Each Poster presenter must prepare an e-Poster that will consist of a 1-page Portrait pdf file and upload it via our online system.

e-Poster presentations will not have a dedicated session time. All e-Posters will be available on the congress platform during the entire congress until 3 months after the congress.

Only e-Posters of registered participants will be displayed in the e-Poster Gallery.

The participants will be able to contact the poster presenter through the virtual platform.

e-Poster registered presenters should receive a dedicated link to upload their e-Posters by email in the begging of August. Please contact siop_abstracts@kenes.com if you haven’t received it.

Deadline for uploading your e-Poster: Tuesday, September 19, 2023.
