As poster presenter, you will get your own virtual Hopin session in which you can deliver your presentation live and answer questions from attendees. You can use this room and time in any way you wish, be it sharing the digital form of a standard poster or showing a short PowerPoint presentation. However, to be considered for the poster competition for undergraduate and graduate students (with cash prizes!), you should follow these guidelines:

  1. Format. Share your screen and show one of the following:

a. A digital version of a typical conference poster (3´ x 3´ or 4´ x 3´ with multiple columns). You can zoom-in and move the view around as needed to ensure attendees can see the figures.

b. A PowerPoint presentation (no more than 10 slides) that contains the information of a typical conference poster. Although this option mimics a short oral presentation, we are considering this a poster presentation since it is given to a limited audience.

2. Presentation. The poster should be presented as if you were at an in-person conference. That is, it should be presented live (not recorded) with attendee interaction and questions expected.

3. Timing. It is recommended that you develop a ~10-minute presentation that you will most likely deliver multiple times. Be sure you are in your session room for the entire 90-minute session, since judges will be attending poster presentations throughout the session.

Additional technical information (how to share your screen, turn on your mic, etc.) will be provided at a later date.
