Virtual Posters (poster presentations)

button submit your abstract here 1

This year we are going to try a new format for posters. They will be in the form of graphical abstracts/virtual posters. A graphical abstract may consist of several formats including animation and audio. Format details are below.  Each presenter will have 2 minutes of screen time where their 'poster' will be displayed on screen. The presenter must be present during the session and can choose to speak for their two minutes or have pre-recorded audio. Each presenter may produce a physical copy of their poster to be displayed during the poster session. We ask that these be AO in size and Landscape orientation. We intend to upload to our YouTube channel and may do this live.
