Science at a Glance Presenters

The 87th EAS Congress will be implementing E-posters as Science in a Glance sessions. The E-Poster terminals are located in the exhibition area.

  • All Posters will appear on plasma stations in the Poster Area in the Exhibition hall and are available for electronic viewing at all times for participants during the exhibition opening hours.
  • Posters do not require printing or production of materials, as the poster will be presented electronically, uploaded in advance to the congress site by the presenter.
  • This new format replaces the traditional paper poster board format for this category of presentation.
  • Each presenter will be allocated 7 minutes presentation time plus 3 minutes for discussion.
  • Please refer to the section for Science at a Glance presentations in the programme book for details.
  • Presenting authors are requested to arrive at least 15 minutes before the start of their session.

All authors will be contacted directly with all preparation details and information regarding technical aspects of e-posters.
