What exactly means the deadline of May 31?
May 31 is the deadline for requests of oral contributions to a session. The session convener will review your request and schedule it as an oral or accept it as a poster contribution.
You can also request a poster instead of an oral.
The advantage of submitting it before May 31 is that you will be notified by June 12 of acceptance and your contribution will be immediately listed in the online program.

What if I miss May 31?
Don't panic. You can submit posters until November 1.

When will my late poster contribution appear online?
As soon as it is reviewed by the session conveners. The latest deadline for reviewing late poster contributions is November 7.
If this is too late, make sure you submit your contribution before May 31.
