What is an online poster session?
The online poster session will take place on Twitter. A "poster" is a single tweet with four images and with a brief summary, as shown here
To maximize interaction during the Poster Session, we recommend setting up a personal or laboratory Twitter account, if you do not have one already. This will ensure that you will be able to interact with other posters in the session as well.
If you do not have access to Twitter, please send your poster to firstname.lastname@example.org
with "Poster" as the email subject. We will send your poster out as a tweet from the official @nanofabPOM
Twitter account. Please include your contact information (email address, etc.) on the poster slides, to facilitate further interaction with anyone interested in your work. Preparing your images and tweet for posting
To ensure that your images are the correct aspect ratio, we have prepared a PowerPoint template
. This series of four slides already has the correct aspect ratios and font sizes to accommodate twitter. The background is optional and just provides visual guidance. A few aspects useful to consider when designing the images and when posting:
- A single tweet can contain 4 images max
- Aspect ratio and legibility of images on Twitter
- Hashtags for increasing visibility and associating poster with conference
A typical text for your tweet should contain the right hashtags (with #nanofabPOM) and tag (@ your co-authors or affiliation and @nanofabPOM)
Example: We demonstrated this advanced integration of photonics and biosensing through technique A, beneficial for applications B and C. @Authors @Lab @nanofabPOM #nanofabPOM <poster in 4 images>
The #nanofabPOM must always be included. Links to more details on preparing your poster for Twitter along with an example and the template:
