ESOT is introducing a new way to present and listen to Poster presentations. The ePoster Lounge is based on your individual preferences. All the posters are available in the All-ESOT App. When you find any you are interested in, you can book an appointment with any poster author listed in the program.

As soon as the presenter accepts, a time slot is set and a confirmation sent. You will meet in the ePoster Lounge (Panorama Hall, located on the top floor of the venue) at your designated ePoster gate for a fifteen-minute screen-assisted presentation.

The lounge has multiple ePoster gates and you can also review which presentations are live or about to start on the Boarding Screen.

Take advantage of the ePoster Lounge at ESOT Brussels 2015 as an occasion to meet known and new peers and to have a fruitful and memorable congress.
