2020 International Mass Spectrometry Imaging (IMSI) Poster Gala

The Poster Gala will feature a customized environment created by PlanetConnect and our sponsors for interactive sharing among the international mass spectrometry imaging community. Imaging mass spectrometry (IMS) related posters by academic, industrial, and government research labs worldwide will be presented. The virtual environment will include:

  • Poster viewing
  • Poster oral presentations and Q&A
  • Vendor exhibition hall

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.

Key Dates:

December 3 Deadline for poster upload into virtual environment
