- Only posters in portrait format can be mounted.
- The usable surface on the poster board will be 90 cm width x 150 cm height (approx. 35 x 59 inches).
- Only adhesive tape can be used to mount posters. Material will be available onsite.
- Due to EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose possible conflicts of interest on the 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. The ESHG will not post the abstract titles on display boards.
- The lettering of the poster heading should be at least 2.5 cm high. Detailed information should be provided in a smaller type, but remember that your text must be easily readable from distances of at least 1 meter.
- Optional Materials: If you wish, you may prepare handouts for distribution to interested colleagues.
Alternatively you may include a QR code on the poster which would trigger a download of the handouts (WIFI is available in the poster area).
Some authors may also wish to provide business cards/contact information.
Your passport photograph on the poster may facilitate contacts during the congress.
- For additional assistance in preparing your poster, there are a number of excellent resources available online. For more information, type “scientific poster preparation guidelines” into your internet search engine.
