    4. The poster must correspond to the summary submitted and accepted by the Scientific Committee.

    5. The poster must be written in Spanish, Portuguese or English.

    6. The colour scheme contributes to the good design of the poster. Choose neutral or grey tones for the background which facilitate the reading and highlights images.
