Posters + ePoster Instructions and Information

At INS 2024, we are delighted to offer you the opportunity to create an ePoster (which will be available on the congress App and on-site) in addition to the required paper poster.

  • Paper Poster presenters are encouraged to be in the vicinity of their poster during breaks, in order to be available to answer questions from attendees and hold informal discussions.
  • ePoster presentations will not have a dedicated session time and will be available for viewing on a large screen at an ePoster station located near the Exhibition area and will also be available on the congress app. Only ePosters of registered participants will be displayed in the ePoster Gallery.

Please see further details below about each type of poster.

 

As a Poster presenter you will need to:
