Poster Presenter Guidelines
Poster presentations at VirtualSON2020 Online will consist of two options:
Poster Uploading on Figshare
Participants will receive an email with a link to our Figshare page where you will upload your poster. You do not need to create an account in order to access the page, but you may wish to if you want to use Figshare for storing and sharing other files.
When you fill in the form with descriptive information associated with your poster files, make sure to add the keyword that is emailed to you into the keyword box. This is very important for indexing your presentation to the poster collection page.
While Figshare can be used to share information widely to the public, the page was set up in a way that limits access to registrants who have been given the URL to the page or the keyword. Just as at an in person conference, posters are limited to registrants, this is a way to limit attendance to registered participants and avoid completely public sharing of what might be pre-publication data. That said, use your discretion in deciding what to include.
Poster Q&A Sessions
More information on timing of sessions, presentation structure, and technical requirements for participation will be available soon.
Poster PreviewsDeadline for uploading posters is Dec 11 to allow some time to resolve any issues prior to the conference.
What dimensions should my poster be? Do you have any guidelines for presenting a virtual poster?
Although any dimensions can be used, remember that attendees will be viewing posters on their computer screens. We recommend that posters be readable without zoom when displayed at full-screen width.
We recommend arranging information blocks like
1 > 2 > 3
4 > 5 > 6
7 > 8 > 9
instead of the print poster tradition of
1 4 7
2 5 8
3 6 9.
Presenters will have option of uploading a 5-minute video describing their poster (Max File Size: 100 MB).
Posters will be available for viewing by meeting registrants through Jan 30.
Note: Final scheduling for live Q&A will depend on the total number of submissions.
Note: Session Assignments will go out by Dec 8. If you have a conflict, contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll do our best to accommodate, but you may get put in a session on another topic at our discretion.
