ePosters must be uploaded using the link sent to the first author in January 2024, and submitted no later than January 24, 2024. After the poster submission deadline, you will need to reach out to Amber Brown (email@example.com) with any questions or edits to posters.

ePosters are viewed with a web-based PDF viewer that renders the PDF using the Canvas element in HTML. Although a PDF’s text and images may be vector graphics with unlimited resolution, they are rendered to a canvas that is not unlimited in resolution, especially on iOS phones. When zooming or panning the canvas is merely zoomed and panned, but the PDF is not re-rendered. This is important as to prevent lag for the user. The downside is that the PDF quality may start to appear fuzzy. You will need to set your page size correctly as shown above for optimized viewing.
Note: In addition to your scheduled poster presentation, ePosters will be available to all registered attendees on the WORLDSymposium Mobile App, starting Monday, February 5 at 3:00 PM PST, once the content embargo is lifted.
“Thumbnail” tiles of posters will be visible in the Mobile App; however, the actual poster PDF files will not be available to attendees until 3:00 PM PST on February 5, 2024.
The printed posters will be visible to attendees starting at 3:00 PM PST on Monday, February 5, and will be available through Thursday, February 8, 2024 to attendees at the live meeting. ePosters will also be available in the On Demand program from February 14 – March 14, 2024 for attendees who purchased the On Demand option.
