The American Heart Association has developed an exclusive online venue where attendees of the International Stroke Conference are able to login (using last name and badge number) and view all scientific posters presented at the meeting. All posters uploaded to the ePosters online portal have the opportunity to include an audio and video counterpart to their presentations. 

As a poster presenter, it is mandatory for you to upload your poster to the ePoster site. An e-mail with instructions on how to upload to the site was/will be sent to all poster presenters in early 2023 from [email protected]. Benefits of uploading your ePoster with audio and video:

  • Broader reach of your study: Thousands of attendees can access your science through ePoster workstations or their own computers by logging in to the International Stroke Conference Web site.
  • ePosters with audio gives you the opportunity to pre-record a brief discussion of your study to enhance and reinforce the information on your poster.

Moderated Poster and Poster Presenters: You must attend the meeting in person in order to present your poster. During the assigned poster presentation time, you MUST attend your poster for the entire time to answer questions from attendees. If you are unable to attend the meeting in-person this year due to travel restrictions, please ask a co-author who is attending the meeting to present the poster in your place. If no co-author is available to present the poster in-person, please contact [email protected]

Online Submission for Poster Presentations: ePosters

Instructions to upload your poster electronically were/will be sent to you via e-mail in early 2023. Please check your spam/junk filter if you do not see the e-mails in your Inbox and add this address to your contact list: [email protected]. Poster presenters, please remember that it is mandatory for you to upload your poster electronically prior to the conference in order for the virtual attendees to view your poster. This will give more people the opportunity to view your science.  

If you do not receive an e-mail with ePoster information and instructions, please contact [email protected].
