How long will I have to stay with my poster and how long will I speak ?

To preserve the professional atmosphere, you should plan to stay with your poster for the entire session. Reviewers and others attendees are traveling between posters throughout the session, and remaining with your poster during the entire hour will give them more time to speak with you about your project.

Can I leave the room once my oral presentation is done ?

To preserve the professional atmosphere, please do not leave the session before it ends, even if you have already given your presentation.
