Final check and certification

Please ensure that the presenting author’s name is correct upon submission. It is the responsibility of the presenting author to ensure that this is kept up to date, in case of changes.

Certificates will not be awarded to authors that are not present during their poster session at IMMEM XIII, or whose posters do not comply with the requirements for size and format. For those with an oral presentation, the presentation slides must be stored on the Presentation computer, in order for a certificate to be awarded.
