Creating Your Virtual Poster Presentation
Login with the information you received in an email sent from our poster provider, aMuze! iPosterSessions. If you have not "published" your virtual poster, please do so as soon as possible in order for it to be available for all registered attendees to view at the start of the meeting on June 7. The deadline to create and publish your virtual poster is Monday, May 24.
Each poster presenter will create a digital, interactive virtual poster through a web-based platform, aMuze! iPosterSessions. The iPosterSessions platform is a flexible HTML-based poster format that allows authors to create interactive presentations that can include:
- high-resolution images
- high-definition videos and animations
- detailed charts and diagrams
- slide shows
- audio files
- voice-over narrations
- scrolling content
- links to external data sets
Please note, there is no function for uploading a poster in another format (e.g. PDF, PPT) directly to the iPosterSessions platform.
Presenters must be registered for their virtual posters to appear in the online program as well as attend the 2021 Eddy Symposium.
If you have trouble accessing the virtual poster editor site, please contact the aMuze! Support Desk here. When you communicate with Support, please use this Conference Code: EDDY2021
If you have any questions about the scientific program, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Virtual Poster Platform Training Resources
- For an overview of editing the Templates please check out our Tutorials.
- If you have questions about creating your virtual poster, you’ll find answers to most of them by visiting our Quick Guide and FAQ.
- Making the poster more accessible for visually impaired:
- Make sure there is good contrast between your text color and background color.
- Include captions/text below or above all images, graphs, etc. with full sentence messages about the data.
- Use narrations to explain your research. You can make a general narration by using the Narration tool located in the Main Toolbar, and you can create narrations specific to each content box by using the insert audio tools. Narrations are easily done by recording on your mobile device and sending them over to your computer.
- In addition to scheduling a text chat time, authors can also run your own live iPoster presentation and discussion, using any of the common web-based meeting services like Zoom, Webex, Microsoft Teams, and others. Check out the step-by-step guide to setting up and running one.
*Please note, once scheduled the text and video chat times will appear with your abstract in the online program, but are conducted completely at your discretion and fully in the iPoster platform.
