At the 8th WoCoVA there will be, next to scientific presentations, many posters with vascular access scientific information. We will use a system with electronic posters. This means that you can watch all posters on any electronic device, and you can do this already before the congress starts! Next to this we will have the posters presented by its scientist during the 8th WoCoVA.

The list with all posters can be viewed here


A few days before the congress, you can visit and view all posters on our ePoster website.

Poster presentation program

Please find below an overview of the poster presentations of the 8th WoCoVA. The poster presentations will take place every day during the lunchbreak and on the 17th of April during the afternoon networking break in the South Hall Foyer.

Each presentation is 6 minutes.
