We would like to alert all our members and delegates to be aware of possible scams and to strongly advise you to only use the official ECCMID online registration and accommodation services for your bookings.

Paper poster sessions

Most of the accepted abstracts are scheduled for paper poster session. The paper posters are displayed in the poster area of the congress and the presentations are split in about six sessions with a poster change each day. Each poster session will feature various topics and has a duration of one hour. The poster presenter is requested to be at her/his poster during the presentation time. All paper posters can be submitted also as an ePoster to be shown on all four congress days on all ePoster terminals as well as in ESCMID's eLibrary. Please note: strict adherence to mounting and removal times is required. Posters that are not displayed during the requested time will be marked as no shows and presenters will not receive a certificate. Also the technical requirements for size and layout of the poster have to be fulfilled.

Paper poster presenters are invited to upload their paper print file in PDF format.
