The 11th edition of the International Symposium on Stem Cell Therapy and Cardiovascular Innovations will hold a special session named “Poster Exhibition”, in which research teams involved in the topic of the Symposium will have the opportunity of presenting selected parts of their work to the audience.
In order to guarantee the quality of the abstracts, a Review Committee will select those submitted works suitable for the session. The abstracts considered of special interest will be integrated in the Poster Exhibition (29th May 2014), where the works will be shown in Poster format. The authors of the two best posters of the session, according to the Review Committee judgement, will be invited to present their work in the opening session the following day (30th May 2014) in oral presentation format (slides), and will receive the Poster Award (600€ each).
