Size of PDF Poster
As this is a virtual conference, we do not have a size requirement. In previous years, we used A0 size (841mm X 1189mm). There are no size requirements for stacks created in the e-poster environment.
The official language for the posters is English.
Even though our attendees aren't browsing your posters in a poster hall, don't make them zoom in too much! Please make sure all PDFs and image files use text at a reasonable size. For adequate visibility, it is recommended that headers be sized at least 48 points, and body text at least 20 points.
The following instructions apply to the classic single-panel poster, but it is recommended that posters in other formats also follow applicable instructions.
All posters should include a poster title, author(s) name(s) and affiliations, introduction, and conclusion.
Posters should be self-contained and self-explanatory, allowing different viewers to proceed on their own while the author is free to supplement or discuss points raised in inquiry. It is not necessary to include the entire research history; present only enough data to support the conclusions and show the originality of the work.
Avoid overcrowding figures and cramming too many numbers into tables. Legends and titles should accompany all figures, tables, photographs, etc., for identification.
Company (including non-profits) or university logos may be displayed in the lower right corner of the poster. Logo size on the final poster can be no greater than 3 inches (7.5 cm) high and 3 inches (7.5 cm) wide. No other commercial activity or advertising may be displayed on the poster. Please follow the Poster Content Guidelines below to ensure your poster meets scientific standards. Not complying with this rule may result in the poster being removed.

Poster Content Guidelines
Scientific and technical posters use the following divisions, or similar:
Your title should be the name of your presentation. It should be informative, but brief and attention-catching. By default, your abstract title will be how your poster is listed in the program. If you need to change the title, please contact us
to get the listing updated.
Your abstract should include all information necessary to understand the objective and/or hypothesis of your study. What problem are you trying to solve?
List your tools and procedures, being as specific yet concise as possible. Include all information necessary for another person to understand how you generated the data for your study.
Present your data as clearly and straightforwardly as possible. It is recommended to use graphs and tables where appropriate.
Summarize what the data mean with regards to reaching your original objective and/or proving your hypothesis.
Acknowledge key sources used in the study.
