All other contributions to the conference are available as Poster presentations which can be viewed through the poster e-hall, titled Posters. Posters are divided into 4 days according to the conference schedule only to mimic a real conference environment.

The presenting authors are advised to be available at these dates and times through e-mail, or to set up their own Q&A sessions, but this is not mandatory. Due to time zone differences, the authors may choose their own day and time for availability. To contact authors of a specific poster, simply use the contact form accompanying each poster.
