Poster Guidelines

Read the Poster Guidelines Below

Deadline to submit: 
Tuesday, June 30, 2020 at 23:59 (Your Local Time)

The ISTH will again be working with MULTIEPOSTER to upload all ePosters. Abstract Presenters will receive an email from MULTIEPOSTER with detailed information shortly with instructions on how to upload their ePoster. All ePosters will be available on-demand on the ISTH 2020 Virtual Congress platform.


Publishing via ISTH Academy
As an added-value service, all presenters who submit via this platform will have their poster added to the ISTH Academy. By having your ePoster included in the ISTH Academy it will prolong the poster session experience and increase the visibility of your work for long after the meeting has finished.

Poster Upload Instructions

Poster Size:
Your ePoster should be formatted in PowerPoint or PDF as a landscape/horizontal slide that is 16:9 ratio, NOT 4:3. Presenting in 4:3 format may cause your presentation to be distorted. (There is no file size limit)

  • Please make sure you include your new abstract number that you have received in your abstract notification on your poster.

  • QR codes are not permitted on posters. 

  • Choose one of our pre-designed templates (optional).

  • Format of the poster is landscape/horizontal.

  • Place a heading that runs the full width of the poster at the top in a large-sized type.

  • The text should be no less than 8 mm (22 point font) and preferably larger.

  • Use a constant font throughout the poster.

  • Use a black and bold type to ensure legibility and let your important points stand out.

  • We suggest that you show the preferred sequence in which your poster should be reviewed; this can be done by using 3 – 5 columns so the eye movement is down the columns.

  • Highlight your main findings. Don’t hide your conclusions, consider putting them at the top of the right column or alternatively start with the Conclusions. Otherwise, we suggest that you structure your poster by Introduction, Methods, Results, and Conclusions. State your aims in the end of the introduction.

  • The figures and tables should cover approximately 50% of the poster area.


Other Recommendations: 

  • If possible, avoid abbreviations and acronyms, especially in the Conclusion section.

  • Seek simplicity, keep text to a minimum and avoid redundancies.

  • Feel free to provide one or more key references.

NEW! Audio Narration (Optional)

You will be able to add audio narration to your ePoster sections, during the final review step. To learn more about this feature, see this demo: ePoster with audio narration on sections & embedded video and a tutorial on how to record your audio narration per section here (PDF) or here (YouTube). 

While there will not be a formal poster networking session, you will be able to hear from authors if audio narration is included as part of their ePoster. All ePosters will be available on-demand on the ISTH 2020 Virtual Congress platform.

Please Be Advised

Upload your poster file ahead of the deadline if you need to coordinate the audio recording in a timely manner.



- Is there a deadline for audio narration recording?



- If I submit before the deadline but then need to re-upload with new edits, am I able to do so?



- If I re-upload a new poster, will my old audio files be deleted?

No. The audio will remain the same unless a section of the poster is removed.


- Are you limited to the number of narrations you can use?

One per section maximum.


- Can you narrate specific figures? Or only the larger sections in the ePoster template provided?

Any section can have narration (except if you send us a video to add on a section).


- Is there a time limit on the recorded narrations (per section or overall)?

No. But please keep it short and concise.


- Can audio files be uploaded?

No. The audio must be recorded online in order to be directly uploaded in the correct format on the correct section.


- When can I add audio narration?

After you submit your poster file, we will process it to an electronic poster. This can take a few hours to a few days depending on the volume we receive. You will receive an email once the audio narration is ready to be recorded.
