An ePoster is a digital medium used to communicate a key idea related to research: It presents that idea in verbal and graphic ways. Unlike an oral presentation, an ePoster does (most) of the talking—it should stand on its own, be self-explanatory (even as it enables conversations with viewers). Click here for hints on preparing your ePoster, ePosters will be displayed on screens in the catering and exhibition area for the duration of the conference.
