Create and print your poster
The most successful posters are graphically rich presentations of your research that highlight and summarize the main points, with the poster presenter filling in the details in person at the session. The least effective poster format is an enlarged copy of your manuscript.
Your poster should include:
Size, fonts, and color
Print a high-resolution copy of your poster to present onsite (size must not exceed 44" x 44" [112 cm x 112 cm])
Create and submit your poster PDF
Poster presentations can be created in a number of software applications but must be exported to PDF format to submit for publication in the conference proceedings in the SPIE Digital Library. The PDF file size must be less than 100 MB. Avoid uploading multiple versions of your poster PDF. When you finish creating your PDF, check the following:
Submit your poster PDF
Your poster PDF must be received by the deadline, approximately 3 weeks before the meeting. After the submission system opens for presentations and manuscripts, using any web browser, visit https://spie.org/myaccount and sign into your account.
NOTE: The contact author or speaker must be registered before uploading. Only the contact author can submit the poster PDF. The contact author can assign a coauthor as the contact author via the submission system or by sending a request to firstname.lastname@example.org (include your paper number in the message).
Set up your poster in person
Upload your poster slam presentation
All in-person presentations are handled by our onsite presentation management system, LaunchPad. All presenters must upload their slide presentation in advance: either before the meeting, or directly to the presentation computer in the conference room. There will not be an option to use your own device. Should you require assistance with uploading or presenting, technicians will be available to assist. Always bring a back-up copy of your slide presentation and media files with you to your session onsite.
Include first name, last name, and paper number in your file name.
