Instructions for E-Poster Presenters

E-Poster Discussion Sessions

Certain E-Posters will be scheduled in dedicated E-Poster Discussion Sessions.  The presenters in these sessions will upload a 1-page E-Poster file to the general poster gallery (see instructions below) and also prepare a short PPT about their abstract to share during the Poster Discussion Session

This will be a live session. Each presenter will have 5 minutes to share their presentation live. The first slide should contain the faculty disclosure.

E-Poster Viewing

E-Poster viewing presentations will not have a dedicated session time and will be available for viewing through the poster gallery in the virtual platform.
The participants will be able to contact the poster presenter through the virtual platform.

Only E-Posters of registered participants will be displayed in the E-Poster Gallery.

Deadline for uploading your E-Poster: 6 September, 2021.

Presenters will receive a dedicated link to upload their posters via email in due course.

How can I secure my E-Poster presentation when it is online?

The copying and recording of content presented is prohibited. Presenters are encouraged to indicate in the content of their presentation presented shall not be shared or copied.
To aid in this, a digital graphic image may be incorporated in the poster. Click here to download.

Presenters may also secure a Digital Object Identifier (DoI) for their presentation by uploading it to an open data sharing repository for posters and slides.

Interaction with E-Poster Presenters

E-Poster presenters have the option to include a URL link to their own online personal e-meeting rooms (via Zoom, GoToMeeting, WebEx, Microsoft Teams, etc.) or institutional e-meeting rooms together with their availability, where they can then meet other delegates for interaction and discussion. You can create free zoom meeting rooms here: The presenter takes responsibility for these third-party links and the Organisers are unable to monitor them.

Messaging E-Poster Presenters

Within the platform, there is a messaging service to facilitate scientific exchange.  Messages can be sent by participants directly to the presenter’s email (without seeing the presenters’ email address) by clicking the envelope icon.
