All Posters: Pre-Conference Uploads

All Posters (Remote and In-Person) are required to upload pre-conference materials for their poster.

What is required?

Remote posters must upload PDF of their poster. 10mb size limit.
In-Person posters must upload PDF of their poster or a long/extended abstract. 5mb size limit.

Short poster presentation video, 2-3 minutes in length, is optional but strongly encouraged. MP4 format only. 50mb size limit.


How and where do I upload these required poster materials?

All poster presenters will receive an email from alerts@ativsoftware.com on October 8. This special email contains a link for presenters to upload materials. The link will only function if the presenter is registered for the conference.

SAVE the email you receive from alerts@ativsoftware.com. It will be sent to you one-time on October 8. 


What is the upload deadline?

Upload deadline is October 27. Any presenters missing uploads will receive a reminder on October 25 from alerts@ativsoftware.com.


What if I need to replace my uploaded files?

Use the same link provided in your October 8 email from alerts@ativesoftware.com to remove and replace your files, if needed.


What if I never receive the email from alerts@ativsoftware.com or I cannot find it?

You may contact abstracts@asms.org to request re-send of your email. 


How do I record my poster's short video?

There are a few options but the most ubiquitous is probably Zoom. Start a meeting and record! PowerPoint also has the option to record a voice narration on top of slides. Whichever method you use, MP4 format is required and file size limit is 50mb. Videos should not exceed 3 minutes in length.


How do I format my Poster PDF?

There is no specified sizing for your poster PDF upload. We encourage you to consider that most attendees will be viewing your poster PDF on a laptop screen. Multiple pages are fine, but we encourage a single page format if feasible for you. File size limit is 10mb.
