Please note that posters cannot be uploaded in .pdf or .ppt format. If you include videos in your poster and wish to show them during your talk, please check the loading time and display quality to make sure that a smooth presentation is possible. There is a limit of 3000 words for the text, but we recommend to structure the poster in a way that enables a compatible oral presentation of 4-5 minutes maximum.

Presentation details

Please prepare a speech of 4-5 minutes maximum highlighting the main messages / teaching points of your poster.

If there is time there might be questions from the audience, but not necessarily.

During your presentation, you will be able to access your uploaded poster in the EPOS Online Viewing system on a laptop at the speaker's desk, and the same image will also be shown to the audience on large screens.

During the presentation you will be able to click through the poster and show any section or image that you wish in order to highlight the message of your work.

The poster will be displayed approximately in the same form as it appears online (not the PDF format).

You can view your finished poster to prepare your oral presentation and make sure that you know where to find all relevant images and text parts. Please note that it is not possible to show additional files - all presentation elements must be part of your poster.

However, you can of course prepare notes for yourself to back up your oral presentation.

There might be changes in the order of presentations, and therefore the presenting authors are asked to attend the entire session.

Presenters are kindly asked to check in at the Voice of EPOS desk 10-15 minutes before the session starts.
