ePoster Reviews

In addition to the usual ePoster programme, there are new ePoster review sessions this year where a moderator will discuss a series of ePosters that are all related to a specific topic. This new format will take place in both 30-minute and 1-hour timelines. You can see the overview of these sessions in the tables below.
