Organize a virtual poster session to give folks a place to come together online to discuss their work. We make it easy and simple to organize presentations and use your existing video chat software.
We will handle all of the painful aspects of organizing a virtual poster session, including posters, presenters, and attendee management.
Manage the behind-the-scenes data necessary to pull off a successful virtual poster session, completely online.
Collect and process PDF poster uploads, formatting abstracts, and collect abstracts and other descriptive information to enable presenters to connect with their audience.
No time-consuming back-and-forth with organizations or presenters. Send secure invitations and manage details from a streamlined administrative interface.
We don't force you into a single chat platform. You and your presenters can use Zoom, Webex, Microsoft Teams, or any other provider that can provide a one-click access link. Don't want video? Simply swap in pre-recorded video links or calendaring signups for attendees to get more information.
As a self-service platform, there is nothing standing in the way of your next virtual poster session.
Enter your basic session details, including a short description and optional links to the rest of your conference program.
Enter the name and email address of your presenters, and we'll send them an invitiation to enter in their content and upload a PDF of their poster. You can sit back and track responses from our online dashboard.
Once the posters have been collected, we provide you with the tools to publish the session online. Sessions can be password-protected or publicly posted, and custom web addresses are available to share in your messaging.
Up to 10 posters for $50/package. 1 year of standard, non-redundant hosting service with email support.
Up to 10 posters for $80/package. Optional password-protected poster listing page, and a custom DNS subdomain. 1 year of dual-redundancy hosting service with email support.
Up to 100 posters for $2500/package. Optional password-protected poster listing page, and a custom DNS domain name. 1 year of hosting service, with your session on a global Content Delivery Network (CDN). Email support requests handled within 2 hours, phone support available.
Host unlimited posters on your own servers, secured within your own internal company network. Contact sales with your requirements. Starting at $10,000 for small non-profits.
Presenters complete the registration form to list the poster details, and provide a copy of the PDF so that visitors can zoom in and read the poster clearly while chatting. See an example list.
When the time comes, presenters talk with attendees about their research, have a chance learn something new, and stay connected — even when we have to stay apart.
Nope! It will probably be difficult to share any physical devices or do live demos, but if your presenters can use Zoom or Webex or another video chat app, be our guest! We have intentionally left many features optional to make it flexible for these situations.
Orginally, we were bummed out about all the conferences we were missing... Conference/workshop Poster Sessions are huge avenues to learning about what's new and sharing our own work. As the situation persisted, we realized that there are a LOT of people that really need easy ways to share online. As we looked for options, we realize many of them were overcomplicated and difficult to use (both as an organizer and a presenter).
We need an email address to protect against spam uploads, and it allows organizers and presenter to edit or remove their content later. We do not sell addresses, and will only send you messages about your poster sessions.
Altruistically, we hope that academic progress doesn't stagnate because of extended quarantine and stay-at-home orders, especially when modern technology and video chat tools exist. A little more selfishly, we also hope you'll check out the app we're building to provide project management tools specifically for academic research teams. Even before COVID-19 we thought it would be useful, but find it is increasingly relevant for remote working students!
