Poster session

Organisation of the remote poster session

The participants of the User Meeting are strongly encouraged to submit posters on their recent work using data collected at the ESRF and to participate in the poster session which is an excellent opportunity to discuss their latest results.

The Poster Session will take place on Tuesday 8 February (13:15 – 14:15 CET) during the plenary session and will be split into two sessions of 30mn each (13:15 - 13:45 and 13:45 - 14:15 CET).

The participants can also participate in the Best Poster Prize contest.

The posters will be displayed according to the following list of topics/fields of research:

  • Complex Systems and Biomedical Sciences
  • Electronic Structure, Magnetism & Dynamics
  • Matter at Extremes
  • Structural Biology
  • Structure of Materials
  • X-Ray NanoProbe
  • Surfaces and Interfaces
  • Industry
  • Beamline Instruments & Methods
  • Other

Each 30mn Poster Session will bring together posters from the 10 different topics/fields of research, so that the poster presenters and attendees will have the opportunity to exchange with scientists of different scientific communities.

One Zoom meeting will be scheduled for each poster session. Inside each meeting we will create a breakout room for each poster submitted where the author will present their poster. Attendees will be able to interact directly with the author of the poster and other attendees.

From the User Meeting lobby, participants have access to the virtual poster booths and to the two Poster Sessions through the "Poster Hall" tab or the “Schedule” tab in the top navigation bar on the event platform.

For additional information, participants and poster presenters should consult this page "Instructions for Participants".

Poster Booth

For the User Meeting 2022, the posters will be presented in virtual poster booths created and easily customized by the poster presenters with logos, video, images. The poster booths can be accessed and visited by attendees starting from 4 February and during the three days of the event, at any time outside the two poster sessions. 

Help on how to create you poster booth can be found here under the section 3 "Instructions for Poster Presenters". An email will be sent to you when the plateform will be open for you to start creating your poster booth.
