Poster pitches

Some students’ posters have been selected for poster pitch presentation.

The poster pitch is an opportunity to attract delegates to your poster.

During selected oral sessions 5-8 abstracts will have the opportunity to pitch their poster to the attendees of the session.

Poster pitches are meant to be a VERY SHORT (1 minute MAX, ONLY 2 slides including the title slide) introduction to posters. The author should focus only on the main aim of the research and only mention the key findings. The purpose of the minute pitch is to stimulate the audience to view the poster and to discuss the research with the author during the breaks or poster session.



2 slides – 1 minute

The information regarding the poster pitch timeslot will be communicated to authors by email, including the date, time and room of the poster pitch.

Prepare only 2 slides in pptx format. The first slide should contain the title and ID of your poster, the authors and their affiliations. The second one should be the content you want to tell the audience about.

Send it to us by email ( before 17 May. Please, title your message “Slide for poster pitch” and label your file with your name and oral session (e.g. JuanTenorio_O-02.pptx).


At the beginning of the poster pitch session, the chair will ask the poster pitchers on stage. Make sure you are sitting in the front row close to the stage.

Poster pitchers have 1 minute to pitch their abstract. The session chair will stop the presenter after 1 minute.
