101st Annual Meeting Poster Presenter Information

Presenting Soon? What to Expect During Your Poster Session

Roblox image maker

Your live poster session will take place entirely in the ‘Poster Hall’ of the virtual platform, and will focus on Q&A with attendees through text chat as well as video chat. Attendees will have already had the opportunity to view your poster PDF and the optional video as homework prior to the session, so they should be prepared with questions to ask you. This poster session time is yours to explain and discuss your poster as attendees “enter” your virtual poster space. Please read through these tips to help better prepare you for your upcoming poster session.

Chatting with Attendees

Attendees visiting your poster have the option to chat with you directly 1:1 by clicking on your “Chat Now”. This chat function can include up to 5 participants for text or video chat.

Chat with Multiple Attendees

To interact with multiple attendees at once during your live poster session, select the “Join Poster Chat” button at the top of your poster booth page.

Advanced Options

If you are looking for more functionality to present your poster (i.e. screen-sharing, displaying your poster PDF, presenting slides, etc.) we recommend creating your own Google Meet Video Meeting. Simply post your Google Meet link directly into the “Join Poster Chat” function in your individual poster booth when you are ready to start the meeting (see screenshot right).

*Please note - Google Meet will take you off the platform. You should still try your best to monitor the chat in the platform during your live designated poster session.

How will I present?

In order to organize a successful virtual event, the AMS and the Overall Planning Committee for the 101st Annual Meeting condensed the amount of concurrent sessions for the virtual meeting down to 24 (rather than the 45+ concurrent sessions normally held during an in person AMS Annual Meeting). While changing our format to focus mainly on 5 minute lightning talks during oral sessions did help us to assign almost as many of our abstracts to oral presentations as in an in person meeting, some abstract submitters have been assigned a virtual poster, rather than the oral presentation that they indicated as a preference during submission. While we will keep these submissions in mind in the event of an oral presentation cancellation/withdrawal, we do want to make note that the virtual posters for the 101st Annual Meeting will offer presenters much more functionality than an in person meeting.

What will I present?

Presenters will receive several opportunities to highlight their poster to all attendees. All files must be uploaded into the Poster Portal no later than 3 January, 2020 11:59 PM EST. Please note, the Poster Portal will open December 14 for poster presenters to upload their files. Unfortunately, no exceptions to this deadline will be made. *It is extremely important that presenters upload all necessary files into the Poster Portal by 3 January. If they are not uploaded on time, the presentation will be withdrawn from the program. Please send any abstract title or author changes to the Meetings Department by 3 January. Additionally, poster presenters will be withdrawn if they are not registered by 8 January.

Each poster presenter will be required to:

  • Provide a one-page Poster PDF that will be uploaded to the Poster Portal
  • Upload a smaller thumbnail image that will display with their title to the Poster Portal
  • Participate live in Q&A during their designated poster session - poster presenters will be able to interact with attendees through text chat as well as video chat

Poster Portal File Requirements:

Poster PDF Requirements (Required)

All poster presenters are required to upload a one-page Poster PDF

  • Please submit your poster file(s) to the Poster Portal by 3 January
  • Your Poster PDF should be one page only
  • The PDF file size limit is 30MB

Although any dimensions can be used, please note that attendees will be viewing posters on their computer screens. We recommend that posters be readable without need to zoom in when displayed at full-screen width. While we do not have a specific template for presenters to use, there are a number of websites that offer free templates to assist you in creating your Poster PDF. The 36x48 poster size formatted horizontally is the most popular based on the usual, physical dimensions for an AMS Conference.

Online Resources:

Examples:

Tips for your Poster PDF:

  • Place the title and name at the top center of the poster
  • Keep it simple
  • Make sure it has a logical flow
  • Use color, graphics, charts, and photos
  • Key points should be in large type
  • Do not try to tell the entire story on the panel
  • Save some key points for the one-on-one discussion
  • Avoid the following color combinations: Green & Red; Green & Brown; Blue & Purple; Green & Blue; Light Green & Yellow; Blue & Grey; Green & Grey; Green & Black

Thumbnail Image Requirements (Required)

All poster presenters are required to upload a thumbnail image. This image will display alongside the respective poster title in the Poster Hall. Attendees will click on the thumbnail image associated with a poster title to 'enter' into that presenter's poster booth.

