The “CHNT Poster Session” is a thematically “open” call, only limited by the scope of the CHNT. The work will be presented as a poster during the entire conference and the authors are invited to give a short presentation of their project.

The format of this session shall give especially young scientists the opportunity to perform their “first steps” into the scientific community but, of course, it is not limited to those.

Every year, the scientific committee of CHNT is looking forward to the great and outstanding posters and is glad to honor the “best poster” as one of the highlights of the conference, the “Best Poster Award”. The winner of this year’s award is allowed to publish the proposed work as long paper in the conference’s proceedings.
