Your file must be submitted to the ISMRM by 18 April!
An electronic poster (E-Poster) is a poster in PowerPoint format, allowing the inclusion of movies, sounds and other multi-media formats, and presenters are encouraged to take advantage of the versatility of this medium. All multi-media E-posters will be presented at  numbered monitors in the main poster display hall. E-poster presentations are 30 minutes in length, and authors must be available for discussion at an assigned time, and an assigned computer. In addition, meeting attendees have access to all e-posters on the monitors at any other time during the meeting.
You will be informed of your program number as well your computer assignment before the meeting. However, when you arrive at the meeting, check the program book to confirm the day, time and monitor for your presentation, in case there have been last minute changes.
Multi-media E-posters must be loaded in advance of the meeting, and a site will be open for this purpose on or about 10 March. (We will soon send you complete instructions on this.) Your E-Poster file must be sent to the ISMRM by 18 April to assure availability at the computer stations at the meeting. 

Electronic Poster presentations will be available for viewing beginning on Monday, 5 May 2008. We highly recommend that you take an opportunity, well in advance of your presentation, to go to Hall D and access your presentation to ensure that it displays properly. We will have support personnel available if you find you have an issue displaying your presentation.
The maximum size of the file is 20 slides and/or 20 megabytes.

Note:  If you attended last year's meeting in Berlin, please review the e-posters online  for ideas which may be helpful in designing your presentation.
  • There should be a running title at the top of all slides. This allows people to walk up in the middle of a presentation and understand immediately which poster is being presented. This should include both program number and title.  Separate the running title and program number visually. For example, if the text and number are placed within a box of a slightly different color, they would be separated visually.
  • Each slide title should be placed in a title placeholder. This allows that title to come across in the hyperlinks on the left bar.
  • Consider putting something catchy into the title slide. Examples are a key result, a key picture, or a sentence describing the major result of the poster.
  • The first slide should show the full title of your submission.
  • The poster should be self explanatory. Text should be brief and well organized.
  • The text should make clear the significance of your research.
  • The text should include (most likely as separate elements of the poster) your hypothesis, methods, results, and conclusions.
  • Hyperlinks may be included to help navigate through the poster at the conference center. However, they will not be active on the archived versions.
  • Sound may be used for the archived version. You may record up to 10 minutes of sound through the Powerpoint “record narration” function. However, the recorded narration or other sound will not be available at the convention center.
  • A clear, simple, uncluttered arrangement is the most attractive and the easiest to read on the monitor.
  • For best legibility, it is suggested that the title lettering be at least 2"/5cm high, with authors' names and affiliations in somewhat smaller print.
  • It is suggested that type size should be at least 24 point. The typeface chosen should be a simple and clear one (e.g., Helvetica).
  • Color should be used sparingly, to provide contrast. The featured parts of the poster can be highlighted with warm colors, and the less important parts can be done in cool colors. Some suggestions for color combinations are as follows: Green on white, red on white, black on white, blue on white, white on blue, and white on black.
  • Illustrations should be simple and eye-catching, with unnecessary detail left out. If possible, convert tables to graphic displays. Pie graphs can be used to show parts of a whole, line graphs can be used to show trends or changing relationships, and bar graphs can be used to show volumes.
  • Photos should be enlarged enough to show relevant detail.
  • Patient confidentiality must be protected. No names should appear in illustrations.
  • Avoid commercial references unless mandatory. A logo or institutional identification should appear only on the first title slide. Do not use such identification as a header on each slide.
