Attended poster sessions

Presenting authors should be available at their poster to explain and discuss their work to interested participants during the relevant poster sessions.

Your poster notation will be available at the end of April in the Congress website’s registration/abstract system after logging in when you preview your abstract.

Mounting your poster

The poster area will be open from 8:00 for mounting of posters each day when the poster session takes place. Mounting materials will be available at the poster helpdesk.  All posters should be set up no later than the first coffee break (11:00) and remain in place till the end of the scientific program that day.

Posters must be hung at the board number corresponding to your abstract notation in the Congress website and app. There will be stewards to assist you.

Removing your poster

Please remove your poster after the end of the scientific program that day when the poster session takes place. Posters not removed by the indicated time above will be dismantled and destroyed.

Preparing your poster

Posters will be displayed in portrait format.
The dimensions of the poster should not exceed 90 cm wide x 140 cm high.
Abstract title, author(s) and affiliation(s) should appear at the top of the poster.
The text, illustrations, etc. should be readable from a distance of two meters.

Finding and viewing posters

Accepted abstracts will be available online just prior to the conference on the Congress website (via the abstract search tool), the Congress app, and, if submitted by the March deadline, the FEBS Open Bio supplement of abstracts, to enable participants to comfortably decide which posters to visit.

In addition, delegates can choose to make a 1-minute video about their poster for the FEBS Network – look out for more details ahead of the event.

FEBS Press Poster Prizes

FEBS Press poster prizes for outstanding scientific posters at the FEBS Congress will be awarded by The FEBS Journal, FEBS Letters, Molecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio. More details will be posted here soon.

Poster printing

The Congress organizers are offering the possibility to print your poster out onsite. To avoid carrying the poster all the way from your home and any possible damage or loss, you may send us your poster via e-mail and we will print it out for you. You can then easily pick it up at the poster helpdesk onsite.

Authors interested in the printing service should send their posters in PDF format (printing quality) to email. Once your poster is checked, our personnel will get back to you with a confirmation. For posters sent in advance (received and paid by 4th July), the price for this printing service is 45 EUR
