The abstracts will be reviewed by the Scientific Organizing Committee. You will receive an e-mail notification and will be informed of acceptance and selection for talk or poster presentation. 

The posters will be showcased in two poster sessions. The authors of the best poster abstracts will have the chance to present their posters as flash talks in the plenary sessions before the poster sessions.

Posters should be printed in DIN A0, which is 84.1 cm (width) x 118.9 cm (height). Poster stripes and pins for poster setup will be provided at the conference venue.

The best posters and the best talk will be awarded at the end of the UCT Science Day!
