Dialogue sessions will allow authors to present their work in illustrative poster format and, as presenters, host a discussion with fellow experts during one of two dedicated sessions. Authors are expected to be present at their poster during their scheduled session in order to answer delegates’ questions.

Dialogue presenters will have access to a dedicated poster board as well as cocktail table and chairs in order to allow for an intimate discussion with delegates.

Posters must be in A0 format (33” x 47” or 841 mm x 1189 mm) and in portrait orientation, with the EVS33 logo in the upper left corner.
