Platform Presentation Information

The platform presentations are scheduled in the morning of Saturday, April 29. Each presentation is scheduled for 15 minutes including questions from the audience. Presentation specifics will be communicated to the submitting author closer to the Symposium date. The first author must be the presenting author.


Poster Presentation Information

Electronic Posters (e-posters)

You will not need to print and carry your poster(s) to Budapest! Posters will be presented as electronic posters (e-posters) instead of traditional paper posters.

If your abstract is accepted for poster presentation, you will be asked to submit an e-poster file to the ISOPP abstract management system, which is very simple:

You create your poster in Microsoft PowerPoint, usually an e-poster is 6 to 10 slides. Once created, you upload your PowerPoint file using the abstract system’s existing password protected upload feature. Detailed directions will be provided in the poster acceptance notice.

The uploaded PowerPoint files will be converted into individual e-poster PDF files to preserve your content and formatting (including embedded video files). These individual PDFs will be combined into a single file and uploaded onto viewing stations.


E-Posters Display

E-posters will be on display on viewing stations, consisting of large screens on stands with laptops, and set up in the ISOPP 2017 Exhibit and Poster Hall for viewing between Wednesday, April 26 and Saturday, April 29. The combined e-posters PDF file will also be made available to attendees online, so posters can be viewed at their leisure during and after the Symposium.


Poster Viewing Session – Mandatory Presentation

Poster presenters will be allotted a 5-minute timeslot to present their e-poster during the Poster Viewing Session, scheduled in the afternoon of Friday, April 28. Presentation of your poster is mandatory. Once the presenting author registration deadline has passed, a presentation schedule will be shared with presenters and registrants.
