Selected abstract submissions will be presented during Poster Sessions. Authors will present their research in a specific topic area, and presentations will be evaluated by experts in the field. The moderator will be on hand to facilitate audience questions.
Maximum size of the poster must be A0. Each poster must include text in a large enough font (~20 point font) to be read easily by attendees from a distance of 1 – 2 meters or more. Lettering on illustrations should be large and legible. Photographs should be a minimum of 10×20 cm. Material should be displayed in logical sequence (introduction, development, conclusion) and each sheet should be numbered.
Each poster session author will be provided with a poster board area and mounting pins. The board will indicate the poster number in upper right or left corner. Authors are responsible for mounting their posters the morning of their presentation and removing them as soon as the session ends. Posters left up past that time will be discarded.
Regulations of Science Sessions:
This year the presentation of the scientific work has been changed. The Organizing Committee of the International Biomedical Congress – Sofia believes that new rules stimulate the work with exceptionally great significance and presentations executed with precision, ability to keep the audience engaged and thrilled. The regulations are the following:
This year all active participants will have the change to take part of the congress with posters only! The posters will be evaluated in several rounds putting emphasis on the visual esthetics of the presented work, the presentation skills of the participant and the scientific significance of the research. The participants who proceed to the next round will be announced the day before.
- Day 1 (Nov 17th, 2017): All posters will be evaluated by a committee assessing the proper poster format, the quality of the illustrations/photos, the logical sequence of the research.
- Day 2 (Nov 18th, 2018): Based on the evaluation from the previous day, up to 20% of all posters (regardless of the topic) will proceed to the next round. During the day, participants will have the opportunity of presenting the research of their choosing. The jury will be evaluating presentation skills, ability to keep the audience engaged and, most importantly, the quality of the scientific research. Presentation time is 7 minutes and 2 minutes for questions.
- Day 3 (Nov 19th, 2017): During the final day of the congress the best 3 presentations will have the extremely honorable chance to talk about their research in front of all participants at the congress in an audience and share their outstanding work to as many colleagues as possible. Presentation time – 10 minutes.
The motivation behind the new regulations regarding the scientific program is the promotion and encouragement of conduction research and scientific work of value.
