All representers must bring a poster, this means that if you are aiming for an oral presentation and are selected for an oral presentation you must also bring a poster. When you submit your abstract via the submission form you can choose to apply for an oral presentation. The PBE2018 Scienctific Organizing Committee, who is behind the scientific program, will serve as abstract selection committee i.e. select the abstracts which will be invited to give an oral presentation.

Deadline for submission of abstracts is March 27, 2018.





• Your poster must be prepared in English, which is the official conference language.

• Each author will be provided one poster board (240 cm height x 95 cm width). Each board will be numbered and assigned to a theme, so please be sure to place your poster on the correct board. Materials for attaching your poster will be provided by the organizers.

• All posters will be displayed throughout the whole conference. Authors are expected to be present by their poster during the poster session with the theme the respective poster has been assigned to. Please consult the scientific programme.

• During the abstract selection process the Scientific Organizing Committee replaced some of the abstracts to themes that they found more appropriate. Please be sure to check the conference App for the final theme placement of your abstract.
