Short video: you can choose to present your work as a video (max 2 minutes) which will be uploaded on the ISS-TXRF website. Your colleagues will have the opportunity to have a look at your video during the “virtual coffee breaks” or “poster session” and also after the lessons.

You can choose the dimensions of your poster and also the orientation (vertical, horizontal). We suggest you to prepare a poster which could be readable on a normal computer screen of 15”-17” in order to give the opportunity to read it easily. However, if you prefer to prepare larger ones, it is not a problem.

At the end of the Summer School, the Scientific Committee will award the best presentation in each category (poster, video and oral presentation). GOOD LUCK!!!
