PRESENTING YOUR POSTER AT ISSCR 2021
We look forward to your Poster Session at ISSCR 2021! To get started:
All Poster Session times can be found here.
IF YOU NEED HELP DURING THE MEETING
How poster presenters can ask for help (times in Eastern Daylight Time):
At ISSCR 2021 Annual Meeting you can submit your poster as a traditional one-page poster (submitted as a JPG, PNG, or PDF), or you can submit a recording of a short slide presentation with an optional audio tour (must be saved as an MP4 and hosted on Wistia, YouTube, or Vimeo). The recorded presentation is limited to five minutes. Your poster may be viewed by attendees who cannot visit your poster session, or by attendees before they visit your poster session.
You must upload your JPG or video link by
14 June EXTENDED to 17:00 EDT on 16 June. After this time no changes or edits can be made. Posters will be available for viewing on 21 June. Learn more by watching our Poster Presentation Training Session.
For a sneak peak of this year’s Poster Theater please view this video.
See 'Upload Your Poster For the Meeting' for updated information on the one page poster option.
Your Poster Page (see preview left) in our Poster Theater will include your expandable poster, your abstract, and an area where viewers can leave comments or message you to set up a one-on-one video meeting.
Once you have access to your Poster Page, you will be able to upload a JPG of your one-page poster or the URL of your MP4 recording. You can also upload up to three additional resources (PDF, PPT, or JPG files only). Please note that resources will automatically download when an attendee views them. You will also be able to add your contact information and social media handles to connect with other attendees.
We encourage our presenters to share unpublished material. The ISSCR strictly prohibits the recording (photography, screen capture, audio, or video), copying or downloading of scientific results from the sessions, presentations, and posters at the ISSCR 2021 Annual Meeting
PRESENT A TRADITIONAL ONE-PAGE POSTER
You may submit a traditional one-page poster. See this example for tips to keep in mind when designing your poster. Viewers will be able to zoom in on and pan around your poster. The optimum ratio for your poster is 16:9. We recommend that your poster is at least 150 dpi. Save your poster as a JPG, PNG, or PDF. Your poster may be up to 10 MB in size. Save your file as "Poster #_LastName" (i.e. 123_Kowalczyk).
If you are designing your poster in PowerPoint we suggest editing the size of the slide (under custom slide size) so that it is the size of a large format poster, and then saving it as a JPG, PNG, or PDF.
UPLOAD YOUR POSTER FOR THE MEETING
Poster presenters who choose the one-page poster format should upload their high-resolution image to Dropbox, saved as "Poster #_LastName." Once we have received your poster, we will upload the image to your Poster Page in Juno, the annual meeting platform. You may notice that the preview of your poster on your Poster Page does not show your whole poster. Attendees will be able to click your poster preview and your full poster will open in a new window, which attendees can zoom in on.
PRESENTING A SLIDE PRESENTATION WITH OPTIONAL AUDIO TOUR
You may also submit your poster as a short slide presentation. You will need to record a video of this slide presentation and save it as an MP4 file. This file can include an audio tour of your poster. You must host the MP4 file on a supported site (see Hosting Your MP4 File below). You will then add the URL of the hosted MP4 file to your Poster Page. Viewers will NOT be able to download this file from the platform.
RECORDING YOUR AUDIO TOUR
You can design your slides and record your audio tour in any way that you like -- here are a few options. Tips on how to design your slide presentation can be found in this example slide presentation.
To record a virtual walkthrough of your poster presentation using PowerPoint, follow these instructions. You can record just audio, or audio along with a thumbnail video of you presenting. If you record with video, you will need to account for space in your slide where your video recording will appear (see below, note position of the video can be moved within the slide).
You can record your presentation using the free version of Zoom with these instructions.
You can record audio only, or audio with a video thumbnail. If you begin recording while you are in view, your video will appear in the recording but not be embedded in the slide (see below). When you are finished with your walk-through stop recording and then stop the meeting. Your recording will automatically be generated as an MP4 file. You will then need to host this MP4 file on Wistia, YouTube, or Vimeo to obtain a link to access your recording (see Hosting Your MP4 File below).
HOSTING YOUR MP4 FILE
You must upload a URL of your poster presentation recording to your Poster Page. Our meeting platform will support videos hosted on Wistia, YouTube, or Vimeo. If you choose to use a version of these websites that requires a subscription fee, you are responsible for any cost associated with hosting your video. It is also your responsibility to ensure that you have checked all privacy and share settings and that they are configured how you like.
You can sign up for a free subscription plan at Wistia and host your MP4 poster presentation on this site. Use the following instructions to upload your MP4 file. Learn how to share your video privately here. You will then be able to upload your embedded URL to your Poster Page.
You can sign up for a free subscription plan at YouTube and host your MP4 poster presentation on this site. You can learn more about configuring your privacy settings here. You must share your video as unlisted or public so that attendees will be able to view your presentation on the meeting platform. It is your responsibility to ensure that you have configured your privacy settings properly. If you choose to share your video through YouTube you will have access to the closed captioning feature seen in the this video at 00:50. You will then be able to upload your URL to your Poster Page.
You can sign up for a free subscription plan at Vimeo and host your MP4 poster presentation on this site. With a free subscription you would need to set your privacy settings to public in order for meeting attendees to view your presentation. You will then be able to upload your URL to your Poster Page.
