Presentation of Posters can be based on preliminary results and correspond to short studies or trials. High scientific level is expected in any case.

  • Authors are welcome to add images, tables and detailed data to better document their work.
  • All abstracts accepted as Posters will be presented at the Congress as wall paper posters in a large display area within the exhibition.
  • EFORT does not undertake any action for the printing of accepted Posters.
  • The availability of the correct print poster version on-site is totally under the presenting author’s responsibility.
  • Pre-upload of the electronic version of each Poster is mandatory to receive a physical space for display. Please consult the Presentation Delivery Guidelines.
  • Poster Walks Sessions group the 10 best rated posters of each topic and require the presence of the corresponding presenting author in front of his/her Poster during the whole schedule of 90 minutes.
  • Authors will be required to explain their results during 5 minutes and reply to one question from the examiner. Should the presenter not be in his position, the Poster will not be evaluated.
  • From all the presentations of the same Poster Walk, the best discussion will receive a special distinction (certificate and award ribbon).

Please note that not all posters will be selected to be orally presented during a Poster Walk. Authors will receive specific guidelines regarding each Poster.

  • Posters should be prepared under a single slide PowerPoint® file with a portrait DIN A0 format in vertical display.
