Poster instructions

Posters will be displayed in electronic form only through dedicated screens, and traditional, printed versions will not be accepted. Participants presenting a poster contribution are kindly requested to provide: 

  • An electronic copy of their poster in .pdf format

  • A one-slide presentation summarizing the contribution to be used for the poster review

  • A close-up picture of the presenter to be used for the poster display

All the material should be uploaded to the timetable of the conference by May 20th, 2022. We kindly ask all the presenters to make sure the file names start with “poster,” “summary” and “picture,” respectively.


Poster will be displayed on 50-inch screens, with an overall active area of 61.6 x 109.5 cm, and a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels, with a portrait orientation. A few dedicated stations, equipped with a special presentation mode, will be available on site to browse the entire poster program for the entire duration of the conference. To maximize their visibility, all presenters are strongly encouraged to provide the requested material by the May 20th deadline, so that it can be uploaded on the browsing stations. 


The close-up picture of the presenter will be automatically included in the graphical display by the system, and there is no need for the authors to manually insert it in the layout of the poster. The same holds for any additional information related to the conference. The suggested size of the posters is that of the SO 216 A1 standard: 59.4 x 84.1 cm, with an aspect ratio of 1:1.414. Due to the shape of the screen, and considering the space occupied by the top banner inserted by the system, an aspect ratio up to 1:1.5 can be effectively exploited. On the other hand, less oblong aspect ratios will result in a net loss of useful space at the bottom of the screen, and are therefore discouraged.


Note that the electronic version of the poster provided by the author will be converted to a raster image for the purpose of the display on the conference screens, and presenters should avoid using exceedingly small graphical elements of any type and/or low-resolution plots and images. As a final cross-check prior to submission, you can convert your poster into a 2k raster image, (e.g., in .png or .jpeg format) and verify that it is displayed correctly on your computer screen.

For reference, the image below illustrates the final appearance of a sample poster display on the conference monitors.
