Different kinds of presentations:

Best of the Best

Out of all the submitted abstracts, the top 3 has been selected to enter the compitition to become 'Best ERC abstract of 2016'.
These abstracts are presented in a dedicated session and judges by senior scientists.

 

Oral presentations

The oral presentations all have a code starting with 'AS', followed by a number.
The number is not a hierarchy in quality, it just serves to find the correct abstract faster.

These abstracts are presented oraly during the 'Free Paper Sessions" in one of the break-out rooms. 
The presenter will present his/her work and afterwards there is time for some questions/discussion.

Poster presentations

Poster presentations all have a code starting with 'AP', followed by a number.
The number is not a hierarchy in quality, it just serves to find the correct abstract faster.

These abstracts are presented oraly during breaks at the exhibition as digital posters. 
The presenter will give a short presentation of his/her work and afterwards there is time for some questions/discussion.

The digital posters can be browsed during the entire congress.

Presentation and evaluation of the abstract

Evaluation of the abstracts will be carried out by the Scientific Committee.

Based on the number and content of the abstracts received, the Scientific Committee will assign the contribution to be presented in oral or poster format. The preference expressed will be respected if possible.

The presentation of an abstract, either orally or as a poster, requires the registration of at least one of the authors for the Congress.

Abstract submission deadline has expired.

This is a system not linked to the ERC database so you need to register again.
