Important Guidelines

  • Due to EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose possible conflicts of interest on the E-poster.
  • When presenting data and health information (including photos) all presenters must have informed consent compliant with human subjects and applicable regulations.
  • Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics and make sure every item is necessary.
  • Include the title of your presentation in the E-poster. The system will not display the poster title on the screen.
  • The lettering of the poster heading should be sufficient to be read from 1 m distance. Detailed information should be provided in a smaller type.
  • Optional Materials: If you wish, you may include a QR code on the poster which would trigger a download of the handouts (WIFI is available in the poster area).
    Your passport photograph on the poster may facilitate contacts during the congress.
