Pecha Kucha Session

This session is designed to provide poster presenters with a chance to give a short presentation based on their posters at ISBGMO14. Ten to twelve posters among those received will be selected. Authors will be invited to make a five minute presentation using a maximum of five slides. No time for questions will be given. After all the presentations are delivered, those willing to get more information on the posters will have the chance to do so during the poster session.
