Online posters on the Congress app

To facilitate dissemination of your poster presentation we also encourage you to upload a poster PDF with an audio description on the Congress app. This optional opportunity will allow Congress participants more time to browse posters, and there are tools on the app to make contact with poster presenters for questions or to arrange a chat outside of the dedicated sessions at the venue. More details on how to upload your poster to the app will be available nearer the time of the event.  

Poster notations

Your poster reference for the event will be available in the Congress website's registration/abstract system by the end of April: if you preview your accepted abstract after logging in you will see it under the abstract title. Close to the time of the event you will also find poster notations via the Abstract Search tool on the website and on the Congress mobile app.

Mounting and removing your poster

The poster area will be open from 08:00 on the Sunday, Monday and Tuesday of the event for mounting of posters. In addition, posters for the Sunday can be mounted on Saturday 8th July (from 15:00) for browsing during the welcome reception. All posters should be set up no later than 08:45 each day and remain in place until 18:30 on Sunday and until 18:00 on Monday and Tuesday. Please ensure your poster is removed by 19:00 on your day of poster presentation; if it is not removed it will be disposed of by staff at the venue. Mounting materials will be available at the registration desk. Posters must be hung at the board number corresponding to your abstract reference number in the Congress website and app. Please direct your queries to the registration desk.

Preparing your poster

Posters will be displayed in portrait format.
The dimensions of the poster should be 118,9 cm x 84,1 cm (in A0 format).
Abstract title, author(s) and affiliation(s) should appear at the top of the poster.
The content should be readable from a distance of 2 m.

Finding and viewing posters

Accepted abstracts will be available online just prior to the conference on the Congress website (via the Abstract Search tool), the Congress app, and, if submitted by the March deadline, the FEBS Open Bio supplement of abstracts, to enable participants to comfortably decide which posters to visit. This will be explained in more detail in a 'Latest news' post nearer the time of the event.

Poster prizes

Poster prizes for outstanding scientific posters at the Congress will be awarded each day by The FEBS JournalFEBS LettersMolecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio, with the daily prize-winners shortlisted for overall prizes to be announced during the closing ceremony. Biochimie, the journal of SFBBM, will also award two poster prizes, and there will be a FEBS Education Poster Prize too. More details can be found in a ‘Latest news’ post here.

Poster printing

Please print your poster before arrival; we do not offer the possibility to print onsite. If you require contact details for local printing offices, please email the Congress Secretariat (info-febs2023@wearemci.com).
