Are you presenting a poster?

Are you presenting a poster?

You will have to prepare your poster in advance, make a short video of yourself dicussing the poster (3 minutes maximum), and upload the video to a website that we will provide: a Poster Wall. 

Click  here for a short instructional video about how to make your digital poster, how to film it, and how to post it on the Poster Wall.

The video is itself posted on a Wall, to give you a clearer idea of the whole concept. Feel free to leave a comment while you are there!

Deadline for posting your video on the Poster Wall:

  • 11 June 2020
  • Conference volunteers will check your Wall post to ensure that you have conformed to the required format and time (1 slide [or the equivalent] with a film not exceeding 3 minutes).
  • If there are any problems, you will be contacted and asked to revise your presentation and upload the revised version before the conference starts.

The link for the Poster Wall...

  • ...has been sent via email to all Poster presenters. If you have not received it, please contact us immediately,  here.
    • They will be able to visit it at their leisure, watch your presentation, and leave comments.

 Written instructions:

1. Prepare your poster.

  • There is no need to create a physical poster.
  • Rather, we recommend that you create your scientific poster as a single slide in Powerpoint.
  • There are many useful online guidelines about how to do this.

2. Record yourself while you present your poster.

  • Use no more than 3 minutes for your presentation. This means that you be selective with what you choose to say! 
  • A user-friendly and free online tool that we recommend for this filming is  Loom.
    •  It allows you to capture your screen, voice, and face and instantly share your video afterwards. 
    • It works on a PC or a Mac.

3. Upload your video to our Poster Wall. 

  • The wall is hosted by  Padlet, an  easy-to-use tool that allows for online collaboration: the equivalent of an online bulletin board.
  • Create a Padlet account in your name before you post your poster video. Otherwise, your post will appear as posted by 'Anonymous'.
