The poster panels have
a total area of 127 x 95cm (height x width). We suggest that your
poster should be 90 x 90 cm, though you may choose any other dimensions
as long as they fit within the total area.
We suggest that you
include the title of the contribution, name of the authors, organization
represented, a few large and eye-catching images and short explanations
of the work and its conclusions. Remember that every participant
has a printed book of Proceedings with your communication in it.
Find the reference
number of your presentation from the List
of Contributions. Upon your arrival on the 6th May, you shall
find in the Congress Hall a panel with your number. The panel
will have all you need to stick the poster.

in the area where coffee breaks will be served. Two Poster Sessions
are mentioned in the Program,

your presentation and on delivering it, please remember that every
participant will have your original text printed in full colour
and so you don't need to repeat the exact contents of your communication.
Limit the number of slides and try to concentrate on the more
important points and, whenever possible, show new data and images
so as to impress upon listeners the capital issues and conclusions.
Use minimal text of sufficient size to be readable by all attending
the session. Avoid animation effects which may be problematic
to handle by other versions of the software and will impose its
timing on you. And most important of all, avoid reading the
text written in your slides, because viewers can read the
text themselves from their seats!
PowerPoint presentations should be compressed (the software you
use to prepare them allows you to compress each slide to optimal
size). If they are less than 5Mb in size, they may be mailed to
email@example.com again with "SLIDES" written

but in all cases you should also carry your presentation with
you, if possible with a back up. After registering at the symposium,
please contact the slide desk immediately (it is located a few
steps away) to check whether it has been received and is working
properly, or else hand your presentation in a pen or CD for immediate
downloading. Please (please!) remember we

time set for the first presentation of that group, so that they
may be verified beforehand.
