No. It is okay for just one of you to upload the abstract as long as the rest of the members in the group indicate who will upload it.

I have a poster for my presentation - how can I print it?

You are responsible for any material you would like to bring to the conference. DTU has poster printing facilities at the Library, where the conference is held, as well as in building 414 and 116. We recommend you to print good time ahead of the conference and to find a fellow student to help you.
