Please carefully read the information below,

There are three sessions for poster presentations,  on 23 April 2018, 24 April 2018 and 25 April 2018. During coffee break times there will be many delegates walking around the Hall and you are therefore required to be present to discuss your poster with any delegates that are interested to know more.

The posters should remain on display until 18:00 on that day.

There is no storage space and therefore any handouts, leaflets or other material that is not fixed to the board should be brought with you on the Poster Session days.