  • Please submit your thumbnail image to the Poster Portal by 3 January
  • The image should be uploaded in PNG or JPEG format.
  • The thumbnail image is the first thing attendees will see alongside your poster title as they are scrolling through the poster gallery - choose an image that best represents the general theme or an aspect of your poster
  • The image should be related to your poster, but please DO NOT upload an image of your poster, as that will be uploaded in the Poster PDF tab

Pre-Recorded Video Requirements (Optional)

Poster presenters will be given the option to provide a pre-recorded video presentation file about their poster that attendees will watch as homework before the poster sessions. We strongly encourage all poster presenters to take advantage of this option. During their designated poster session, poster presenters will be able to interact with attendees through text chat as well as video chat. Please record your presentation and upload it no later than 3 January.

Accepted Video Formats:

  • Video recordings should be less than 15-minutes in length
  • File Types Accepted: .mp4, .mov, .avi, .mpg, .mpeg
  • File Size Max: 250MB
  • Video Resolution: 480p, 720p, 1080p. Videos will be scaled to 720p

Additionally, do not use the recording capability built into Powerpoint. We have found the resulting MP4 will not result in a good quality recording.

Closed Captioning
If you plan to record a video of yourself presenting your poster, we highly recommend that you provide closed captions. Closed captions should be included directly on the recording video. Below are some ways that you can add closed captions to your slides. These are just suggestions and you are welcome to use other software.

  • Soundflower (voice recording to text)

  • Otter.ai (voice recording to text)

  • Amara Subtitle Editor (can also do translations)

  • Rev(Rev is a service that will caption your video for a small fee)

Please note that it is not possible to add closed captions directly in Keynote. If you plan to use Keynote, you will have to use one of the other options above to create your closed captions.

Recording your Poster Presentation

Screen Recorders are able to record your webcam along with your recording. We Recommend these screen recorders will do an excellent job of recording your slide presentation:

  • For Mac:
    • Use the screen recording feature built into QuickTime Player, and send us the recording as a Quicktime (.mov) file
    • Use the screen recording feature built into Keynote (included with most Apple devices), and send us the resulting M4V file. To edit the recording created with Keynote we recommend iMovie (included with most Apple devices). Please save your file as: Resolution:1080p, Quality: high, and Compress: Best Quality and send us the MP4 recording.
  • For Windows:
    • Use Flashback Express (very easy to use, free forever), and send us the Flashback (.fbr) file.
  • For Windows or Mac:
    • Use TechSmith Snagit (free 15 day trial), and send us the MP4 recording.
    • Use Zoom Meeting Application (free account), and send us the MP4 recording.

Recording with TechSmith Snagit Application

If you would like to record your webcam along with your recording we only suggest doing so using the TechSmith Snagit application and following the instructions provided below. You may, of course, also use this application when recording your presentation without your webcam (more non-webcam application options will follow). When recording with QuickTime we instead suggest that you simply include a good photo or video of yourself as part of the first and last slides in your presentation. Your physical presence will be missed at the meeting. But if the audience can see your face at the beginning and at the end of your talk, and if the audio quality of the recording is good, then it will almost feel to them as if you were there for a short while. You can record these short videos using TechSmith Snagit.

  • Recording with Snagit: IMPORTANT: Do not record your screen with a higher resolution than 1920 x 1080. If your computer's resolution is higher than that, please change this to a maximum of 1920 x 1080. Instructions for changing computer resolution in Mac and in Win 10.
  • When you start the Snagit Application you will see options on how you would like to record:
    1. Click the Video button on the bottom left corner. For Mac: click Capture button in the top left, then a box appears on the top right, here you can click 'Video' and change the selection to 'full-screen'.
    2. Selection setting should be 'Region'. For Mac: leaving this as full-screen yielded best results.
    3. Share setting should be 'None'
    4. Webcam should be turned off. You can turn it on during your presentation at any time if you like.
    5. Preview in Editor should be ticked in the on position.

    1. Press the red circular capture button.
    2. Press the 'F' key on your keyboard to record the fullscreen. For Mac: does not apply in Mac.
    3. Press the record button on the toolbar.
    4. Optionally, while recording you can click on the video icon on the small grey Snagit toolbar to record your webcam video. For Mac: in order to turn your webcam on during your presentation: bring your cursor to the lower right and hover over the person icon, it will read 'Switch to webcam', click. To switch back to recording the presentation on your screen: hover over the same icon, it will read 'Switch to screen', click.

Recording with Zoom

Setting up with Zoom:

The webcam will disappear and will now only be a small black bar. You can show the webcam again by hovering over the black bar and clicking the grey maximize button. note: Whenever you hide the webcam video it will disappear in the recording, whenever the webcam is visible you will see it in the recording in it's own area outside of your presentation. So at no point in your presentation recording will the presentation be obscured by your Webcam video.
