Posters at the 8th International Barcode of Life Conference will be presented digitally online, and on eight standalone kiosks at the conference venue. If your abstract has been accepted also for a lightning talk, you should prepare a 3-minute oral presentation in addition to your e-Poster.

Please use the below guidelines when creating your poster and/or lightning presentation.
