Below is a list of questions from previous workshop attendees on the proper design, formatting and layout of an ePoster for the Research Conference.
You can make an appointment with the IT Help Desk and we will give you access to a 47” monitor so that you can test out your ePoster and see what it looks like displayed.
A mouse device is provided with each ePosterBoard display so that you can advance your presentation at your own discretion.
Yes, the ePosterBoard company will have techs available.
Students doing the poster sessions need to be able to give a one minute “elevator speech” and answer questions to whoever walks up at anytime during their 60 minute time slot. Those giving individual oral presentations are given specific guidelines and instructions to fit their presentation into ten minutes.
You are not limited to only one slide. Your ePoster can use multiple slides with custom transitions and navigation. See the ePoster guidelines document.
The actual useable screen size is 40.97” x 23.04” The PPT templates available for download are already formatted to this size.
Each ePosterBoard electronic display consists of a 47-inch flat-panel monitor, mobile stand, shelf, computer, mouse, device, and cable connectors.
For Adelphi Research Day we recommend landscape-oriented presentations. If you must use a portrait presentation please contact your adviser ASAP before April 14 to see if a portrait-oriented monitor will be available.
PowerPoint is required to develop the presentation of your ePoster. PowerPoint 2010 is available on all computers in campus computer labs. Save all files to a portable USB (thumb) drive.
Suggestion is 3 to 5 slides depending on how they will be presented.
Your ePoster file size should not exceed 100 MB, including any video files. Video length should not exceed 5 minutes.
Your PowerPoint slides can be setup to advance automatically or by mouse-click. A mouse device is provided with each ePoster so that you can advance your presentation at your own discretion.

Yes, but we recommend that all presenters have all presentation content uploaded before the session and bring all materials on a USB flash drive the day before as instructed.
