Posters will be on display on 16th March only.

Format: paper posters, size 70×100 cm, vertical (portrait). They will be displayed in the foyer of the University of Milan located between the Main Hall entrance and the Coffee Break cloister.

Poster manning is possible during the two coffee breaks (10:30 am and 3:30 pm). Posters are visible from the cloister and delegates will be able to take their coffee and walk around the posters during the break time. Poster presenters should come to the Secretariat on the first day to collect the number and material to display their posters. They should remove it at the end of the day. No handouts should be displayed with the poster. Poster panels are not provided with pockets for such handouts. If you have any leaflets or handouts, these should be placed on the Future meeting table in the foyer, a few meters away from the Poster area.



Owing to the Winter Season Holidays, the abstract submission deadline has been postponed to

Monday 8th January 2018 (h 23:45 CET).

Don’t miss this date to make sure that your abstract is selected for the Oral Communication Sessions.

We welcome basic and clinical science abstracts about inhibitors in coagulation disorders.
All submissions will be peer-reviewed by the Scientific Committee. They will be evaluated for their originality, novelty and outcome. The best abstracts from the Academia and independent researchers will be selected as oral communications and will find space in the Young Scientist Walking sessionHow much young? At least one of the authors (the presenter) should be less than 36 years old.  How much walking? Presentations will be held next to the Plenary hall in a very noticeable area.  Attendees will be free to stand or walk in front of the stage listening to the presentations and sipping drinks, coffee or tea.

Abstracts from the industry are equally most welcome, and will compete for quality and innovation to gain space in the Industry Research Symposium where a selection of best abstracts from the industry will be presented as oral communications. The Symposium will be held in the Plenary hall.  If your abstract is intended for the Industry Research oral communication symposium, please enter the words INDUSTRY ABSTRACT at the top of your abstract.  Those abstracts that are not marked in this way and contain a mixed authorship (independent and industry) may be evaluated as academia or industry at the discretion of the Scientific Committee.
