 Poster Presentation Dimensions

This conference offers you and your fellow poster presenters, a novel opportunity for you to promote your poster presentation, in the form of a one-minute video. The video will serve to promote your poster and invite conference participants to visit with you during the session. The video should not be a PowerPoint presentation; rather, it should be a short video intended to catch the interest of conference participants and introduce them to your topic. The videos will be included on the conference mobile app and shown at the conference. Essentially, we are giving you the opportunity to do a short oral presentation: use this opportunity to be creative! The deadline for submitting your video is March 30. Your video should be as high a resolution as possible.  The videos will be included on the conference mobile app and social media.  Submit your video via this online link

Poster Presenters are invited to submit a PDF of your poster in advance of the conference. They will be added to the conference webpage and mobile app to share with the attendees in Marseille and Australia.
