How to Submit your ePoster

ASRA is proud to be partnering with ePostersLive who will provide quality and comprehensive support prior to and during the meeting. Please carefully read the instructions below on how to create and submit your ePoster. Please also remember:

  • A $75 fee (USD, plus tax where applicable) will be charged via the online ePoster system.
  • All ePosters must be submitted by Thursday, March 12, 2020, at 11:59 pm EDT (deadline will not be extended).
  • Meeting registration is also required at no later than Thursday, March 12, 2020, to be included in meeting materials.


1. Purchase your Poster Submission Code(s)


Please follow the steps below:

  • Click on the link:
  • Enter the email address you used to submit your abstract (it’s the same email address at which you are receiving this communication).
  • An automated email will be sent to you with a purchase link to click on in order to obtain/purchase your Poster Submission Code(s).
  • Keep your submission code(s) in order to submit your ePoster(s) under step 3 below.


2. Prepare your ePoster

These instructions are written for PowerPoint, but are applicable to any other software you may wish to use.

  • Use PowerPoint 2007 or newer, and set the dimensions of your poster to: 140 cm (55 in) width x 73 cm (28.5 in) height, in landscape orientation.
  • Number of pages (slides): one (1).
  • 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 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 videos.
  • Include the ASRA meeting logo in the poster header.
  • 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. If you are unsure on how to save your poster as a PDF file you can find more information and tutorials on our Support Center at
