  • Your help in saving costs substantially by avoiding empty poster boards is highly appreciated.

Please also note that:

  • Authors who do not notify the organising office of their cancellation ahead of the meeting and fail to present their poster, will be banned from presenting an abstract at ESHG 2023.
  • The presentation at the conference (onsite or online) is the condition for the publication of the abstract in the electronic supplement of the European Journal of Human Genetics.

Poster details

  • Only posters in portrait format can be mounted.
  • The usable surface on the poster board will be 90 cm width x 150 cm height (approx. 35 x 59 inches).
  • Only adhesive tape can be used to mount posters. Material will be available onsite.
  • In compliance with EACCME regulations, authors are requested to disclose conflicts of interest on their poster.
  • When presenting data and health information (including photos) all presenters must have informed consent compliant with human subjects and applicable regulations, and comply with GDPR.
  • Posters should stimulate discussion, not give a long presentation. Therefore, keep text to a minimum, emphasize graphics and make sure every item is necessary.
  • Include the title and poster number of your presentation. The ESHG will not post the abstract titles on display boards.
  • The lettering of the poster heading should be at least 2.5 cm high. Detailed information can be provided in a smaller size, but remember that your text should be easily readable from distances of at least 1 meter.
  • If you wish, you may include a QR code to a handout on the poster.
  • You may also wish to provide business cards/contact information.
  • Your headshot photograph on the poster may facilitate contacts during the conference.
  • For additional assistance in preparing your poster, there are a number of excellent resources available online. For more information, type “scientific poster preparation guidelines” into your internet search engine.
  • Being an organisation of genetic experts, ESHG wishes to draw your attention on the correct representation of the DNA Helix on your poster, namely the sense of rotation, which has been frequently wrong in the past. Please see the following picture for a correct representation: DNA Helix-Correct Presentation

E-poster presentation

In addition to a paper poster, hybrid poster presenters are requested to upload a PDF version of their poster to the virtual platform prior to the conference. This will make your poster available to ESHG online participants until September 15, 2022.
