For Poster Presenters

All poster authors have been emailed information about their poster, including the session they will be presenting and the assigned poster reference. The poster reference will be used to help people navigate the poster hall. Please note this poster reference is different to the paper number that was assigned to your abstract during the submission process.

If you have not received an email with this information please contact

Poster presentation times

All posters should be on display for both poster sessions. Presenters are requested to leave their posters up as long as possible to allow delegates time to read the posters outside the timetabled sessions.

There will be two poster sessions, both held in Event Halle at the Congress Center Basel.

  • Poster Session A will be held on Wednesday 6 December at 17:45-19:45.
    • Part 1: 17:45-18:45
    • Part 2: 18:45-19:45
  • Poster Session B will be held on Thursday 7 December at 17:45-19:45.
    • Part 1: 17:45-18:45
    • Part 2: 18:45-19:45

Presenters are requested to be available by their posters to discuss their work, particularly during their allocated timeslots (you can find this information on the email sent to you).

Poster Dimensions

In the poster hall, poster boards will be provided. The poster board surface area is 160 cm (height) x 120 cm (width). We recommend size A0 for all posters (841 x 1189mm; size E by American National Standards Institute) in a portrait orientation.

You will be able to mount your poster using poster hangers, which will be supplied. Watch the video to learn how to attach your poster to the poster board. This video and additional assistance will be available when presenters are putting up posters.

Your place among the poster boards will be indicated by the poster reference listed in your title and also available in the programme. This information will be available as we approach the Symposium.

Information and 'tips and tricks' for making poster presentations can be found in our Poster Submission Guidelines.

Virtual Poster Hall

We also ask that all in-person poster presenters upload their poster (as a PDF) to the virtual Poster hall for our online delegates. The virtual poster hall (with your poster PDF  and abstract) will be available for the duration of the event and up to 3 months after the event for registered delegates to view. There will be no dedicated poster session, but virtual delegates will be able to leave questions and comments for author(s) to come back to during or after the event.

The Poster Submission portal is now open and we ask that this PDF is uploaded to our Poster Submission portal by 15 November 2023. You can find out more information about how to upload your poster PDF in our Poster Submission Guidelines.

If you do not upload your poster PDF by this deadline, the abstract will be removed from the virtual poster hall. By submitting your poster PDF, you confirm that you are giving permission for the MND Association to share your materials at the Symposium and agree that it can be used as part of the 'catch up' material for up to 3 months after the event as well as being shared across the Associations digital channels.
