Presenting your Poster

A Poster is a visual medium that you use to communicate a key idea related to your research. It presents that idea in a verbal and graphic way.

Unlike an oral presentation, a poster does (most) of your talking – but the great thing about the OnAIR portal is that you too can present and discuss your poster like never before!

There are several advantages to presenting a poster:

  • Posters can be viewed at any time. Your Poster will be available throughout the conference in the dedicated Poster Gallery. These will be available to be viewed 1 week prior to and 3 months post conference.
  • Viewers can “absorb” the presentation in their own time/way.
  • You will have the ability to not only share with viewers your poster but engage with delegates via the Q&A function. Delegates can view your poster and then type any questions they may have for you to reply to via text.

Electronic posters (ePosters) will be available for viewing for the duration of the conference in the Poster Gallery. Posters will also be made available to be viewed 1 week prior to the conference and 3 months after the conference in the online platform.

The layout of your Poster is at your discretion, however, brevity and clarity are the essence of a good Poster. The aim of Posters is to display your project or an idea in a concise form, enabling delegates to grasp the essentials of the subject in a short time frame.

We recommend a 16:9 ratio landscape poster in PDF.
Your ePoster should be less than 20MB.

It is critical you check your ePoster on a computer other than the one you use to create the ePoster. This allows you to check any images or tables are embedded correctly and the layout and fonts transfer as you want.

Posters will be uploaded as received. Please ensure you fully proof your ePoster before submitting it.
