E-poster submission

We are going to host during the conference a poster session aiming at advertising research done in various KSA universities and partner labs, as well as promoting exchange of ideas and ideas for future collaborations. 

The poster sessions will be fully based on e-posters (screens). We will provide audio and video facilities for this event. Please follow the steps below to submit your abstract and e-poster if accepted. 


1. Submit your abstract

Deadlines: 

Please send us an abstract (huiping.chen@kaust.edu.sa) describing your work before December 30th

Abstracts should be in word format, 1 page maximum, 300 words maximum for the main text, 1 picture maximum (not mandatory), and include a clear title, authors names, affiliation, main text and references. 

We will then evaluate and provide a decision on acceptance by January 31st


2. Create your e-Poster

Researchers with accepted abstracts will get the opportunity to present their e-poster at the conference.  

Please design your poster using whichever software you wish (provided you can save it in .pdf format), and send it directly to huiping.chen@kaust.edu.sa 


Set the dimensions of your poster to:

                       LANDSCAPE: 140cm width x 73cm height.

 Number of pages (slides): one

      • Make sure your text and background have a large contrast (dark lettering on a light background or the reverse).
      • The monitors are full high definition and therefore the letters on-screen look nice and smooth. It's generally advised though, that for electronic posters to be read on-screen, a minimum 24-28 point size (or bigger) for body text fonts is used, to ensure optimal legibility from the usual distance of 3-5 ft. A little larger text (e.g.: of up to 32 pt size) might also be a good idea as it will provide a comfortable reading from an even larger distance, such as up to 8 ft.
      • For embedded images prefer .jpeg or .png file formats in a resolution of 72 or 96 dpi. 
      • Do not use animated effects, "animations" and animated videos.
      • Before submitting, save your poster as a PDF file. All recent versions of PowerPoint and most other software applications allow you to save your poster as a PDF file from the "File > Save as" menu or through the "File > Print > as .PDF" option.
