Information about the Poster Symposium Spring 2023

The poster symposium will take place at VilVite on May 16th, 2023.

The following courses will be attending: BIO219, BIO241, MOL270, SDG215, BIO299 and MOL231.

All posters will be on display in the mezzanine area. We will start with the presentations/pitches in the Auditorium (time will be announced). Each student/group will be given one minute (60 seconds) to pitch their poster.

We will provide a detailed and updated program for the event prior to the symposium .

Poster format

A1 landscape or A1 portrait are the only 2 formats that will be accepted for printing. Here you will find Photoshop, Illustrator and Powerpoint files that you may use when designing your poster (these files have the right proportions and show the areas (in gray, top and bottom) that should not be used when designing the poster - NB: do not forget to remove the gray banners before finalizing the poster).

Posters have to be sent as PDF (in the right size – A1), no other program or file format will be accepted.

All posters will be given a QR code with a link to bioPITCH.

Deadline for sending in the posters: Friday May 5th at 12:00.

It is the course leader's responsibility to gather the PDF files and send them all in a single email (and in the right format - see above) to no later than this deadline.

Course responsible must communicate this with their students, and gather all posters from their course. If you want time to look through the posters first, you must give the students a deadline that fits your schedule prior to this date). It can be a good idea to inform the students about this deadline at the start of the course.

Posters will be printed as a single batch and will also be available on
