The workshop will use a virtual poster session format with posters presented electronically. Each poster is assigned to a specific poster session. Submitted posters will be made available on the website during the workshop to the attendees. Poster sessions will be assigned a moderator to facilitate discussion and manage the schedule and flow. Posters will be presented in the order per the poster agenda, with the moderator controlling the "sharing" of posters from the website poster gallery. Presenters that are not available during their presentation time will be bypassed and the session will proceed with the next poster in order. Each poster presenter will be given 3 minutes to highlight their poster. Questions will be facilitated through the virtual meeting platform.

Preparing your poster

Posters should be prepared and formatted as a single PDF.   The workshop is not prescribing a specific format for the posters, however, we recommend that posters include sufficient detail to enable browsing of posters by attendees with good understanding of content if viewed outside the poster session. Poster presenters should follow their institutional guidelines for public release. We recommend following these guidelines:

  • Place the title of your paper and your paper number prominently at the top of the poster. Indicate ① The abstract's presentation number, ② title, and ③ authors' names
  • Highlight the authors' names, email addresses, and address information in case a viewer is interested in contacting for more information.
  • Prepare all diagrams or charts neatly and legibly beforehand in a size sufficient to be viewed online.
  • Use different colors and textures/symbols for each line or bar contained in your graph or chart.
  • Organize the presentation so it is clear, orderly, and self-explanatory. You have complete freedom in displaying your information in figures, tables, text, photographs, etc. Use squares, rectangles, circles, etc., to group similar ideas. Avoid cluttering your poster with too much text. Label different elements as numerically or alphabetically (1, 2, 3; A, B, C; etc.) making it easier for a viewer to parse your display.
  • Include the background of your research followed by results and conclusions.
