Call for Posters
Posters are an ideal way to communicate your ideas, projects, practices and outcomes to a wider audience. The presenters should use the posters to stimulate discussion, gather feedback, provide an overview or to explore a theme in more detail.

This year, we want to favor even more the opportunity for participants to interact and network around posters. Posters will be displayed on Monday 7 of May during the welcome session and will be kept visible during coffee breaks until the end of the conference to give presenters an opportunity to speak with colleagues about their posters.

Posters are limited to one poster per presenter. Poster format: Maximum size A0 (841mm by 1189 mm).
