Poster presentation

Each poster presenter will be provided with a panel onto which the poster can be mounted at the beginning of the symposium (by 10am). The panel size will be provided later. All the materials needed for the mounting will be provided. The posters should have a title, and should state the authors and their affiliations.

The posters should be taken down at the end of the symposium, at 5pm.

Posters can be written in English or in Finnish.
