Virtual posters should be a single landscape slide in PowerPoint (ideally) or pdf which will be displayed for two minutes on a rotating basis at strategic locations in the conference venue. This is a new type of presentation, different to talks and conventional posters, aiming to give you a chance to introduce your work. Your virtual poster should therefore aim to provide the viewer with the essential elements of your project, to stimulate further conversation about your work during the conference. You might want to consider including a small photo of yourself on the poster, so that attendees can seek you out to ask you more. Please see our example poster here for an idea of how you might lay out your work. Virtual posters should be submitted in advance to firstname.lastname@example.org by 17:00 on Friday August 31st so that we are able to compile the presentations ready for the start of the conference.
