Basic poster presentation details
- File size: No larger than 50 MB (including videos)
- Screen ratio: 4:3 or 16:9
- Screen sizes: 46” Samsung HD LCD screens.
22” HD Monitors will be situated around the venue.
Delegates may also view on any personal web enabled device such as an iPhone, laptop or PDA.
- Slide length: No more than 7 slides. The first slide can only be a title slide, up to 5 slides can contain your content and the 7th slide can be for references & acknowledgements. The 7th slide cannot be shown during your presentation
- Presentation length: You will only have a maximum of 3 to 4 minutes for your talk. This means you will not have time to present every detail on every slide but only to give an overview e.g. on the "Introduction/Objectives" slide, you may decide to only explain the aim and not cover the introduction bullet points. Delegates who are interested will be able to read the rest of the details later on a small touchscreen or online on their own device.

- You should consider the style, colour and layout of your presentation - we recommend that you use one of the templates provided.
- The posters will be presented on large 46” screens. It is, therefore, important that you keep small fonts to a minimum and formatting simple.
- Use of colour should be considered carefully. Combinations such as black text on a blue background are hard to read, for example.
- Easy-to-understand headings, pictures and even animations or movies to interact with your audience as these allow for greater engagement.
- We suggest you use one of our PowerPoint templates to help you construct your poster.
- There are zoom, scroll and next slide options for delegates viewing the poster.
- Posters and presentations may be accessed post-Congress should the committee allow this option to proceed. If you do not want this to happen, please inform us during the upload process.
- It is not necessary to include a title slide but we recommend it, as it will provide a starting point for your talk. There will be an icon with your poster name and title for delegates to choose when searching through the viewers.
- The poster viewing system has been designed for landscape format.
- Please note: your talk will be cut short if you go over time. We suggest you practice your talk beforehand to ensure you will keep within the 3-4 minute timeframe.
What is the process?
- Please ensure that you do not close down the window when uploading your presentation. This will ensure that the full content of your file is received. A notification will inform you that the upload was successful
- Once we receive your file, we will manually convert the file to PDF where it will be then uploaded onto our system for viewing on site.
We will be available on site to assist you if there were any difficulties with your presentation such as embedded movies, broken links or issues in conversion. Please check your poster on one of the monitors or on your own computer when you arrive at the congress.
The deadline for upload is Friday 1 August. If, due to exceptional circumstances, you are unable to meet this deadline, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to request late submission.
