Posters will be shown for the whole Symposium time, promoting author presentation and spontaneous discussions. Poster is sticked on the supporting panel by tapes.

Posters size should not exceed:
WIDTH = 80 cm (or 4 A4 sheets width )
HEIGHT= 120 cm (or 4 A4 sheets height)

Posters panels are identified by a number which is the same assigned in the Technical Program.

Posters can be sticked on Sunday afternoon, from 17.00
Posters should be recovered by Authors not later than Wednesday, by 17.00

IN ADDITION to the poster exhibition, you are invited to present your poster with a short lecture (about 3 minutes) during a proper Poster Presentation Session, which will be held on Monday 13 (group A: from poster#1 to poster#21) and Tuesday 14 (group B: from poster#22 to poster#46) from 14:00 to 15:00.

This short lecture is not mandatory.

Whether you are interested in, you have to email your .ppt (powerpoint) presentation to before October 30.

The .ppt should be of maximum 2 slides containing the presentation.
(Please add a further third slide indicating only title, authors names and affiliation)

All Ppt presentations received after October 30 will not be included in the poster presentation program.


We are a little bit reluctant in giving too detailed instructions for preparing poster presentations, because we do not want to suppress any kind of creativity of the authors. Nevertheless, we think that some guidelines, recommendations and advises may help some of you in preparing a poster of a higher quality.

The lay-out of the poster

The contents of the poster might be subdivided as follows:

Header - Give title of poster, authors, affiliation, addresses (idea: put your photograph in the header)

Problem definition & objectives - Make clear which problem you have studied and the aims of your work.Refer briefly to previous work. Give the perspectives if you really attain the set objectives.

Strategy, methods, theory - Indicate HOW you have tried to solve the set problem: general strategy, experimental methods, theoretical aspects, ....Emphasise novel theoretical and experimental approaches.

Results - Present your findings to justify the conclusions e.g. via tables and graphs. Do not overload tables and graphs with data.

Conclusions - Draw conclusions about what you have learned from your work. Indicate the significance of the conclusion(s).

References - Give maximum 4 key references to position your work.

Acknowledgements - Should be mentioned if any.

- each section in the poster should be clearly marked with a title.
- all tables and graphs should have a caption and the axes of graphs must be clearly labelled.
- use a minimum letter height of 8 mm and a minimum "line thickness of approx. 1 mm (text must be readable from a distance of 3 metres); In MS Office a letter height of 1 mm corresponds with a font size of 6 pt. Thus the minimum font size is 48 pt. A line thickness of 1mm in MS Office is 3pt.
- avoid typescript unless substantially photographically enlarged.
- the amount of text is limited, so choose your words carefully.
- use colours for emphasis and distinction.
- in a table, try to restrict yourself to 4 columns with not more than four listings per column
-graphs should show a maximum of 3 curves
