2021 Online Poster Guidelines and Suggestions:

For questions please contact eirini_poulaki@utexas.edu.

The day of the symposium you will be sharing your screen in your “Virtual room”. The poster can be as small or big as you want, but you should be able to describe your poster within ~10 min. The virtual rooms can have up to 8 participants so be aware that people might be “waiting” to see your poster.

Make sure you can easily magnify your poster and that your figures are high-quality so that you can talk through your poster as people go in-and-out of your assigned online room.

  • Presentation should cover the material cited in the abstract
  • Poster must have title and author names
  • Organize the information in a clear, orderly, and self-explanatory way
