- Please don't remove your poster before the end of the conference. The posters are an important part of the scientific program and should be displayed the whole time. Please remove your poster on Thursday, November 07, after the closing session. Posters remaining after the conference will be discarded.
- How to find the place where your poster should be mounted: In the poster area you will find a poster list for orientation. In addition, a sign on each poster wall will indicate the author’s name, poster title, and poster number. For your poster’s number please refer to the conference program. If you have difficulties finding “your” poster board, please contact one of our staff members and we will be happy to assist you.
At the SWC 2019/ SHC 2019 we offer you the opportunity to record a short video 2- 3 minute presentation about your poster which will be posted on the ISES YouTube channel. The video will be available to you afterwards to share and use as your personal resource. You can find different examples on how this was done at our most recent conference, EuroSun 2018, here.
