Poster information
Posters can be setup during Tuesday morning from 7:30. Support is provided until 10:00. Poster boards and pushpins will be provided by WETPOL. Each poster is assigned a number in advance. We number the boards, so you do not need to put a number on your poster. The format of the poster board is 120 cm x 150 cm (width x height). We suggest to use landscape format. The posters must be picked up after the last poster session on Wednesday evening at 20:00 as we need to clear the room. During the Tuesday and Wednesday poster sessions, stand at your posters during the appointed time so attendees can meet with you and ask questions about your work.

Poster awards
The three best posters will be awarded DKK 5,000, DKK 3,000 and DKK 1,500, respectively, by the publishing house MDPI. Emphasis will be on clarity, good balance of images/figures and text, and clear objectives and conclusions. The poster awards will be announced at the closing ceremony.

Oral Presentation information
Each of the four auditoriums has a person responsible for operating the computers in the auditorium. Please bring your .ppt on a USB stick, and hand in your presentation as soon as possible after your registration and in due course before the session in which you are presenting. Concurrent session speakers each have 15-minutes, including time for their introduction, Q&A, and shift of speaker. Hence, we suggest to use maximum 12 minutes for the presentation. Moderators will enforce the 15-minute limit. Prepare accordingly.
