Therefore, the schedule with the list of poster presentations, the plenary lectures and the oral presentation is available after the deadline for registration in spring only.
 
The size of the posters is 1 - 1.20 m height and 1 m width. Larger formats cannot be accommodated on the boards. The poster will hang during the entire meeting. Posters are not subject to a selection procedure. All posters in the range of the topic and in accordance with the rules for good scientific practice are accepted.
