Plant Biology 2019 will be accepting 200 E-Posters!

What are E-Posters?

E-Posters are on-line interactive, multimedia research presentations that are displayed electronically on large format HD monitors at the conference.

Can I see an example?

Yes! You can view a live example* by clicking here. This E-poster example was created by Zoë Migicovsky, a Postdoctoral Fellow at Dalhousie University.

How do I know if I am presenting an e-poster?

During the abstract submission process you were given the option to select an e-poster or physical poster. If you selected that you wanted to present  an e-poster before June 1st, you will be able to create and present an e-poster. If you selected that you wanted to present a physical poster, but now want to present an e-poster. Please email to be added to the waitlist. Please note: Primary presenters must submit a completed abstract and register for Plant Biology 2019 by June 21st, 2019 to present an e-poster.

When will I receive instructions on how to create an e-poster?

Poster presentation acceptance notifications will be sent out in June. Shortly  after, individuals who selected that they wanted to present an e-poster will be emailed instructions on how to create an e-poster. If you notified us that you wanted to present an e-poster before June 1st, and  you didn’t recieve an email with instructions by July 1st, please email

Will there be technical support available if I have questions during the e-poster creation process?

Yes. There will be technical support available for you. The technical support information will be provided to you via email.

How do I create an E-Poster?

It’s all online and digital. You just log in to the online editor and create your E-Poster from any Internet-connected computer. You can include high resolution images, high definition videos, sound files, slide shows and links to external web resources. You can add as much text and media content as you need to present your research with the detail it deserves; there are no limits.

Do you mean there’s no paper to print or carry?

Correct! There’s no need to pay money to create a physical poster or carry around a poster tube! You just show up at the conference and your E-Poster is there, ready to be searched and explored on the E-Poster Galleries, which are displayed on all of the HD screens.

How do attendees access the content?


Attendees will enjoy a completely different learning experience when exploring an E-Poster. At Plant Biology 2019 there will be 50 video screens for 200 posters (any screen can display any of the 200 posters). Content boxes scroll and expand at the tap of a finger. Tap on an image (a photo, diagram or table) and it enlarges to it’s full size. If you’ve loaded up a video, they can watch it full screen. If you’ve added a narration, they can listen to your presentation (while they scroll through your E-Poster) even when you are not there. Your links to external datasets and other dynamic online material will add context and keep your presentation up-to date even after the conference has passed.

Can attendees contact me for more information?

Yep. There’s a “Contact Author” button at the bottom of each E-Poster. So, if you’re not there when they explore your presentation, they can fill in a request for more information or, perhaps, a meeting to discuss your research while you’re still at the Conference. And since the E-Posters are online outside of the poster area and after the conference, they can still get in touch. Your email address is hidden, so it’s up to you if you want to respond.

Can I share my E-Poster with others?

Yes you can. You’ll find a Share button on your editing template when you log in. And, if you want, A “Get Poster” button will be displayed on your E-Poster, enabling visitors to receive a link to your presentation in an email. You can opt out of this if you don’t want your presentation to be available online after the conference.
