eLightning Presenter Guidelines

If you are an eLightning presenter, please review all the information below.

Before the Meeting

Creating Your Interactive Poster

  • eLightning presenters will receive instructions on creating and publishing their iPoster. All posters must be created and published in the iPosters system by 15 June.
  • iPoster edits will be possible until 30 June.
  • All eLightning presenters will upload their dynamic, interactive online poster through a web-based platform. The aMuze! iPosterSessions platform is a flexible HTML based poster format that allows authors to create interactive presentations that can include:
    • high-resolution images
    • high-definition videos and animations
    • detailed charts and diagrams
    • slide shows
    • audio files
    • voice-over narrations
    • scrolling content
    • links to external data sets and other dynamic content
  • Authors may also choose to upload a simple PDF format directly to the iPosterSessions platform; however, it is highly recommended that authors utilize the customizable templates within the iPosterSessions platform.
  • Authors also have the option of recording a brief introduction or summary recording linked in the presentation.

Day of Your Presentation

  • Arrive at your eLightning theater 15-20 minutes early to talk with other presenters and locate your touchscreen monitor.
  • eLightning sessions will occur in a dedicated eLightning theater area within the poster hall.
  • Each eLightning session will be 60 minutes in length, starting with a three-minute lightning presentation from each presenter providing an overview of their dynamic, interactive poster.
  • For the remainder of the session, presenters will go to their assigned touchscreen monitor to engage in one-on-one discussion with the audience.
