Poster presentations

Poster presentations


This year the committee of ICBD 2018 has decided to introduce e-Posters at the 18th International Conference on Behçet's disease. Therefore would like to request the authors of the selected abstracts to prepare an e-Poster, which can be viewed at the e-Poster screens throughout the meeting (13-15 Sept 2018). E-posters presentations provide an excellent opportunity to discuss  your research with the attendees.

(Electronic posters or e-posters are similar to traditional paper posters, but displayed on-site on a large LCD television screen. Please note there will be no paper\printed posters at ICBD 2018.) 

Your e-Poster will be displayed during a special designated scheduled session for a presentation. Information ablout your session will follow soon. During this session you will be expected to be at your poster to present the results of your research with attendees and answer questions.

e-Poster Presentations (e-Poster Discussions) are allocated 3 minutes oral presentation followed by 3 minutes discussion.

The presentation will be facilitated with the use of an electronic poster board, on which we will upload your poster prior to the meeting date. The system will allow you to move around and zoom in on any section (just like a large iPad).

Discussion, Questions and Answers

At the end of your presentation there will be time to discuss and exchange questions about your research and work. The Chair of your session will facilitate questions from the audience.

Preparation of E-Posters

Each E-Poster must be submitted as a single page PDF document with a size of 1080 pixels width x 1920 pixels height in portrait orientation. Pictures should at least have 1500x1500 pixels size.

In the beginning of August you will receive more information about the date, session, time and format of your presentation and the possibility to upload your presentation before the beginning of the conference.


Abstract submission is closed.
