Congratulations on being accepted as a poster presenter at 12APFSSH/8APFSHT at the Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Centre. The information below provides guidelines, recommendations and tips on how to design and structure your presentation. Please also read the specifications before preparing your presentation. A PowerPoint template is provided under the template tab; this is optional and we encourage you to use your own templates.
Look at the example Digital Posters, read through the guidelines and FAQs, and download the PowerPoint template to use as a guide. Think of the best way you can get your point across within the 3 slide limit. Consider embedding an audio or video recording of yourself presenting the Digital Poster.
The poster website will be available for 12 months after the event, so if delegates miss your presentation you can still inform them by providing a link to the Digital Poster.
Yes! However, we are converting from PowerPoint to HTML format - most of the PowerPoint functions are maintained during this process, but some may not be supported. Stick to basic animations and transitions or contact the help desk to see if what you want to use will work.
Check out the program. Each poster and presentation will be viewed via a pop-up.
Click on the "Recover Login Details" underneath the logins on the presenter home page. Input the email you registered for the conference with. An email will be resent to your this address. Check your spam and junk inboxes incase the email has been marked as spam
If you can see your Digital Poster’s filename under the ‘Your Files’ section, then it has successfully uploaded. If you don't see your file, then there has been an issue with the upload. This could be due to file size or internet connection. Try refreshing your browser and uploading again. If it's still not visible you can contact the help desk and our support staff can help with the upload.
Make sure you have answered the post-upload questions as these pertain to how your info is displayed on the Digital Poster website. For example: Do you want to allow delegates to download a PDF or contact you via email or social media? If you have allowed such permissions, make sure your details are up-to-date. You can see what details we have in the system after you have logged in to your portal and navigated to ‘Update My Details’.
Your portal allows for multiple uploads. So if you would like submit your own PDF version of your Digital Poster or you have used media in your poster and you need to upload the files in addition to your poster, please do so through the portal at the same time as your Digital Poster upload.
We convert all the posters to HTML so they can be viewed on the website. Please allow up to 72hrs for your Digital Poster to be made available for preview. You will receive an email from us letting you know that it's ready.
Sometimes formatting shifts occur and we can definitely fix them up. Contact the help desk to let us know the issue and what slide is looking different, and we will reconvert the file for you!
You can navigate to the ‘Insert’ tab in the PowerPoint toolbar, from there click on ‘Audio’ and choose either ‘Audio on my PC’ or ‘Record Audio’. If you have already recorded your audio, browse to your file and click insert. Do not drag your file from your browser window onto the slide. If you want to record directly into the slide, choose the ’Record Audio’ option and it will start recording. Most smartphone headphones have a microphone that can also be used.
Click on the video you want to play automatically, then click on ‘Animations’ in the top toolbar. From here, you can click on ‘Animation Pane’ which will open up all the animations within your slide. The video will be highlighted. Use the dropdown to change the video to ‘With Previous’.
For PowerPoint for Windows you can export your Digital Poster as a video if you want to maintain all your animations, transitions and audio commentary. You can do this by going to ‘File’ down to ‘Export’ down to ‘Create a Video’ and choose ’Use recorded timings and narrations’ then click ‘Create Video’.
Your Digital Poster will be displaying on dedicated poster terminals throughout the exhibition. Check that your Digital Poster is displaying correctly and familiarise yourself with how to use the touchscreen.
Log in to your portal and choose the "SHARE Digital Poster" button from the left hand menu. There will be a couple of options and quick links to post your a link to your page or you can just copy the link and go.
The website will remain live from the start of the conference to 12 months after the event.
No problem! You will need to contact the help desk and we will make a note to remove your poster on the last day of the event.
We have an email system in place to help with any enquiries relating to creating your Digital Poster. Click the link below to email your enquiry. APFSSH2020@paperlessevent.com.au
