Your poster will be displayed on both electronic (ePosters) and paper posters at ILC 2018.

Paper posters will be displayed from Thursday 12 to Saturday 14 April in hall 7.2.

ePosters will be made available throughout the week via ePoster terminals (hall 7.2 & 7.3), in the ILC mobile app and online on the Liver Tree™.

Your poster may be presented in different formats. See what is on offer in 2018!

EASL will offer:

  • Free printing of accepted paper posters
  • Free delivery to the congress venue
  • Free hanging and display of abstracts in the poster board area
  • Free publishing of your ePoster on the LiverTreeTM

All accepted authors are required to prepare their paper poster and submit their ePoster by 15 March 2018.

All authors are required to use the EASL online poster platform to submit their poster (view poster templates) to benefit from the free printing, delivery, and hanging.

Instructions for poster submission have been sent to authors of accepted abstracts. Further instructions, as well as the poster submission platform link, will be sent by 15 February. For technical support please contact the poster support team at

Authors will be able to recover their poster at the end of their presentation day from 17:00 to 17:30. All unremoved posters will be dismantled and destroyed by on-site staff after 17:30.

Important deadlines:

  • Poster submission platform opens: 15 February 2018
  • Deadline for poster submission: 15 March 2018

Posters submitted after 15 March 2018 will not be printed nor delivered to the venue. At the end of the ePoster submission process, you will be asked to validate the content of the poster that will be printed. Once you have validated the poster, no further changes will be possible in the printed version. However, changes to the ePoster will still be possible until 09 April 2018. Any reprint will be charged to the poster submitter.

Authors who do not comply with the deadlines should print their poster, deliver and hang it by their own means at the congress centre. On-site printing will be available at the presenters’ expenses (2 to 3 hours for printing and delivery to the venue). On-site, please go to the poster help-desk in hall 7.3.

ePoster connect


You may be asked by a delegate, using the ePoster connect feature on the ILC 2018 congress app, to participate in a ‘face-to-face’ meeting to talk about your research and findings. Poster presenters and delegates will meet at the allocated ePoster screen in the the EASL education zone (hall 7.2) or in hall 7.3 for a discussion around the ePoster of their interest. Other congress delegates will be able to see when such meetings are scheduled via the ILC 2018 app and can join in at the assigned ePoster station. 

Poster presenters are therefore encouraged to download the ILC 2018 Congress app to receive presentation requests from delegates. 

Look for ePoster connect on your app and follow-up on all presentation requests!

Rules and design tips

Poster board size: 140 cm wide x 90 cm high (landscape format only).

Please ensure that your poster does not exceed the stated size.

EASL encourages you to use the poster templates provided (valid for paper posters and electronic posters). Please note:

  • Paperboard format (all posters submitted before 15 March 2018 will be printed and shipped directly to the venue where they will be displayed on poster boards on their attributed day)
  • Each poster will be on display for 1 day only. Poster presenters will need to check the online programme and the poster identification number (the first 3 letters indicate the day of the presentation. e.g. THU-001 = Thursday, board number 1).
  • Presenters are required to stand next to their posters during the designated lunch-time as well as during the morning and afternoon coffee breaks, for informal discussions, on their scheduled day.
  • All posters will be removed by the end of the day on which they are scheduled to be presented. Authors are invited to remove them from poster boards between 17:00-17:30. All unremoved posters will be dismantled and destroyed by onsite staff after 17:30.

Submission of the poster in electronic format (ePoster) is mandatory. Submitters of accepted abstracts will receive a notification by 22 January 2018 providing guidelines and instructions relating to ePoster preparation and presentation. ePoster submission platform will open 15 February 2018.

EASL encourages you to use the poster templates provided (valid for paper posters and electronic posters).

Your electronic poster will be available for continuous viewing throughout the congress in the mobile app, on the LiverTree™ and on dedicated terminals. Note that you will not be allowed to display your paper poster if you have not submitted your ePoster format prior to the congress.

You may be asked by a delegate using the ILC 2018 congress app to participate to a ‘face-to-face’ meeting with him to talk about your research and findings through the ePoster connect.

How do I know if I am part of the oral ePoster session or poster tour?

For either session, EASL office will inform you by email of your selection for presentation in the session by the end of March 2018.

How will I know if my poster has been awarded ‘Best Poster’?

One poster will be awarded to Young Investigators for each of the 6 ILC specialties shown below. You will be notified by the EASL Office ahead of the congress if you qualify.

Instructions for the preparation of posters

  • EASL encourages you to use the poster templates provided (valid for paper posters and electronic posters). Neverthless, use of templates is not mandatory and presenters are free to submit their own designs and colour schemes
  • It is mandatory that your poster format is 140cm wide x 90cm high (landscape style)
  • The following sections should appear in clearly differentiated blocks:
    • Title of the poster on the top of the poster
    • 1st author and other authors with institution below the title
    • Introduction and objectives
    • Methods
    • Results and Conclusions
    • References/Acknowledgements
  • Provide clear labels and headings for each section of your presentation to avoid confusion
  • The text, illustrations, etc should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters, we recommend the following layout:
    • Title between 80pt and 100pt
    • Institutions: between 30pt and 36pt
    • Text: 36-40pt; please use dark text colours on a light background or vice-versa
    • References: 24 – 30pt
  • Images, pictures and graphs – the suggested resolution is 300dpi or higher. To check that they appear correctly in the final version, zoom in to 200% and check all images, pictures, and graphs. It is better to use high quality images and graphs when creating the poster
  • Posters can be submitted in ppt or pdf format
  • For all posters submitted on time (15 March) on the ePoster submission platform, a discreet band at the bottom will be added, measuring 4cm containing the poster number, the abstract submission topic and 1st author and the poster printer logo
  • Once you have validated your poster for printing, no more changes will be allowed. Any reprint cost will be charged to the poster submitter
