It is each author's responsibility to remove his/her poster immediately at the end of the session. E-MRS assumes no responsibility for posters left up after this time. Attendees can preview the posters during the morning, before the formal presentation.

There is no printing office on site but, if necessary, there are several shops within walking distance from the Conference venue.
