The posters will take place on SLACK. For this of you who have not experienced this platform before please read the instructions attached. Please upload your poster by Monday -October 19th @ 4pm. Interactions with posters and presenters can be in multiple formats. Posters can be uploaded in many file formats including .pdf and .ppt. Please be aware, as is common with many of the online formats, not only can posters be downloaded but in some cases it is recommended to help for viewing.

A separate confirmation email with additional instructions be sent to all poster presenters.

To maximize our interactions at the poster session we have introduced two new SCEP features.

1. Presenters have the option to add their own zoom links for viewers to step into their zoom room and speak directly with the presenter, you can also upload audio for helpful commentary. Posters will be available for viewing on the SLACK site from Monday evening onwards. Please feel free to leave questions and comments before the start of the meeting.
