Important Notes:

Poster presentations give authors an opportunity to acquaint conference attendees with the fundamentals of their program, special project, or study analysis quickly and easily.


ePosters (required for in-person and virtual presenters)

All presenters are required to upload a PDF of their poster to be viewed on the IDWeek Interactive Program website. In addition to uploading your poster, poster presenters will also record a 5-minute presentation that will be made available to registered attendees on-demand for IDWeek 2023 through the Interactive Program (this website).


All electronic posters and narration will be uploaded prior to the conference and made available to attendees in the Interactive Program Planner (this website). Attendees will be able to browse through all ePosters with the ability to filter and sort based on author name and category. Posters and audio will be available online for a minimum of three years.

Virtual Poster Presenters

Virtual Poster Presenters will not be presenting "live" online. Virtual presenters will not need to log on at the scheduled presentation time that is listed on the preparation email. The audio recording will be the only way for you to speak about your poster to attendees. Additionally, Presenters who opted into the Q&A and Discussion feature (more information below) will be asked to log in to the site between the dates of Oct. 11 - Oct. 25 to answer questions and participate in the discussion on their presentation page. IDWeek recommends that presenters who are not able to attend the meeting in-person, ask a colleague who is attending in-person to bring and hang your poster onsite to ensure maximum exposure to your poster.

In-Person Poster Presenters

In order to hang your poster, you must be registered for IDWeek and have a badge that will give you access to Exhibit Hall B and C.  All posters must be posted on the boards by Thursday, October 12th at 10 a.m. and must remain posted until Saturday, October 14th at 6 p.m.

Poster set-up: Thursday, October 12 from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.
Poster removal: Saturday, October 14 from 6 p.m. – 6:30 p.m

IDWeek is not responsible for any posters left after 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, October 14.

Please note that presenters must be at their poster boards during the poster session on their assigned days.


Q&A and Discussion Board

IDWeek continues to encourage interaction and discussion between abstract presenters and viewers by enabling Q&A and Discussion functionality on the site. Presenters can opt in to this functionality, it is not mandatory. This feature will allow registered attendees only to post questions directly on your presentation page, and you will be able to login and answer them. There will also be a discussion board where attendees can leave comments regarding the presentation. Presenters who opt in will be asked to login to the site during specified dates to answer questions and participate in the discussion on their presentation page.
