Poster Presentations


During the Twelfth WIOMSA Scientific Symposium, presentations of accepted posters will be available online for viewing as E-Posters. . Electronic Posters or E-Posters are similar to traditional paper posters but displayed on-site on multiple large LCD television screens in the E-Poster area. For this symposium, there will be no need for printing or production of posters as all the posters will be available for viewing electronically. Please note the screens will be landscape orientation.

While E-Posters platforms will be available throughout the symposium, specific days and time for poster viewing have been set aside on Monday 10th October 2002; 11th October 2022 and 13th October 2022 from 1400HRS-1600 HRS. During these times, poster viewing will be done thematically, with several themes being presented each day. All poster presenters whose themes are being showcased should be present by their poster on their day. Poster presenters are encouraged to stand by their E-Poster screens during breaks in order to present their E- posters.

E-Posters platforms will allow users to browse by topics, search for specific content and submit comments. Viewers can email a copy of the poster to themselves. They can also leave comments on specific posters.
