We invite the authors to scrupulously check the duration of their presentations. Moderators will strictly respect the scheduled times.

We are not responsible for any posters left after the deadlines indicated.

We suggest to write the text of the poster in English to allow reading to foreign participants.

The Poster must include: Title, Names of authors and affiliations (with the reference of the Email of a contact person), Introduction, Materials and methods, Results, Discussion and Bibliographical references. A clear and concise style is welcome and, if possible, the presentation of the results in graphical and/or tabular form. If there are photographs of people, these must be unrecognizable.
