ICBD 2020 Poster Presentation Guidelines

This year ICBD is changing its poster presentation style to an e-poster display. 

All selected posters will be presented as e-posters. Your poster will be shown electronically at various electronic screens in the poster display hall. They will be available for viewing during tea/coffee breaks and during selected lunch hours. The poster session will be opened on February 24th 2020,  following the opening ceremonies. 

Below please see the guidelines for preparing you e-posters. Once completed, submit by February 20, 2020 using this link: https://slma.lk/icbd2020/presentations/

Additionally, feel free to bring printed slides to distribute in the e-poster hall.
