Posters of the 7thBBBBB Conference should be presented during the Poster sections scheduled for either Thursday or Friday late afternoon. An electronic poster presentation system will be used. The posters will be uploaded and presented on electronic poster boards. The poster authors thus do not need print their poster but should send it, preferably as a PDF file, to the Conference Office (abstract@7thbbbb.com) until 20 September, 2017. Detailed instructions and templates for e-poster preparation can be found below.
During the Poster sections the authors should summarize their main results in max. 2 minutes followed by max. 2 minutes of discussion. Because more than 200 posters will be presented we ask all colleagues to keep the time limits. The posters will be available on the boards all Thursday and Friday allowing more time for further discussions. The change from Poster section 1 posters to those of Poster section 2 will take place after the first Coffee break on Friday.


E-posters can be prepared by any presentation editing (e.g. Microsoft PowerPoint, Apple Keynote) or graphical (e.g. CorelDraw, Adobe PhotoShop) application that can save or export to PDF file.

Please use the following settings for the best performance:
1. Poster size: Width: 72 cm (28.35″); Height: 128 cm (50.5″)
2. For better readability san-serif fonts (e.g. Arial, Calibri, Helvetica, Lucida, Verdana) with a minimum of 24 point size should be used. Figures, tables and graphs should be as large as possible.
You can download template files with appropriate settings for

There is an option of incorporating short videos in your poster. For this purpose use MS PowerPoint, embed your video, set the video to start immediately and repeat infinitely.
3. For best compatibility save or export your poster as a PDF file (Use save or export option instead of print to PDF to avoid presenting white printer margins in the PDF file). PPT files are also accepted but might not presents identically on the e-poster screen due to compatibility issues. Inserting figures, graphs and tables as images rather than in their native file format is suggested in this case.
Use the following file name system: bbbb-’surename of the presenting author’-’firstname of the presenting author’-’numbering as 1, 2, 3…if you present more posters’ e.g. bbbb-smith-john-1.
In case of presenting videos in your poster name the video files similarly as your poster and add –video-’numbering’ e.g. bbbb-smith-john-1-video-1. In this case provide the original PPT file and the video files instead of PDF file.
4. Poster files should be sent by e-mail to the Conference Office (abstract@7thbbbb.com)
until 20 September, 2017.
