounted at poster boards.
Printed posters will be displayed on poster panels at the Tivoli Congress Hall Balcony.
The poster display is open to all participants during the entire congress.
The numbers on the poster panels correspond with the poster numbers in the program book and in the congress app.

All authors of odd poster numbers (P001 – P161) must be present at their poster on Thursday June 21, from 10.30 – 11.00 and 12:30 – 13:00 All authors of even poster numbers (P002 – P162)must be present at their poster on Friday June 22, from 10.30 – 11:00 and 12:30 – 13:00.

There will be 2 E-Poster stations where all posters can be viewed on a screen at Exhibition area and Tivoli Congress Hall Balcony. Here you can download a poster or contact the author.

A selected group of poster presenters are planned for a “Poster Pitch” to highlight the content of their posters.
Each selected poster presenter will have 2 minutes to pitch their poster.
There will be no time for questions during this session, but questions can be asked after the session and during the rest of the congress.
* Poster Pitch session 1 (PP-01) : Thursday June 21 – 11:00 – 11:30 Blomster / Ballonsalen
** Poster Pitch session 2 (PP-02)  : Thursday June 21 – 14:30 – 15:00 Blomster / Ballonsalen
