E-poster Presenters 

If your abstract has been selected for presentation as an e-poster, please note the following: 

  • E-posters will be displayed throughout the meeting on large monitors that offer attendees the ability to search by author, title, or presentation number. During scheduled lunches and most breaks, e-poster presenters will gather around designated monitors in the Exhibit Hall to answer questions about their research. Presenters must be available to respond to questions from attendees during the designated presentation time.

E-poster Upload Instructions 

The deadline to upload your e-poster is Monday, April 16, 2018 at 11:59 pm EST. 

The e-posters will be displayed horizontally on a 65” monitor. 

  • No videos 
  • E-poster is 1 page/slide
  • Horizontal layout 
  • Font size should not be smaller than 12 point (Please Note: Zoom in and zoom out features are on all monitors.)
  • E-posters must be saved in a 16:9 PNG format, file size of 100MB or less 

Podium Presentations


  • Please make sure your second slide is your Conflict of Interest disclosure slide.
  • Speakers will receive an email from PSAV that will include a link and individual login credentials to submit their presentations online prior to the start of the meeting.
  • Acceptable formats for presentations include PowerPoint (.ppt or .pptx) and Adobe Acrobat (.pdf).
  • Use short video segments when merited, and try to keep the file to less than 20 MB to reduce loading times.
  • PowerPoint embeds image files directly into the file when you save them, while video files are not embedded. Only a link is made to the video file. Copy the video clips you want to insert into the same folder as the PowerPoint file. This will eliminate the problem of PowerPoint losing the link to the file. Be sure to bring the video files and the PowerPoint files to the meeting.
  • Meeting rooms will be set with 16:9 video screens. Please format or convert your PowerPoint presentation to accommodate this screen size. Instructions for setting up your presentation to 16:9 can be downloaded here.  Please note that if you do not adjust your presentation to 16:9, the 4:3 size will still work (but will not fill the entire screen).  If you have any questions on how to convert your presentation, please reach out to PSAV Digital Services at or (214) 210-8006 (M-F 8:00 am - 5:00 pm CST).
