Poster Guidelines

Posters in each Congress topic will be displayed during the whole Congress period. Presenting authors should be available at their poster to explain and discuss their work to interested participants during the attended poster session slot of 12:30–14:00 on the day allocated to their abstract topic/number. The timetable for attended posters will be displayed in the Programme section of the Congress website towards the end of April.


Posters will be displayed in portrait format.

The dimensions of the poster should not exceed 90 cm wide x 120 cm high.

Abstract title, author(s) and affiliation(s) should appear on top of the poster.

The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters.


Authors are responsible for setting up their own poster as soon as possible after official Congress opening and removing their poster at the end of the whole event.

Posters must be hung at the board number corresponding to your abstract notation in the Congress website and app.

Tacks will be available at the poster helpdesk for the mounting of posters.

There are stewards and a poster helpdesk to assist you and all participants looking for your poster.

Finding and viewing posters

Accepted abstracts will be available online just prior to the conference on the Congress website (via the abstract search tool), the Congress app, and, if submitted by the March deadline, the FEBS Open Bio supplement of abstracts, to enable participants to comfortably decide which posters to visit.

In addition, delegates will be invited to upload their poster to the Congress website as a pdf from their participant account from a few days before the event, to be viewable by other delegates only for a short time around the time of the event.  More details on this possibility will follow.

FEBS Press Poster Prizes

FEBS Press 'Poster of the Day' prizes for outstanding scientific posters at the FEBS Congress will be awarded by The FEBS Journal, FEBS Letters, Molecular Oncology and FEBS Open Bio on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of the event – and from these, four overall journal poster prize winners will be selected to receive a prize of €200 at the Closing Session. More details will follow.

Poster printing

The Congress organizers are offering the possibility to print your poster out onsite. To avoid carrying the poster all the way from your home and any possible damage or loss, you may send us your poster via e-mail and we will print it out for you. You can then easily pick it up at the poster helpdesk onsite.

Authors interested in the printing service should send their posters in PDF format (printing quality) to email. Once your poster is checked, our personnel will get back to you with a confirmation. The price for the printing service:

Posters sent in advance (received and paid by 5th July): 45 EUR
