Poster Guidelines

Attended poster presentations

Posters will be hung all day on the Sunday, Monday or Tuesday of the FEBS Congress (in the Exhibition Area) according to the list of topics by day below.

The attended poster sessions – where presenters will be by posters to explain and discuss their work with those interested – will be between 14:00 and 15:30 on these days. We encourage you to support all presenters at the event with active and friendly engagement in the poster sessions.

Please note that in this 90 min presentation period, to facilitate circulation within a topic there will be an odd–even number split of presentations: poster presenters whose posters have an odd number in the last part (suffix) of their notation (e.g. P-02.5-001, P-02.5-003) should be at their poster in the first 45 min of the session (14:00–14:45), whereas poster presenters whose posters have an even number in the last part of their notation (e.g. P-03.3-002, P-03.3-004) should be at their poster in the second 45 min of the session (14:45–15:30).

Poster notations

Your poster reference for the event will be available in the Congress website's registration/abstract system by the end of April: if you preview your accepted abstract after logging in you will see it under the abstract title. (Accepted late-breaking abstracts will receive notations later, after the review period for these abstracts.) Close to the time of the event you will also find poster notations via the Abstract Search tool on the website and on the Congress mobile app.

Preparing your poster

Posters will be displayed in portrait format.
The dimensions of the poster should be 84,1 cm x 118,9 cm (in A0 format). 
Abstract title, author(s) and affiliation(s) should appear at the top of the poster.
The content should be readable from a distance of 2 m.
Posters can be attached to the laminated panel with double-sided tape.

Poster printing

Please print your poster before arrival; we do not offer the possibility to print onsite. If you require contact details for local printing offices, please email the Congress Secretariat at febs2024.speakers@aimgroup.eu.

Online posters on the Congress app

To facilitate dissemination of your poster presentation we also encourage you to upload a poster PDF with an audio description on the Congress app. This optional opportunity will allow Congress participants more time to browse posters, and there are tools on the app to make contact with poster presenters for questions or to arrange a chat outside of the dedicated sessions at the venue. More details on how to upload your poster to the app will be available nearer the time of the event.  

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. This will be explained in more detail in a 'Latest news' post nearer the time of the event.

Mounting and removing your poster

The poster area will be open from 07:30 on the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the event for mounting of posters.
All posters should be set up no later than 08:15 each day and remain in place until 19:00 Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your poster is removed by 19:00 on your day of poster presentation; if it is not removed, it will be disposed of by staff at the venue. Mounting materials will be available at the registration poster desk. Posters must be hung at the board number corresponding to your abstract reference number in the Congress website and app. Please direct your queries to the poster desk.

Poster prizes

Poster prizes for outstanding scientific posters at the Congress will be awarded each day by The FEBS JournalFEBS LettersMolecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio, with the daily prize-winners shortlisted for overall prizes to be announced during the closing ceremony. See the latest news post here for more details.
