Call for Posters

Guidelines for Poster Submission 

Poster Submission Deadline: 15 July 2022 

We are accepting electronic posters for the conference. Posters should focus on one of the daily themes: 

• Day 1: Shifting Student Engagement 

• Day 2: Emerging New Data and IR Themes 

Poster Session with Lightning Talks: 

There will be a Poster Session with Lightning Talks at the end of Day 1, Thursday 8 September. A selection of posters will be chosen for the session and authors will be required to present a short presentation of their poster and answer questions from delegates. Invites to present at the Lightning Talk will be made by Friday 22 July 2022. 

So that delegates can engage with the posters during and after the conference, all posters should be submitted with a narration (details below). Posters will be hosted on the HEIR website after the conference. 

Poster Submission Details:

Landscape orientation 

A0 maximum; smaller sizes are acceptable. (Note: although the poster is electronic, the A0 size limit is important in determining the maximum amount of material to add to your poster.) 

Describe your poster in no more than 3 minutes. 

We recommend that you use PowerPoint, or equivalent, to design your poster and create the voice-over narrative. It is acceptable to include additional slides to your voice-over narration in order to focus on specific parts of the poster (i.e., you could enlarge the relevant panel so that it fills one slide). 

File types: Please submit either: 

1. The original PowerPoint (or equivalent) file, with embedded narration, or 

2. A PDF of the poster and a video file of the narrated poster.
