Guidelines for Preparing and Delivering an ePoster

The association has standard procedures for accepting your ePoster for the event. 

  • All posters should be submitted to the association as PDF files.

Make sure your slides are in Widescreen format (Design/Slide Size/Widescreen 16:9.) The large LCD screens will allow your ePoster to be viewed widescreen at a resolution of 1920x1080.

    • All ePoser presentations will be shown as a PDF within a Web browser popup widow.
    • Widescreen 16:9 ePosters will completely fill our screens, as shown on the left.  If you submit the standard 4:3 slide size, please note how your slide will appear on our widescreen monitors – left and right sides of the screen will be blank, as shown on the diagram on the right.




  • How to create a widescreen ePoster (16:9):
    • In PowerPoint:
      • In the "Design" tab, click the "Slide Size" drop down arrow, and choose "Widescreen (16:9)".
      • Alternately, you can select "Custom Slide Size" and use a width 16" wide x 9" high or 13.33" x 7.5".
      • Choose “Save as PDF”
      • If you are using a 3rd party PDF converter, choose a "Print" resolution or at least a DPI of 150 or better. The default normally works fine. It is usually set to "Print" at 300dpi.
    • In Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Adobe InDesign or any other graphics program:
      • Choose a template such as "HDTV 1080P" or "Web Large".
      • Otherwise, you can customize the document size.
      • Photoshop: Choose the "Image" menu, select "Canvas Size", and set the unit top pixels (px) and make sure the file is at least 1920x1080.
      • Adobe InDesign: Choose the "File" menu, select "Document Setup", and set the width and height to at least 1920x1080.
