Poster Session and Lightning Talk

All posters will be on display during the entire conference in the central hall of the conference, where attendees will converge for coffee breaks and lunch. The Poster Session will take place on Tuesday 14 May 2019. Authors of posters are requested to be near their poster to answer questions from the audience. The poster session is the perfect venue to share a provocative opinion, interesting, established or preliminary work, or a cool idea that will spark discussion.

To give posters maximum visibility, a Poster Lightening Talks session will be held on Tuesday 14 May before lunch in the main Auditorium. Each poster presenter will thus have the opportunity to grab the attention of conference attendees – one minute, one slide! Plan to be near your poster after the Lightning talk as interested attendees will come by to discuss your work.


In co-operation with the author, PRACE will publish the abstracts of the selected posters on the PRACE webpage  together with a photo and details of the presenter (name, institution, country, short biography.
