Find out how to optimise your poster submissions by displaying them in the poster gallery. This feature is only available in the Professional Conference package.
The guidance below is for event administrators/ organisers. If you are an end user (eg. submitter, reviewer, delegate etc), please click here.
NB: Posters can only be uploaded in a PDF format.
Setting up your poster gallery will need to be undertaken in stages. The first stage is to set your submission form up to collect posters.
Scroll down the list of questions to add a Poster upload question, then click CREATE SELECTED QUESTION.
Fill in the details (see Question types for further guidance).
At the bottom of the question fields, tick the checkbox next to 1) Poster gallery upload.(checking this will automatically restrict any uploads to pdfs only)
If you would like to enable users to download the posters, you should also tick 2) Include poster download button checkbox. In order for the posters to be visible in the program, you will also need to tick 3) In program.
Click Create Question at the bottom of the page when you are done.
Adding other poster-related questions
If you require, you can set other questions to allow submitters to add further details about their posters.
You can add a question about keywords, to enable searching by keyword in the poster gallery. See the poster gallery view below.
NB: Only one of the poster keywords can be added (1,2 and 3 below)
The options are:
1) Submitters choose just one keyword from a choice created by the administrator
2) Submitters can choose multiple keywords from a choice created by the administrator
3) Submitters can add their own keywords
If a submitter has a video to supplement their poster, you can add option 4.
