Poster Competition (IMPORTANT: Read carefully the iPoster Information below)
All undergraduate students (not selected as oral presenters) who submit an abstract, will be eligible for the poster competition. Those choosing to participate in the iPoster competition must have their iPoster published by 5:00 pm on January 4, 2019, and finalized by January 19th, 2019 by 1:00 pm so judges can start their initial review. You must also participate in the 2 minute presentation to the judges summarizing your research project/iPoster, including the potential for future applications/commercialization. Ten iPoster awards will be presented at the awards banquet on Saturday, January 19, 2019. Due to the high number of poster submissions, an additional poster session was added on Sunday. The top posters on Sunday will be recognized before the close of the General session on Sunday afternoon.

What are iPosters?
iPosters are interactive, multimedia research presentations that will be displayed electronically on large format HD touchscreen monitors at the conference.

How do I create an iPoster?
It’s all online and digital. You just log in to the online editor and create your iPoster from any Internet-connected computer. You can include high resolution images, high definition videos, sound files, and slide shows. You can add as much text and media content as you need to present your research with the detail it deserves.

Do you mean there’s no paper to print or carry?
Nope. You just show up at the conference and your iPoster is there, ready to be searched and explored on the iPoster directories, which are displayed on all the HD screens.

How do attendees access the content?
Attendees will enjoy a completely different learning experience when exploring an iPoster. Content boxes scroll and expand at the tap of a finger. Tap on an image (a photo, diagram, or table) and it enlarges to its full size. Videos can also be viewed full screen. Listen to a narration of the presentation (while scrolling through the iPoster) even when the author is not present.

Can I share my iPoster with others?
Yes, you can. You’ll find a Share button on your editing template when you log in.

What’s next?
Once all abstracts are submitted, you will receive an email invitation containing your personal login credentials and detailed instructions on how to create your iPoster submission.

When you log in the first time, you will be able to choose from a number of K-INBRE templates and then create your iPoster on-line. You’ll find links to instructions, tutorials, FAQs, and the iPoster Support Desk. You can log in from any internet-connected computer, using your user name and password. Check out the tutorials here.

When can I start?
You will receive your login credentials in December, from k-inbre@kumc.edu. We strongly recommend that you set up your template as soon as you receive your login information. This will give you time to familiarize yourself with the template editor prior to creating your poster.

What are the Deadlines?
You will need to publish your iPoster by January 4th, 2019 at 5:00 pm to hold your place in the competition. You can still make changes after this date, but all posters must be finalized by January 19, 2019 at 1:00 pm so judges can begin their initial review.

iPoster Setup
The iPoster monitors will be located in the Ballroom. Each monitor will be numbered corresponding to an abstract number in the symposium program. Schedules will be available at the registration table.

IMPORTANT! Friday, January 19th from 3:00 to 4:30 pm, you are encouraged to test your iPoster in the Ballroom during early check-in/reception. You may use any monitor; all iPosters can be pulled up from the directory. Your iPoster may look somewhat different, on the large format touchscreen, from your computer screen. Make sure all features are working properly. If you have any questions or need assistance a representative from iPosters will be available to assist you.

iPoster Session Schedule (Saturday, January 19, 2019, 3:30-6:30pm)
The poster session is divided into three sessions:

  • iPoster Session I 3:30-4:30pm: Monitors/Abstracts numbered 1-40
  • iPoster Session II 4:30-5:30pm: Monitors/Abstracts numbered 41-80
  • iPoster Session III 5:30-6:30pm: Monitors/Abstracts numbered 81-103

iPoster Session Schedule (Sunday, January 20, 2019, 9:40-11:10am)
The poster session is divided into two sessions:

  • iPoster Session V 10:25-11:10am: Monitors/Abstracts numbered 137-173

How do I know when I will present?
Your iPoster monitor will have the same number as your abstract number in the symposium booklet, so you can identify where and when you will present. You can also find the poster session map here. An alphabetical list of the poster presenters can be found here. Please transition quickly when your poster session ends, to allow the next presenter time to prepare. Stop by the iPoster help desk or the registration desk, if you have questions or need help pulling up your poster.

iPoster Judging
K-INBRE faculty representatives and industry judges selected by BioKansas will visit your monitor during the iPoster sessions. Please prepare a 2-minute summary of your research project/poster and include the potential for future applications/commercialization.

  • Please be available at your monitor during your assigned session to discuss your research with the judges, as the judges will advance through the iPosters very quickly.
  • You may choose to opt out of presenting the two-minute summary to the judges, but you will not be eligible for a poster award.
  • You are encouraged to visit your colleagues’ iPosters when not presenting.
