Best poster Award

The best posters, selected in regard of the best notations given by the Scientific Committee on the abstracts received in due time, will be also displayed on a voting born. We invite each delegate to vote for the best poster on the voting born until Thursday July 13th, 17:00.

Instructions for the authors with their abstract selected for the best posters will be sent with these guidelines.

Should you don’t receive special instructions for the best posters, it means that your abstract is not selected for the Best poster Award.

The awarded author will receive a price during the closing ceremony.

Poster dimension and format

The poster must not exceed 130 cm high and 90 cm wide, PORTRAIT ONLY. A template is available for a A0 size poster (118,9 cm x 84,1 cm) on this link – Thank you in advance to use the template even if adapting the size of the poster.


Your poster must be written in ENGLISH. 

Poster Contents:

Each poster should contain the following elements:

1.     Title of the selected abstract,

2.     Full names of contributing authors and affiliation,

3.     Sections on the purpose of the study (Introduction, Material and methods, Results and discussion),

4.     A Conclusion (The conclusion is by far the most important part of the poster – the message should be clear and simple).

Text, tables and drawings for figures should be large enough to be seen at a distance of 2 metres. Illustrations should be used to convey important points; diagrams, graphs, bar charts, scatter grams, pie charts and photographs will enhance your presentation.

Make short statements, avoid long explanatory sentences.


In order to fit the poster board, your poster should not exceed 130 cm high and 90 cm wide (Portrait only). Prepare your material beforehand so that it will fit neatly into the space available and can be easily attached to the board. Suitable fixing materials will be provided by the Conference organisers. There will be a poster helpdesk close to the poster area, where staff will be happy to assist you.

Thin cardboard is more suitable than paper. Use a computer, or enlarge a typed text by photographic methods. If you can have your poster produced by your institution, the finished effect is more professional.

Other relevant information

In order to continue sharing your information presented on your poster, the Organising Committee will offer the possibility to display the presented posters through a .pdf file logged on the web site of the conference after its ending and for the participants who attended the Triennial. For this purpose we invite you to send your poster in a .pdf file to before June 16th 2017. A reminder will be sent to you on this point during the first days of June.
