Sharing Your Poster

You may upload your poster (after it has been accepted and you have confirmed to present) as a PDF file via Manage Abstract. Once your poster is uploaded, a link to download the poster will appear next you your abstract in the online program.

Providing a Recorded Audio Summary

You may upload a short audio file (after your abstract has been accepted and you have confirmed to present) as an MP3 file via Manage Abstract. Once uploaded, a link to listen to the audio file will appear next you your abstract in the online program. The intention is that presenters provide 1-5 minutes of a short summary of the work so that even if the poster is not attended, viewers will be able to hear a lead-in summary from the author.
