• Poster Session

The poster presentation at BioTERM 2019 is divided into two phases. As you may have observed in the tentative schedule that there is a poster pitching session for poster presenters followed by the poster presentation. This poster pitching session was added to give the poster presenters an opportunity to give a podium presentation to present and highlight their research in one slide. The pitch is basically to make your work appealing to the audience through a 100 second argument as to why your research is important and why anyone should be interested in your work and visit your poster to find out more.

The final list of the poster presentation schedule will be published on the website soon. In the meantime, please download instructions for the preparation of your poster pitching slide and your poster. Please strictly adhere to the guidelines to avoid any last minute changes.

Please download template to prepare your pitching slide (only power point files (.ppt and .pptx) with widescreen format (16:9) are accepted. Please do not use animations or embedded videos. Replace the information in the slide with your information. No other size and formats will be allowed. Please mention only the name of the presenting author without other author details on the slide. Also insert the name and logo of the institute/university etc. you are affiliated to. We will add the poster ID ourselves if not provided.

The size of poster board (usable space) is 90 cm wide and 120 cm high. Use a clear typeface preferably Arial and the poster should be readable from a distance of 2-3 meters. The poster pitching session will be held on 28th Nov. and 29th Nov., whereas the poster presentation will be on 29th Nov. and 30th Nov

Poster pitching presentation is must for all poster presenters. Please enrol for the poster pitching by attaching your slide here and follow the guidelines strictly. Deadline for sending the slide and registering is Sunday 10th November allowing us to put together all slides to one slideshow. The session will be an intensive and fun session where each pitcher will hand over the microphone to the next speaker after their 100 seconds have passed.
