Posters will be presented in two forms this year: (1) a pdf, and (2) as part of a video loop. Thus we are requesting three files for your poster.
1) A PDF poster. We recommend that this be designed in landscape, and the font of sufficient size to be read when sized to a laptop screen. With that said, people will be able to zoom, etc.
2) Optionally a mp4 video (3-4 minutes long): The video will be shown in a video loop at each hub, as well as viewable via the webpage. The video should be a short, 3-4 minute elevator spiel about the research in your poster. The most three popular videos will also be shown in the Friday morning plenary session.
Aspect ratio: 16:9
Resolution: As high as possible, up to 1920 x 1080. We realise many people may not be able to record video at this resolution, which is fine.
Duration (video): <4 minutes.
3) a jpeg file. This file will be used as on the webpage gallery of posters, and (if you don’t submit a video) as a still frame in a video loop showing all the posters that will be shown at each hub.
Aspect ratio: 16:9
Resolution: 1920 x 1080.
We request that you name your files: Firstname_Lastname.pdf; Firstname_Lastname.jpg; Firstname_Lastname.mp4, and upload them here: https://www.dropbox.com/request/PGx6sLyeFddHj9N8qBoU To allow time to make the video loop and upload posters to the webpage, please submit your files by 8pm aest July 7, 2021.
Please pay attention to your font size for the videos/jpegs. These formats do not support vectorized fonts and the loop shown at each hubs won’t allow viewers to zoom in. Small fonts are likely to be illegible.
There will also be questions and answer sessions for posters. More details on when your sessions is scheduled will be released in the future.
We suggest using the record function in zoom to make your videos. A good guide to using zoom can be found in this pdf.
