2017 Digital Poster Program

Following an overwhelming response of submissions to the call for abstracts, LASA have introduced a Digital Poster Program that will allow high calibre projects to be showcased as part of this year’s program. Delegates will be able to view the posters on their personal devices and on large digital screens throughout the venue.

The inclusion of digital posters is an integral part of the Congress program and gives presenters a greater opportunity to effectively convey information that may not be possible through a traditional printed poster.

Audience members will be able to contact poster presenters via the LASA Events app, should they wish to discuss a presentation further.
