A new approach to poster presentations

The Scientific Program Committee decided to use a new approach for poster presentations and wanted to move beyond a vision of traditional posters on boards and e-Posters as an electronic PDF version.

Therefore, all posters will be presented as an interactive e-Poster using a platform calledLearning Toolbox’. The platform allows presenters to include a wide range of multimedia and interactive material in their e-Poster including videos, surveys, presentations, web links and even apps. No paper posters will be accepted for this conference.

Poster pitches:
The highest ranked poster abstracts are given the chance to present their e-Poster in a 2-min poster pitch during a dedicated session on Monday or Tuesday morning.
If you have received a notification about your acceptance for a poster pitch, there is no need to prepare a separate presentation, as your e-Poster will be displayed on the screen with you being able to highlight the most important content during the pitch.

  • The e-Posters are created within an online platform that includes webinars and help videos for easy use
  • The e-Posters can contain links, images, videos, apps, surveys, presentations and much more, and can be updated at any given time.
  • The e-Posters are available to view on an app and a website where viewers can browse and search
  • e-Posters can be shared, saved and the Learning Toolbox allows delegates to have discussions that are attached to the e-Poster (viewable by all who interact with that e-Poster) and allows them to send out messages to the e-Poster author. These exchanges can happen before, during & after the conference. Our educational aim is for this extra interactivity to help delegates find and develop groups who have a shared interest in their research topic.
  • In addition, so-called mini-posters will be created for each e-Poster that will be printed by the Conference Management and displayed onsite. This helps bridging the physical and the virtual world. We use the mini-poster wall to actually give the e-Posters a high profile (but small footprint) presence in the conference and a very easy way to move from the mini- poster to the e-Posters (each e-Poster has a QR code for easy access)
  • The e-Posters are accessible before, during and after the conference, making them a long-term learning resource that could be used by the e-Poster author and those who had an interest in their topic. The ‘Learning Toolbox’ effectively allows conference attendees to mark and take their favourite e-Posters with them on their phone and it allows the e-Poster author to add to and update it following the discussions at the conference.
  • e-Posters are browsable, searchable, shareable
  • Unlimited content that can be updated anytime
  • Message and chat option to encourage engaging discussions
  • Mini-poster wall for more exposure and easy access onsite (printed by the conference organizers)
  • Available before, during and after the conference
  • A sustainable option to reduce the conference’s carbon footprint
  • Attendees save costs for printing and transportation
  • Abstract Submitters will be contacted by email mid-April 2021 with an invitation to sign up on the e-Poster creation platform
  • Sign up and create your e-Poster
  • A webinar will be offered to e-Poster presenters in May 2021. The webinar will be recorded to be viewed on demand
  • August 10, 2021: Deadline to finalize mini-and e-Poster
