The XVI ECSMGE will be launching the digital renaissance of the scientific paper poster at this year’s meeting.
In addition to physical poster boards-posters will also be displayed on 1.5m high definition plasmas located throughout the exhibition areas.
Using an iPad attached to each plasma, users can search for posters by category, key words, by author or as full text in a simple ‘swipe action’.
This unique format of presenting encourages more interaction between delegates and authors. If the author agrees, delegates can send an email from the iPad to the author to share their thoughts or simply request a meeting to increase the knowledge exchange on-site. Similarly, during the submission process all authors are asked whether they want to share their poster with other delegates, if so, users can request a high quality PDF of the poster – removing the need for low quality photos taken on mobile phones.
The E-Poster layout can be chosen from a selection of specially created templates that are easy to navigate and will bring the poster to life.
