There will be a Poster Helpdesk onsite to assist you.

In addition to having an ON-BOARD POSTER, we encourage you to submit your poster electronically (in pdf format) so that it can be viewed on the congress app.

Online posters must be submitted via the Congress poster uploading service. In the coming months, poster presenters will be contacted via email with their unique user name and password as well as a link to the poster uploading service.

Please note that on-line poster presentations must be submitted in PDF format. They must be limited to one page and no more than 7MB.
