We would also like to invite you to bring along a scientific poster to display at the conference. If you have a poster which has been presented at a previous conference or have not done so before, please feel free to bring one along as we want to encourage you to share your experiences and knowledge with your fellow colleagues. A prize for the Best Poster will also be awarded.
