Specification for Poster Presentation

For poster presentation, a single pdf file should be uploaded for each poster.   The pdf file may have multiple pages, but keep it poster length (8-10 slides).  We recommend to prepare your poster as a short series of slides in PowerPoint and save the file as a pdf file. This format will ensure optimal viewing and the best experience for presenters and attendees within the virtual environment.

In addition to the pdf file, each poster presenter is allowed to upload an optional short video of the presentation.  The video file should be *.mp4 file. The resolution should be 720 pixels to 1440 pixels.  We recommend 1280 by 720 pixels or 1920 by 1080 pixels. The maximum length of the presentation video is 5 minutes.
