Instructions for the preparation of e-Posters

E-poster presentations will be available for viewing via the online communication platform. Each E-poster will consist of a 1-page JPG image file and an optional up to 3 minutes long embedded video description prepared by the author. In the platform participants/experts will be able to chat with the poster presenter or add comments/ask questions. The author can provide an optional virtual meeting link for online discussion of the poster. The author should be available for chat on the platform during the prespecified time for poster viewing session.

Access to virtual platform

You will receive the access and instructions for the virtual platform until 15 May. This will automatically assure your registration to BAS2021 and no additional registration is required. In the platform your profile will be synchronised with the poster profile, and the communication is organised via your poster profile.

Technical specification for e-poster preparation

Please upload your e-poster as a 1-page static image file in your BAS2021 virtual platform profile in portrait orientation.

File format: .jpg or .png (minimum resolution 1080x1920)

When you have finished your poster using our .PPTX template, please select File - Save As, choose “JPEG (*.jpg)”, “PNG (*.png)” as file format and click Save.

We also advise you to upload an additional PDF version of your poster as a downloadable file in your profile if your poster contains detailed schemes and graphs that require higher resolution.

To ensure proper visibility, use font size of at least 16 points or larger. To test your poster before you upload it, print it for proofreading on paper (A4 size) and if it reads clearly from one meter then your electronic version will look fine.
