The main projector’s native resolution is 1920 x 1200 (16:10 format) but will work equally well with 1920 x 1080 (16:9 format).

A limited number of ePosters will be displayed per poster session. At abstract submission, there is an option if you wish to be considered for an ePoster. 

Suggestions for an effective ePoster

ePosters are intended to provide a dynamic display of information that is not possible with a traditional printed poster. Embedding multimedia content, along with static elements such as titles, logos, and summaries, would be a good way to convey information. Examples of dynamic visual elements include videos, slide shows, animated charts or graphs, scrolling text, or 3D rotation of a model. Here's an example of an effective e-poster.

The intention of an ePoster does not include attracting visitors to stay for a long oral, video, or slideshow presentation. Display elements can either loop for a minute or less, or be activated and controlled by the poster presenter on command. Remember, you are to interact with those who are interested in your ePoster, not give a presentation to an audience.

ePosters, are meant to present new information. The attendees will benefit from interacting with you, not viewing a website that they can access without going to the conference. But this does not mean you can’t use HTML, CSS, Java, Flash, etc. for your presentation.

Please bring your own laptop and dongle, if needed. 

Please do not include audio on ePosters.
