ePoster Presentations​

ePosters can be comprised of two elements  - a PDF of the poster* and a 3-minute video summary if you choose to create one.

  • Your poster should be self-explanatory so that you are free to supplement and discuss particular points raised by inquiry
  • The video summary should detail enough that the audience gets a good idea of what your poster is about, including a brief introduction with an explanation of various sections of your poster.
