    Poster Display & Poster Prizes
    > The poster session is an essential component of the EPS HEP conference. Posters are both a good complement to the oral presentations in the parallel sessions and a a good opportunity for exposure for younger colleagues. This year, a total of up to 200 posters will be on display, and each poster will be guaranteed a 2 page contribution in the conference proceedings.
    > Beginning with this year's conference, the organizers are establishing three "poster prizes", which will consist in a certificate and a symbolic cash award. Nominations for the prizes will be made by the session conveners, the Local Organizing Committee and the International Organizing Committee.
    The prizes will be awarded on Wednesday July 27. The posters will be on display at the conference center for the entire duration of the conference: poster installation will commence on Thursday July 21 in the morning, while the dismounting will take place on Wednesday July 27 in the afternoon.
    > The poster format is strictly portrait A0. Participants are kindly asked to bring with them a A0 printed copy of their posters as no poster printers will be available at the conference. To conform to the rules of the conference center, poster fixations will be provided to the participants at the location of the display. Personal fixation mechanisms cannot be used.
    Participants in the poster session will soon be invited to upload an electronic version of their posters [in pdf format] on the conference indico site for public remote access. The abstract numbers on indico will also serve as the poster ID numbers which will mark the poster display location.

    > This year's EPS HEP conference promises to be a big success. Indeed, the number of registered participants is very high, while several new physics results are expected.
    > Over the past two weeks the Local Organizing Committee has received numerous calls for last-minute help with securing accommodation during the EPS HEP conference, especially for the Saturday joint ECFA-EPS session. The combination of the very large number of participants and the Tour de France [a cycling competition that draws large public crowds] in coincidence with the joint session on Saturday has made getting a convenient hotel booking for Friday and Saturday quite difficult. Even if so far all the requests for accommodation could be met, in view of possible further last-minute requests it was decided to organize a webcast of the joint ECFA-EPS session on Saturday. More information can be found here. After discussing the matter with the International Organizing Committee, it was decided to exceptionally extend the webcast into the following week for the plenary sessions as well.
