For E-Poster Discussions and E-Posters Viewing

On-site E-Poster Discussion Sessions

The E-Posters of selected abstracts will be presented in dedicated E-Poster Discussion Sessions at the On-site Congress in Durban.

Parallel E-Poster Discussion presentations will be given on Wednesday, 15 November and Thursday, 16 November. All participants are invited to the E-Poster Stations to hear the short presentations and to ask questions. Each E-Poster Discussion Session will be guided by one moderator. Presenters should be at the E-Poster stations 10 minutes before the start of the E-Poster Discussion Session and remain there until the session has finished. Each presenter has been allocated 7 minutes total – 5 minutes to speak about his/her E-Poster, and 2 minutes for discussion.

E-Poster Viewing

E-Poster presentations will not have a dedicated session time and will be available for viewing through the E-Poster gallery on the Congress virtual platform, the mobile app, and at the E-Poster stations onsite.

E-Poster presenters will receive a dedicated link to upload their E-Posters by email.

Only E-Posters of registered participants will be displayed on-site & online.
