Guidelines For ePoster Presenters
Submission Deadline September 16, 2018

In order to exploit new technologies that are environmentally friendly the XXIV World Congress of Asthma introduces the use of electronic posters (e-Posters) displayed on computer screens instead of printed on paper. Therefore all accepted abstracts for Poster Presentation will be scheduled as e-Posters.

All electronic poster presenters should send their presentation no later than September 16, 2018. No e-Posters will be accepted after the deadline.

All e-Posters will be displayed in the e-Poster area. The e-Posters will be displayed on multimedia screens available for e-Posters only. Multiple e-Posters will be available on each screen. On one screen the Slides will be advanced by mouse click and as a running presentation on the other . The e-Posters can be looked up by poster number, title, category or presenting author name.

Besides being displayed onsite, all e-posters will be made available for viewing on the conference website for up to one month after the conference, if the presenting author so wishes.
