You may have heard that Congress will feature ePosters for the first time this year. But what exactly does that mean? An ePoster uses a large monitor and computer to display multimedia versions of a scientific poster versus the traditional printed poster. It gives the presenter an opportunity to more effectively convey information that would not necessarily be possible with a traditional printed poster, and it enhances visualization to attract interest of attendees. This method of presentation is being used by more than 25 poster presenters at the ONS 40th Annual Congress.

You can attend the ePoster presentations during the following sessions held in the Orange County Convention Center Valencia Lobby:

ePoster presenters will stand next to a large TV monitor to present their poster.  The monitors have the capability to zoom in on sections of the poster during a five-minute presentation of the work. The presenters will be available for questions during these times. You can get a preview of the ePosters in the poster session description now.

More than 200 posters total will be presented between the ePosters, general posters, and research poster sessions. In addition to the 1 CNE contact hour you will receive for attending a poster session, you can earn additional contact hours by independently reviewing the posters. For every 20 posters you review, you’ll receive 1 contact hour. Look in your conference guide for a worksheet to help you track the posters you review.

      Hi David,

      In your evaluation at myoutcomes.ons.org, you’ll see a link for “anytime posters.” It will ask you how many posters you reviewed and calculate the number of additional contact hours you have earned. Please let me know if you have any questions. Have a great day!

    Hi! The link to the ePosters is not working. Thanks!

    • Caitlin Ionadi

      Hi Sue,

      I apologize. These 2015 Congress ePosters are no longer available. The 2016 ePosters will become available in April 2016.

      Have a great day!

        Hello Jennifer,
        My name is Senay. My abstract has been selected for a poster presentation for the ONS 41st Annual Congress. I am very excited. First time I will present a poster in a different country. Can you do me a favour for me, please? Can you send me an example poster? Thanks.
        Sincerely.

          Congratulations! I’ll pass your email address along to our education team and have them send you an example poster.

    Hi! I was wondering how I could get access to a poster presentation from the 2015 conference or access to the authors who presented a certain poster. I found an article on Medscape.com that references a poster presentation with information that I am interested in for clinical practice at the facility where I work. It was a presentation regarding premedication before blood transfusions. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Caitlin Ionadi

      Hi Jennifer,

      We’re looking into finding that poster for you and will be in touch with more information. Have a great day!

  • Senay

    Thanks Caitlin. I will be very happy.
