Poster pitches

The poster pitches are meant to be either teasers or summaries of your poster, to attract an audience to your poster (which will be displayed later on the same day in the poster session). Poster pitches with odd submission IDs are presented on 22.8. at 14:30-15:00 and poster pitches with even submission IDs on 23.8. at 14:30-15:00. Pitches will be presented in an ascending order following the submission IDs. Poster pitches will be presented in the main hall (Stora salen). The pitch duration is a maximum of 2 minutes, and you can have 1-2 slides. The slides need to be uploaded the latest on the day before the pitch.
