Instructions for E-Poster Presentations and E-Poster Viewing

Best E-Poster Presentation Award:  Top 10 E-Poster Presentations are Each Awarded €300*

*In order to be eligible for the award, authors must be in attendance at the congress to present their research.  Only those e-Posters, which have been uploaded by 19 February 2020, using the link sent to the submitting author by email, will be considered for e-Poster prizes.  All awards will be paid post congress.  

All e-Poster Presentations will be evaluated based on the below criteria:

  • Scientific Quality
  • Accuracy and Precision of Methodology
  • Originality
  • Novelty
  • Poster Design

E-Poster Discussion presenters have each been allocated 2-3 minutes to present their E-Poster, including time of discussion at the E-Poster screens.

E-Poster Viewing abstracts will have no specific presentation date and time. The presenter may stand by the E-Poster Viewing screens in order to present their E-Poster during breaks. 

Electronic Posters or E-posters are similar to traditional paper posters but displayed on-site on a large LCD television screen and are available for electronic viewing at all times for participants.

E-Posters will be available at the E-poster stations at the Congress, on the EPA 2020 website during the Congress and in an online archive for one year following the Congress. Viewers will be able to easily find and browse E-posters and download the posters in PDF format when permitted by the presenter.

These posters do not require printing or production of materials – as your work will be presented electronically.

All authors will be contacted for all preparation details and technical aspects of E-posters.
