Notes for the registration:

To give a poster presentation, you need to register in advance. The registration counter will be open from 09:00 am and can be found in the foyer on the ground floor of the Medical Faculty Study Center.

To register, we need your employee ID card or a similar document that identifies your personal details. Kindly show your document when you register.

It is not mandatory to register directly at 09:00 am. It is also possible to register at another time, but no later than half an hour before your session starts. This allows the organizing team to have an overview on the number of presenters, and to coordinate with the reviewers.

The hanging of the poster can be done by a representative.

We kindly ask you to remove your poster from 3 to 4 pm. Posters left behind will be disposed of.

Participation is free for both lecturers and visitors.
