Electronic Poster (E-Poster)

CSWE exclusively uses a digital e-poster format (60 minutes, up to four presenters). All accepted e-posters must be submitted in advance to our e-poster vendor, ePosterboards. Deadline to submit to accepted e-posters will be announced.

ePosterboards will host a webinar for accepted e-poster presenters. Date to be announced.

Important: Please bring your presentation on a flash drive to APM as a backup.

How to create your e-poster/Specifications:

  • Posters must be created in Powerpoint, using one of these sample templates:
  • Only landscape presentations are accepted.
  • Slide/poster size must be 40.97" × 23.04" (16:9 ratio). 
  • Recommended font size is 28 pt or larger, so main text can be easily read.
  • Single or multiple pages/slides may be used. Average presentation size is 3–5 pages/slides. Too many pages can slow down the ability to move between pages/slides.
  • Poster presenters stand beside their posters and discuss their work one-on-one or in small groups with attendees.
  • Videos, hyperlinks, animations, and/or QR codes can be used in the e-posters.
Additional requirements:
  • Save your e-poster file as: last name, first name, 3-digit final session number (available from the official schedule sent to each presenter in early August).
  • Limit your ePoster file to 100 MBs or less.
  • Each display area consists of a 47" flat-panel monitor, mobile stand, shelf, Mac mini with mouse device or surface touchscreen tablet, and cable connectors.
  • Presentations will be set up to advance manually using navigation buttons embedded into the presentations by our ePoster vendor.
  • Design services can be purchased, at additional cost, from our vendor.
