poster sessions

A new approach to poster presentation that was introduced already in Kobe continue bringing good results also in Denver. 

Each poster presenter had a chance to present his work to a group of interested delegates. Chairs moderating each poster group also allowed time for discussion for each poster.

During the 4 days there were 2 poster sessions wherewe could hear about the following topics:

1. Day Topics: Craniofacial, Dysraphism, Functional, Spine, Vascular
