INFORMATION FOR E-POSTERS

 

 

 

 

The posters will be viewed on widescreen HD screens, so please bear this in mind when creating your poster.

 

Format – We are not accepting traditional hanging posters only e-posters. Please read the following information very carefully. We have detailed below the only acceptable format that your e-poster should be in. If it isn’t in this format it cannot be accepted as it will not display correctly and we are enforcing rigorous quality control at this meeting.

 

Only acceptable format – Your e-poster submission should be a one slide PowerPoint file in widescreen format

 

Naming your file – Save your file naming it with your abstract number followed by the title of your eposter (use the title that was submitted on your abstract as changes are not acceptable)

 

Deadline – We require your e-poster by the deadline of 12 noon on Friday 28th September 2018

 

Slide Master Format – When creating your slide, please create it in the widescreen format. This format is the default format for Microsoft Office 2013 and later versions. This is NOT the default setting for earlier versions therefore you will have to change your slide master BEFORE creating your PowerPoint slide.  You can download a template:  Eposter Template (pptx file) or earlier version of Eposter Template 97-2003 (ppt file)

Failure to submit your PowerPoint slide by 12 noon on Friday 28th September 2018 will mean that your e-poster will NOT be included at the meeting. We are providing viewing stations that have a programmed menu and our technicians require ample time to set all the stations. Once you have submitted your slide by the deadline it cannot be changed.
