Poster presentations accepted for the Congress will be available for viewing as E-Posters, available online and via the Mobile App during and after the Meeting. Electronic Posters or E-Posters are similar to traditional paper posters, but displayed on-site on multiple large LCD television screens. Abstracts selected for E-Poster Viewing will have no specific presentation date and time.  Any E-Poster can be viewed on any screen at any time during the Congress as well as on mobile devices (smartphones. tablets and laptops) via the Congress App. These E-Posters platforms allow users to browse by topics, search for specific content and submit questions to the authors. The author of the E-Poster may stand by the E-Poster screens in order present their E-Poster during breaks. Additionally, delegates will be able to email the presenter via the E-Poster system to set up a meeting to discuss the E-Poster.  E-Poster screens can be found in the E-Poster area. Authors have been encouraged to embed explanatory audio or video presentations with their E-Posters. These posters do not require printing or production of materials – as your work will be available for viewing electronically.
