Poster Material Submission

Poster PDF File

Poster PDF files must be uploaded to the submission site by Thursday, 1 June 2023. All poster presenters, whether you are attending in person or virtually, must submit a one-page PDF file. Once you are logged into the platform, please update your profile as this will be the platform that will be used for the conference and attendees will see these details.

Click the Edit Abstract button to review/update content. Click the Authors button to review the list of authors for accuracy. This information will be displayed to conference attendees and the author information will be included in the published abstract book, so it is important that the content is correct.

To upload your Poster FDF file, click the icon for Poster PDF. Next, select Upload File, and upload your one-page poster PDF file.  

Optional Voice Over Recording 

Poster presenters can prepare a 3-5 minute video to upload to the virtual platform discussing the poster in addition to the poster PDF file. If you would like to include a virtual voice over recording of your poster, you can upload one to the submission site following the steps above. Click the Record/Upload Presentation button. If you are recording via the X-CD platform, you can begin by clicking the Record Presentation Video button. If you used a different program to record your presentation, you can upload the MP4 file by clicking the Upload Presentation Video button. 

Poster Design

Below are links to videos by Mike Morrison, a researcher who developed a poster design that is highly efficient at conveying the main conclusion from his study while still providing more detail for those who want it. The added benefit is that he is able to create a poster faster with this design than with the traditional "wall of text" format.

While Morrison's Original design is horizontal, it could be adapted to a vertical design like the example on the right.
