Professional and Student ePosters Guidelines
ePosters (just like infographics) are graphic visual representations of information, data, or knowledge intended to present information quickly and clearly. They can improve cognition by utilizing graphics to enhance the human visual system's ability to see patterns and trends.
ePosters will be featured in an online gallery within the virtual meeting platform that is hosting DIA 2021. ePoster presenters will upload a PDF of their poster prior to the meeting. Attendees will be able to scroll through and search ePosters throughout the duration of the virtual meeting.
ePosters will run continuously during the meeting. There are no formal or LIVE ePoster presentations during the meeting.
ePoster presenters are required to upload a PDF of their poster. Presenters are also encouraged to upload a self-recorded video, handout, and abstract to further showcase their research and promote a dialogue with attendees. DIA has developed a set of resources to help you develop and create your ePoster.
