Poster Presentation Information

Electronic Posters (e-posters)
You will not need to print and carry your poster(s) to Shanghai! Posters will be displayed 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 (5 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 2018 Exhibit and Poster Hall for viewing on Wednesday, April 11 and Thursday, April 12. 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
A Poster Viewing Session will be held in the afternoon of Thursday, April 12. Poster presenters will be allotted a 5-minute timeslot to present their e-poster, followed by two minutes for questions. Presentation of your poster is mandatory. Once the presenting author registration deadline has passed, a presentation schedule will be shared with presenters and registrants.

Poster Award

Poster presentations will be judged by the ISOPP Research Committee and the best poster will be awarded with a certificate. Presenting authors have to be ISOPP members. Encore presentations are not eligible for the Poster Award.
