POSTERS
Click here to download the poster programme.
A “poster code on the programme” was assigned to the title of each poster to identify it. A “poster number on the poster board” was assigned to the title of each poster, this will help you locate your poster on the poster board.

Poster sessions will take place in the Auditorium Hall (ground floor). Each poster must be in LANDSCAPE format, printed, and should not be bigger than 80 cm high x 90 cm wide. Any poster printed in portrait or larger than 80 cm high x 90 cm wide may not be displayed at the congress. We recommend that posters are printed on paper, as cloth does not sufficiently attach to the boards.

The posters will be mounted on boards, tapes will be provided by ICPM. Each poster board is one-sided with two posters on the same side. The boards will be arranged in numerical order in the Auditorium hall, the numbers will be in the right-hand side of poster boards. Poster presenters are responsible for assembly and removal of own poster. The poster sessions have a designated time in which the poster presenters are requested to set up (please see the online poster programme as well as the printed programme you will find in your congress bag), be available at their poster to discuss their research with the meeting attendees (please see the online programme at a glance as well as the printed programme you will find in your congress bag), and to tear down (please see the online poster programme as well as the printed programme you will find in your congress bag). Please remove your poster promptly during the scheduled removal times. ICPM will not be responsible for any posters left in the exhibit area after the scheduled removal times.

Congress Dinner at Villa Finaly

The Congress Dinner will be held on Thursday the 12th September 2019 at 7.30 pm. The venue of the Congress Dinner is the Villa Finaly, a marvelous Villa built in 15 th century on the hills of Florence. The welcome drink and the buffet dinner will be served in the room Lully and in the garden.

Click here to read a brief history of the Villa.

The Villa Finaly was built on the hills of Fiesole in the fifteenth century. In 1864, when Florence became the capital of Italy, James of Rothschild, owner of a bank in Turin bought the Villa to sell it in 1866 to Baron Horace de Landau, the procurator of his bank. Baron Horace de Landau was one of the most important financiers of the Florentine Risorgimento movements and father of the Italian currency called lira. A man of great culture, a lover of art and books, he built one of the largest libraries in Europe with 60,000 volumes, the library is nowadays at the second-floor of the Villa (today the Richelieu room). It was considered one of the most beautiful and important private libraries in Europe with a full-time private librarian.

The Villa was donated to the University of Paris by the Landau-Finaly family in 1953. In the 1990s, the 13 universities of Paris and Île de France, heirs of the ancient University of Paris, became owners of the Villa and decided to restore it in order to return it to the ancient splendor. The restored Villa was inaugurated on May 31, 2000.

Today, the heart of the Villa is still the eight-columned rotunda, surmounted by a dome and built on a courtyard dating back to the 16th century. The rotunda was built by the architect and urbanist Giuseppe Poggi in 1859. From the rotunda, you enter the reception rooms that then overlook the Italian garden. The reception rooms include the large Michelangelo gallery, covered with trompe-l'œil frescoes, with embedded columns and Venetian marble floor; the ancient music hall decorated with friezes and representations of muses, today called Sala Lulli; the Bernini living room, finely painted by frappe and trompe-l'œil. In the opposite wing the ancient stables, today called Leonardo da Vinci hall.
