Talking Poster Presentation Guidelines

All abstracts accepted for “Talking Poster” will give a short oral presentation and will also have their poster displayed as an e-poster presentation at Congress.

All technical aspects of the presentations for the Congress of SOE 2017 (10-13 June 2017, Barcelona, Spain) and the EUPO Course (09-10 June 2017), will be managed by M Events Cross Media GmbH.

e-Poster Presentation
All presenters will be emailed on 3 April with instructions on how to upload their poster.  If you have not received this email by 7 April, please check your junk/spam mail and if you have still not received it, please email:

Poster authors are allowed to upload a Power Point (maximum 7 slides) presentation, including disclosure slide.  Click here to download the disclosure slide template. The submitted Electronic Posters can be viewed during the congress at workstations located within the Exhibition area during SOE 2017. The software will allow for browsing and navigating within the actual poster content, allowing fast and uncomplicated access to the desired Electronic Posters. The programme will display the poster in a uniform format, relieving the user of having to search the entire poster database. Posters can be searched for by number, title, author or free text search.

All posters should be uploaded no later than 31 May 2017 (23:59 CET – Central European Time).

Please note posters cannot be uploaded on site at SOE 2017
