We look forward to your upcoming poster presentation at the ISSCR Boston 2022 International Symposium.
All poster presenters must create a Physical Poster, that will be presented in person, and upload a Digital One-Page Poster PNG, which will be shown on the virtual meeting platform.
Poster presenters may also submit two additional files to communicate the highlights of their research and encourage attendees to view their poster and visit them during their poster session, a Custom Poster Preview and a Video Teaser.
Use these instructions and guidelines for creating a poster that visually presents your research or clinical project. Presenting a physical poster is required.
The ISSCR recommends:
Structure your poster similarly to a research paper or journal article. The ISSCR recommends:
You must make your own arrangements if printing your poster in Boston. ISSCR does not handle poster printing.
Due to fire regulations, no tables, chairs, or electrical hook-ups will be allowed near the posters.
You will be emailed login credentials to submit your materials through our abstract submission portal (CadmiumCD).
Additional information on virtual posters can be found at the bottom of this page.
If a Custom Poster Preview is not uploaded, the system will shrink your Traditional One-Page Poster PNG to fit the needed dimensions, which may result in the sides, top, or bottom being cut off.
NOTE: We encourage our presenters to share unpublished material.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 virtual Shanghai International Symposium. View our meeting policies here.
You must submit a digital one-page poster. See this example for instructions and 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. You must save your complete one-page poster as a PNG. 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 (for example 36 inches by 48 inches), and then saving it as a .PNG file.
A graphic preview of your poster will be located at top of your poster page. This is separate from the full poster and is not intended for reading full poster content. Default Poster Preview: The system will shrink the poster PNG to fit. Information at sides top or bottom may be cut.
We recommend creating a Custom Poster Preview to entice viewers to view your full poster. This 800 x 400 pixel PDF can include a graphical abstract or visually appealing image or figure to draw in attendees to learn more. See the example in the blue box below. To change the size of the slide in PowerPoint, go to Design > Slide Size > Custom Size and enter: width 800 px, height 400 px. Then save the slide as a .PDF file, named "Poster #_LastName" (i.e. 123_Kowalczyk).
You have the option of creating a short slide presentation with an audio recording to walk viewers through the highlights of your poster (maximum five minute video). You will need to record a video, save it as an MP4 file, upload it to an approved hosting site, and upload the URL to the poster submission portal.
