Poster Submission Information

Deadline May 13 2021

Posters must meet the following criteria:

  • .png or .jpg format
  • max 3MB
  • opaque background
  • minimum size is 1000 x 600 pixels (or 26.46 x 15.88 cm); this will produce a low-resolution poster in Gather Town! so we recommend using the dimensions you would use for an in-person conference (i.e. 121.92 cm x 91.44 cm)

Posters should be uploaded when registering for the event


What to expect during our virtual poster sessions!

During the poster sessions, judges will be walking up to different posters, listening to your spiel, and asking you questions. You won’t know who’s a judge, so make sure to make every conversation count!!  We are trying to simulate an in-person poster session since our platform mimics an in-person conference. We have allocated time specifically for posters, so you will not be missing anything by attending the poster session. Please see this link for your poster number. 

If you do not wish to participate in the poster competition, you are not required to attend the poster session.
