Please prepare your electronic poster presentation in accordance with the below specifications before submitting your e-Poster. Also, please do not enable document encryption or password protection.
Please note all presenters are required to provide a Disclosure slide to comply with the CME accreditation requirements. A slide template is available from the congress website and should be used as your introduction slide in your presentation.
Page setup: The presentation should be in landscape orientation with a screen ratio of 16:9. As an example, to adjust your slides orientation and ratio in PowerPoint 2016 follow these steps:
1. Select Design from the menu tab
2. Click on Slide Size and select Custom Slide Size. On-Screen Show (16:9) as well as slide set to Landscape.
The font size depends on the default width and height that is selected according to the above settings. Different values might require a smaller/larger font size. The maximum allowed size is 80x45cm.
Limitations: Maximum number of slides/pages per presentation/upload is 7 slides. The file size should not exceed 16 Megabytes.
File format: The presentation must be in the PPT, PPTX or PDF format to be accepted (Windows, Mac or Linux). Please note that all uploaded presentations will be converted and published in PDF format.
Animations: Avoid overlapping animated objects or serial animations. Only the final view/status per slide will be visible as all uploaded presentations will be converted and published in PDF format.

Font size: The font size should be 14pt or bigger.
Images and Tables:
A note to Apple Macintosh users: Please do not use “drag-and-drop” to insert pictures into Microsoft PowerPoint files, as graphs and images would not be displayed properly. Using the INSERT command from the menu will virtually eliminate these issues.
