In 2016, ILC is returning to paper poster format for presentation, but will also be making posters available electronically via ePoster kiosks in the congress hall and online on the LiverTree™.
All accepted authors are required to prepare their paper poster and submit ePosters.
EASL will also be providing increased opportunities for you to interact with attendees and to gain added exposure for your research.
What will be on offer in 2016?
EASL will present the latest scientific data in the field on boards in the Exhibition (Hall 8.1) from 08:00-18:00 on:
Paper posters will change every day, so visit each day to see the new data on display! There are approximately 500 poster boards to view.
An entire row of poster boards will be dedicated to late-breaker abstract data. These will be on display from Thursday to Saturday and will not change.
Poster presenters are encouraged to be present next to their board during the breaks for discussions with delegates.

Throughout the congress week, electronic posters will be accessible on plasma screens at the EASL booth (Hall 8.0) Wednesday 13 April to Sunday 17 April, and in the paper poster area (Hall 8.1) Thursday 14 April to Saturday 16 April.
Unlike the paper posters which are only displayed on 1 day, all ePosters are available every day, Wednesday 13 April to Sunday 17 April, on multiple screens throughout the congress venue, and simultaneously on the LiverTree™.
Delegates are encouraged to use the ILC 2016 Congress app to submit requests to poster authors. Arrange a ‘face-to-face’ meeting with any poster author to talk about research and findings.
Poster presenters and delegates will meet in Hall 8.0 at the EASL booth for a discussion around the ePoster of interest. Other congress delegates will be able to see when such meetings are scheduled and can join in at the assigned ePoster station on the EASL booth.
