Poster Guidelines

1. Poster Overview
Poster presentations at PCM 2020 Online will consist of two parts:
  • Poster Presentations: A collection of posters in PDF format (with/without audio) will be available at conference website for attendees to “visit” starting on October 15, 2020.

2. Poster Preparations
  • The posters can be prepared using any software (e.g., PowerPoint, Illustrator, etc.); however, they have to be saved and uploaded in PDF format (Note: your Poster PDF should be one page only).
  • There is no size constraint for the poster, we recommend using page size of at least A3 or larger.
  • The Poster could be designed as you like with requirements as below:
    √ The conference logo and paper ID(PCM****) should be clearly shown in the header
    √ Title, presenter, and affiliation information should be well indicated;
  • Please upload the well-designed poster via Submission System before October 14, 2020. It would be updated on the conference website after pre-review and confirmation.
  • Optional: Presenters may also record an optional audio/video walkthrough of their poster presentation (no longer than 10 minutes), which will act as a guided presentation for attendees to view or listen to while viewing the poster. Tips about recording your audio/video files could be found Here.
3. Poster Q&A Session
To provide attendees the opportunity to ask questions about posters, the live poster Q&A session will be holding through Microsoft Teams Meeting from 14:00 p.m. – 14:30 p.m. (GMT+8) on November 4th, 2020. Each presenter will introduce themselves and their poster topic and then take questions. Attendees are strongly encouraged to view poster materials ahead of time and to come to the session with questions already prepared. Poster presenters are particularly encouraged to view the poster materials of the other presenters in their Q&A Session.
