|The STAR 2012 poster presentation will be a
slide show session. A computerized presentation allows authors ease in
travelling instead of carrying posters. To be precise, posters have to been
displayed by computerized presentation, in a projector slide screen
Posters will be sending in electronic format (by a web platform) and have to follow these requirements:
Please design the graphical structure of the e-posters with the least possible amount of text to obtain a more efficient presentation. Please remember that any poster designed in other format (including paper)
will not be accepted.
e-Posters Deadline: May 31, 2012
NEW!!! Extended e-Posters Deadline: June 25, 2012
Please design the graphical structure of the e-posters with the least possible amount of text to obtain a more efficient presentation.
Please remember that any poster designed in other format (including paper) will not be accepted.
|Given the technical requirements for
this novel way of presenting posters, please understand that failure to meet
this deadline will result in the removal of the poster from the program.
Some relevant information about e-poster sessions with a FAQ format:
1. Will there be parallel (competing) sessions on the agenda during the e-poster sessions?
Yes, the poster sessions will compete with traditional
parallel session and symposia. Each poster’s author has to defend their
poster and answer any questionsif any under chair supervision.
2. Are the e-posters going to be
clustered with regard to overarching topics?
Scientific committee will try to establish overarching topicsthat allow e-posters to be clustered with the highest possible affinity.
It also will try to place the e-poster sessions far on agenda from other parallel
sessions with the same topic.
3. Where will be placed the STAR 2012 e-poster
sessions will be placed on the Assembly Hall for making the e-poster projection
more efficient. The Assembly Hall is the larger room of the Venue and it has a
very large screen. It is the best and most comfortable place to project the e-posters.
long are the presenters supposed to talk about their e-posters?
for e-poster presentation depends on the number of e-poster sessions and the final
number of accepted e-posters. But if we try to make a simulation: each e-poster session will
feature the same time of a parallel
session, which is 90 minutes. If a e-poster session contains 14 posters, each e-poster will have to be
exposed in 5 minutes, leaving thefinal 20 minutes of the session for questions. This time of 5 minutes could
increase if the final number of accepted e-posters was lower. Both the role of the
e-poster session chair and of course the discipline of authors will be also
decisive to obtain a good presentation outcome. So, please prepare your speech only for 5
5. Are the e-posters going to be showed again after or before the presentation by the speakers?
The two key developments related to STAR 2012 e-posters, apart from the own projection, are:
a) A file will be prepared containing all the STAR 2012 e-posters, that will be sent to all participants only a few days after the conference, and
b) In a special
room of the conference venue a set of computers for consulting any of the e-posters, so even prior to their presentation, will
be available to all participants. This procedure allows better access to all e-posters (any time during
the conference) and no problems for
people who can not access a particular e-poster session by competing with other parallel sessions.
6. Will handouts be compulsory?
You could bring handouts about your e-posters if you want. Of course it is permitted. But a file with all presented e-posters will be sent to all participants by e-mail.
We want to highlight that for a efficient development of the e-poster sessions it is necessary to establish an
e-poster submitting deadline for authors at 31th May.
e-Poster extended submitting deadline for authors at 25th June.
Please follow the e-poster submission system in the adequate format (see the instructions for making e-poster electronic format at the beginning of this page)
