Poster boards will be numbered consecutively and according to session number. The poster identification number can be found in the abstract book and on the list provided in the web site, and should be included in the right upper corner of your poster to allow matching with poster board. The poster presenter should mount their posters on the corresponding poster board.

All posters are to be removed by the end of the session. Remaining posters after this time will be removed by the organization without the possibility of recovery.
