Preparation of Posters

    x 1.2m long. (Any longer, and it becomes difficult to see.) Portrait style is preferred.
  • Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors as stated on the submitted abstract.
  • The text, illustrations, etc. should be bold enough to be read from a distance of two meters (six feet).
  • Tacks and technical equipment will be available for the hanging of posters.

Short Oral presenting authors and Poster Walk presenting authors will have the option of uploading an e-Poster if they wish to. Authors will be contacted directly with all preparation details and information regarding technical aspects of E-posters. The poster author will receive a username and password for the following procedure:

  1. Agree to Terms and Conditions of E-Poster upload.
  2. Validate and update demographic details.
  3. Click on the poster title which you authorize for publication.
  4. Upload E-Poster File* - Accepted file formats for your E-Poster are PNG/GIF/JPG
    The maximum size of your E-Poster in pixels is: 4000 x 4000px.
    Please note: larger sizes will be scaled down while maintaining aspect ratio. As this is an automated process, finer details may be lost and therefore it is highly recommended to keep the E-Poster within the limit specified BEFORE uploading.
  5. Save and Preview E-Poster (Please note: the option to edit your E-Poster is still possible).
  6. Section the E-Poster as desired. Once uploaded, you will be able to use our tools to define sections of your E-Poster – making it easy to navigate through your poster at the viewing station.
  7. Your E-Poster is successfully uploaded and a confirmation email will be sent shortly thereafter.

Presenting authors will be sent instructions on how to prepare and upload the E-Poster. Please note this is OPTIONAL.

For any queries that you may have please contact the MeetingExpert Support Team on

POSTER walks

Parallel Poster Walk Presentations will be given during lunch breaks on Thursday, May 8th and Friday, May 9th.

Approximately 180 posters will be selected for poster walks. All are invited to the Poster Area at the above times to hear the short presentations and to ask questions. Please note that there are a number of parallel walks in each session, consisting of a number of posters in each walk. You may find your session of interest by finding the poster board numbers that correspond to those walks in the final program. Each Poster Walk will be guided by one chairperson.

Presenters should be at their poster boards 10 minutes before the start of the poster walk session and remain there until they have concluded their presentation. Each presenter has been allocated 5 minutes to present his/her poster.

In order to increase exposure for your research, this year all posters accepted for Poster Walk presentation have the option to upload their poster as an E-Poster. The e-Posters will be available for viewing onsite at the ESPID Meeting and, for ESPID members, on the ESPID society website after the Meeting. Poster Walk presenters should still create a traditional printed poster to hang at the Meeting.
