Poster Dimensions
Poster boards are 2m tall by 1,5m wide. Make sure your Poster fits (it can be smaller, but not larger than the board dimensions).
Poster Mounting
To preserve the boards (made of transparent plastic), please use adhesives that leave no residue (e.g. transparent tape from Wurth, or similar).

Mount your poster between 8:00 and 8:50
(July 13, 2018) and keep it on for both sessions.
