Creating your Virtual Poster for a Common Ground Conference.
Virtual poster sessions are designed for presenters who are not able to be present in person at the conference. Travel, funding, and schedule can sometimes make it difficult for participants to attend the conference in-person. In order to support more inclusive participation, virtual poster sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar, bringing global ideas to the local spaces.
Virtual posters offer a very flexible format, and there are several methods you can use to optimize your presentation. The goal of your poster presentation should always be readability. Additionally, content is important, but be sure to keep your message concise.
If you wish to include a QR tag in your poster with embedded information, you can easily find a free website to create one. These sites take text input, and generate a QR tag image that you can download and import into your presentation.
Include the following components in your poster presentation:
