Length of the oral presentations / discussion time:

After each lecture we have scheduled a Q&A session, where participants have the opportunity to discuss with the speakers. Please schedule this accordingly.

Strict timekeeping will be essential for the smooth running of the conference.

As an online meeting platform we use Converia's Virtual Venue and as presenting platform we use ZOOM. We recommend to download the ZOOM APP to share your presentation. We are planning test runs in the week before the conference. Detailed information will be sent to you in due time.

Poster Information

The poster presentation of latest results is an important facet of the scientific programme. The posters will be presented and numbered according to the final poster programme.


Preparation of Poster

As a major guideline it is proposed to make the poster intelligible in itself, even in the absence of the author. It is suggested to divide the contents of each poster into introduction, results and conclusions, with a summary listing the pertinent results and conclusions.

 Standard size for posters is 0.85 x 1.2 m (DIN A0-German Standard) vertically oriented. Therefore, please find the following specifications:

  • the minimum size should be 20 cm for graphs;
  • 3 cm for the paper’s title and the names/adresses of the authors in the heading lable;
  • 1,5 cm for sections headings such as introduction, results, labelling of figures and tables;
  • 0,8 cm characters in height for further text
  • Line spacing: 1,1 cm at minimum; 10 of such lines correspond to one figure.
  • Please use colours, symbols and schemes for improved clarity.
e-Poster Preparation

The posters will be shown throughout the whole conference as an e-Poster. Details for upload will be given in due time.


Poster Discussions on each day of the conference

For the most effective and intensive discussion we recommend to initiate your individual virtual meeting room for the duration of the poster discussions.

Please enter your individual access link under your ePoster directly within the ‘Question & Answers‘ Area before the discussion starts. You can choose any virtual room you prefer.
