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.
