Abstract Open-Discussion ePoster Guidelines


Open-discussion ePosters at the ICS Annual Meeting are ePoster presentations accepted to be displayed at the congress in the ePoster area and on the ICS website. Authors will have the opportunity to present their work to delegates during scheduled presentation slots.

ePoster Uploading Opens Late May

Deadline for online uploading your ePoster is Sunday the 27 September 2024.

If you do not upload by the deadline your ePoster will not be published on the ICS website. You will be able to upload your ePoster on site for presentation if necessary. Go to the ePoster helpdesk by the ePoster area in the Exhibition (be sure to upload well ahead of your session).

Your ePoster Presentation

The presentation will be facilitated with the use of an electronic poster board, on which you will upload your ePoster prior to the meeting date. The system will allow you to move around and zoom in on any section (just like a large iPad).

Presentation Time and Location

The ePoster Area is located in the exhibition area. ePoster Stations are numbered and each station will have an Session Chair that will manage the running order of your session and the Q&A. You can find the time of your presentation, ePoster station number, session details in the Abstract Centre. Please arrive at the start of your session and stay for all the presentations.

Presentation Timing

Your Presentation should be:

  • 3 minutes of oral presentation of your ePoster followed by
  • 2 minutes of discussion and questions hosted by the chair
  • Click here to find your presentation times
  • You should arrive at the ePoster hall, introduce yourself to the session chair and familiarise yourself with the ePoster system at least 15 minutes prior to the start of the session.
  • Chairs will be asked to strictly enforce the time limit on your talk. Your question time will not be considered as part of your presentation time. You should therefore practice your talk prior to the meeting with particular regard to the timing.

Your abstract will be available during the annual meeting via the 2024 programme on the website.

Discussion, Questions and Answers

At the end of your presentation you will be asked questions about your abstract. The Chair of your session will facilitate questions from the audience. If English is not your first language, and you need assistance, please bring someone to help you translate.
