Poster material
The maximum size of your poster should be 90 cm (width) x 120 cm (height), portrait style. Your poster number will be displayed with large printed figures in a corner of the poster board. Your poster material should be attached on the surface by materials which will be provided to you by the Congress staff in the poster desk.

Text layout
Give a short and comprehensive review of the basic items of your study. Divide your text into several clearly delineated paragraphs and sections such as Introduction or Aim of Study, Materials and Methods, Result and Conclusions. Remember that it is easier to read a paragraph of six lines or less. Your poster text should be enlarged so that it can be read at a distance of about one metre.

Illustration layout
Drawings, diagrams and photos are very helpful and often necessary to display results and conclusions. Make sure that your illustrations are easy to understand; do not overload any chart or drawing with information.

Conflict of interest
A disclosure of conflict of interest* must be included on the Poster. It should be placed either on the top or the bottom of the poster and state one of the below:

In relation to this presentation, I declare the following, real or perceived conflicts of interest:

OR

In relation to this presentation, I declare that there are no conflicts of interest.

* A conflict of interest is any situation in which a speaker or immediate family members have interests, which may cause a conflict with the current presentation. Conflicts of interest do not preclude the delivery of the talk, but should be explicitly declared. These may include financial interests (eg. owning stocks of a related company, having received honoraria, consultancy fees), research interests (research support by grants or otherwise), organisational interests and gifts.

Poster printing service
In co-operation with PosterSessionOnline, the Congress offers a printing and delivery service. Create your poster, there are several templates available on-line, get it printed and shipped to Geneva.
