Online Poster Gallery


We are excited to be working in the flipped space! Posters, abstracts, audio file, and your photograph will be featured on the conference website prior to the conference. This will allow all participants to browse posters prior to the Poster Reception and attend with specific questions in mind.  The website will be available for all participants to view one week prior to the conference. Even though you won't need to bring a print copy of your poster, there are a few things you'll need to prepare. 

What items do you need from me? 

  • PNG image of your poster. Image file saved as: lastname_Poster.png

  • PDF File of your poster. PDF file saved as: lastname_Poster.pdf

  • PNG headshot image.  PNG image saved as: lastname_headshot.png

  • MP4 file of a 90-second “elevator speech” about your poster to be posted to the website. Only the first author needs to record this audio file. Please send a .mp4 recording.  Save recording as lastname_recording.mp4

Preparing Your Poster


What are the specific poster requirements? 

Please see the PowerPoint template in Presenter Resources.

What makes a great poster display?

  • Use a light-colored background with dark letters

  • Be succinct – What are your main points? What is the most important message related to each of your learning objectives?

  • Use pictures and graphs instead of paragraphs when possible

  • Use large font (30+ point)

  • Use borders, colored headings, and/or “white space” to visually divide sections

Poster Reception

What do I do with my poster when I get to the conference?

Remember, you will not have a physical poster with you. Poster sessions will display your poster via a projector in the gallery. However, you are more than welcome to bring a laptop with your poster on it as a supplement to your discussion.


What will happen during the Poster Reception?

You will be assigned a time to discuss your work while your poster is projected. Conference participants are encouraged to view the online poster gallery in advance so they can come with specific questions during your assigned session. ​
