Poster presentation and submission

Instructions for presenters

Here we provide instructions for presenters at 22nd IWLR. Please take a few moments to read through all the sections relevant to your presentation (oral/poster, online/in person). Please note that after the conference, we will upload the presentation materials to the workshop website, unless authors request us not to.

Guidelines for poster presentation

All posters will be available in the communication platform Slack1. Conference participants will receive an invitation to join the Slack 22IWLR workspace of the poster sessions. Here poster authors and participants will be able to interact during the conference.

File formats: the only acceptable format is a single-page PDF. If we received a file in a different format, we may attempt to convert it to a PDF document, making absolutely no guarantees as to the result achieved.

You must send your poster file to by Thursday 3th November . If the file size is too large, please use an online file sharing service. If absolutely necessary, we could provide an invite to use our institutional file sharing service.

We will send a confirmation acknowledging receipt of your file, and proceed to upload it to its individual channel in Slack.

All poster authors have the opportunity to prepare a 2-minutes lightning talk video presenting their work. These will be linked to from the Slack channels of their respective posters. The format of the talk is free, with a recommended maximum limit of five slides if prepared in presentation style. It is not mandatory to record a video, but highly advisable.Videos must be sent by Wednesday 2nd November to ensure their timely upload.

In person posters

For poster presentation at the venue, please note:

  • Poster dimensions: A0 (841×1189 mm), either portrait or landscape orientation are possible.

  • Bring your poster printed.

  • You will receive an ID code to identify the assigned stand (see Detailed Program). Tape will be provided to hang the posters (to be done by lunch break on Tuesday 8th November at the latest).

Sessions: Posters will be displayed from Tuesday to Thursday. In-person participants will be able to see them during all coffee breaks (30 minutes twice a day). There is a dedicated Posters & Sponsors session on Tuesday 8th November, starting at 16:30. In person poster presenters should be available nearby to engage with other participants (it is not required to stand by the posters during coffee breaks!)

Online posters

There will be no special times to view the virtual posters, as they will be accessible online in Slack for the whole duration of the conference. We hope that the virtual posters result in an engaging space for comment and discussion for all posters presented. The interactions in Slack should be understood to be asynchronous rather than live, accommodating users from different time zones: please do not expect a live chat.
