The screen format will be wide screen 16:9.

Please provide your file latest two hours before your session to the administrative staff in the conference room.


Poster Presentations

EASD-ISG/BCW is not offering any poster printing services! You will have to print your poster at your institute and bring it to the conference at the Westin Bellevue Dresden, Germany.

The posters have to be in a portrait format with a maximum size of DIN A0 (84.1 x 118.9 cm) which corresponds to 33.1 x 46,8 inches.

Poster Set-up and Tear-down Dates and Times: On Monday, May 8, 2017, you should set up your poster between 8:00am–8:30am. Please remove your poster on Wednesday, May 10, latest at 7:00pm. All posters that were not removed until Thursday morning will be disposed.

IMPORTANT: We will not send posters to participants when the workshop is over.

Poster Presentation Dates, and Times:
Posters will be available for viewing Monday through Wednesday from 08:30 to 18:00. On Monday and Tuesday, there will be a dedicated poster session period. It is required that authors be present as follows:

No scientific talks are scheduled in conflict with the poster sessions. The presenting author must be present beside his/her poster for the assigned session indicated above. Moreover, poster presenters are requested to prepare a 5-minute talk about their work to members of the poster evaluation committee. The best-evaluated posters will win a poster award.

The poster should be self-explanatory and must cover the same material as reported in the abstract. Materials to fix the poster on the poster wall will be provided on site.
