Poster presentation guidelines

Samsung Logo

All ISBS posters will be presented digitally, on large 55” SAMSUNG screens.

We have received 20 new screens from ISBS 2018 Conference Diamond Industry Partner SAMSUNG to be used for the digital poster sessions.

Use A0 poster size (841 x 1189 mm), portrait format, provided in a Microsoft PowerPoint format. A example poster can be downloaded here.

You will have to send us your poster presentation as soon as possible, and at the latest the day before your presentation. You can send us (Dr Jono Neville) your poster at any time to have it tested.

You can insert videos into your posters to showcase your methods. Video formats: posters must be submitted using embedded video files using formats supported by Microsoft PowerPoint: avi, mp4, mov, mpg, wmv. We cannot guarantee video formats outside of these will operate as intended. Embedded videos should be set to play automatically and loop continuously to enable continued display throughout the day.

For advice on technical specifications, contact Dr Jono Neville.
