Poster presentation
The poster board display area is approximately 118 cm high by 84 cm wide (DIN A0), allowing for the frame. Your poster may be smaller, but cannot exceed this size.
The top of your poster should include the presentation number of your abstract (as noted in your confirmation letter), the presentation title and authors. Text and illustrations must be read by interested scientists from distances of 3-5 feet (1-2 meters). Charts, drawings, and illustrations should be more heavily drawn than those prepared for slides. A short and legible "Introduction" and a "Summary of Conclusions" are helpful to the attendee. Keep text and figure legends short, but do not omit them. Keep illustrative material simple. Simple use of color can add emphasis effectively. Above all, use large print!

Oral presentation
Oral presentations are supposed to not to extend 10 minutes; 7 minutes for presenting data and 3 minutes for discussion. Selected oral presentations will be chosen from submitted abstracts and the corresponding author will be informed beforehand to prepare the presentation in time.
