• Posters always generate more discussion, as there is more time for contact between authors and participants.
• Posters are placed in a spacious and adequately lighted room.
• The poster boards are large and placed sufficiently apart from each other, so each one stands out.
• Coffee is served in the poster room so participants have ready access to the posters.
• No other events are scheduled during the Poster Sessions.
• Posters of each session are on display for two days continuously.
• The Poster program is released at the same time as the oral papers, and printed with the same layout.
• There is absolutely no differentiation between poster and oral papers as regards publication of the proceedings.
• There are special prizes for the best student posters.
