You can submit a proposal for a poster presentation (an abstract of 300 words) through the CMS. If your proposal is accepted, you have to register for the Conference by 1 July 2011, so that your poster is scheduled for presentation in the posters area of the conference.

These poster presentations can not be included in the Conference Proceedings. They will be included in the on-line version of the program and the PDF version which will be made available for download after the conference.
