Poster instructions

Posters format

We will accept posters in most formats PDF, JPEG, PNG or Word, on a one sided page. It is recommended the posters are on a landscape format, to facilitate online viewing. 

The posters will be available on the website to all conference attendees to view and comment from the first day of the conference, on Tuesday 25 May 2021. Authors will then be able to answer all questions and discuss their posters via the Zoom breakout rooms.

Additionally, authors are allowed to (optional) prepare a quick 2 minute flash presentation of their poster for live discussion on the event. You can either narrate your slide as a pre-recording or present it live. This 2 minute presentation can be in any format, as long as it adheres to the time limit.
