E-poster Guidelines 

What is an E-poster? 

An e-poster is an electronic version/PDF of a poster presentation. The e-poster may include text, figures, charts, tables, images, and artwork but does not include any audio, video, web links or animation.

E Posters must be submitted by February 22. 

Posters received after this date will NOT be discussed during the meeting and will not eligible for the poster prizes.

What specifications do I need to be aware of? 

Prepare a single Microsoft PowerPoint slide that will be displayed on a wide screen monitor between 27”- 32”.

What format should I use? 

The presentation should be in landscape orientation with a screen ratio of 16:9. As an example, to adjust your slides orientation and ratio in PowerPoint 2007/2010 follow these steps:

1. Select Design from the menu tab

2. Click on Page setup and select On-Screen Show (16:9) as well as Landscape.

The font size depends on the default width and height that is selected according to the above settings. Different values might require a smaller/larger font size. The maximum allowed size is 80x45cm.

The presentation must be in the PPT, PPTX, ODP or PDF format to be accepted (Windows, Mac or Linux).

Please note that all uploaded presentations will be converted and published in PDF format.

Limitations: As the poster is treated as a single poster presentation you should have only one slide. The file size should not exceed 16 Megabytes.

Images and animations: Avoid overlapping, animated objects or serial animations. Only the final view/status per slide will be visible as all uploaded presentations will be converted and published in PDF format.

Font type: Please use Times New Roman or Arial.

Font size: The font size should be 14pt or bigger.

Images and tables: 

• You are welcome to use images and tables in your presentation

• All graphs and tables must be embedded in your file and have titles

• Avoid animated GIF files and be careful to respect copyright and personal anonymity with your images or photos

• Do not insert or embed any videos in your presentation

A note to Apple Macintosh users: Please do not use “drag-and-drop” to insert pictures into Microsoft PowerPoint files, as graphs and images would not be displayed properly. Using the INSERT command from the menu will virtually eliminate these issues.


• Please do not include audio in your presentation

• Do not include hyperlinks as there will be no internet access on the e-poster screens.

We thank you once again for your patience and look forward to featuring your e-poster at the conference. Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you have any further queries.
