Call for Papers

Offered papers
Offered papers will be presented at the Congress as posters. A maximum of two abstracts by each participant will be accepted.

Instructions for poster presenters
║Я Poster papers have equal status with invited oral presentations. Abstracts of papers will be printed and available to all Congress delegates.
║Я A display panel will be allocated to each poster. Posters are requested to be A0 paper size (840 mm ║а 1,188 mm, portrait format only). The organizer will supply dual scotch tape to attach the posters to the panel. No pens, pins or writing materials may be used on the display panels.
║Я Posters must be legible from a distance of at least 2 metres. Heading and subtitles should have the smallest letters in 80-point font (lowercase 12 mm, capitals 17 mm). In the text the smaller letters should be 36-point font (lowercase 7 mm, capitals 9 mmё╘with a line thickness of 1 mm.
║Я Each poster should have a single, easy to follow message, be readable in a few minutes, eye-catching, have logical layout, and include a photograph of the presenting authors for identification, along with authors║╞ names and addresses. Use color pictures, graphs and diagrams in preference to tables.
║Я Avoid excessive details and keep the number of words to a minimum. Use only key phrases or points. Authors will be beside posters for detailed discussion at poster viewing times.
