Guidelines for E-Poster Chairpersons

Guidelines for E-Poster Chairpersons

As an E-Poster session chairperson, you are responsible for the time management of the E-Poster presentations within your session.

  • Familiarize yourself with your session's presentations ahead of time. You may see the conference agenda here.
  • Please make sure to take a look at your E-Poster session's content onsite for any last minute changes to your session.
  • Arrive at the first poster at least 5-10 minutes before the start time and assemble the selected E-Poster presenters.
  • Introduce yourself to the audience before the start time, giving the name of the E-Poster Session. 
  • Ask people to set all cell phones on silent.
  • Introduce the speaker and presentation title as indicated in the Program Book.
  • Each E-Poster presenter should summarize their findings in 10 min including 8 minutes for their talk + 2 minutes for questions and comments.
  • The poster presenters really value the feedback they obtain from these sessions.


Be prepared for the unexpected:

  • If the session ends early, do one or more of the following:

o  Have questions prepared for the speakers.

o   Solicit questions from the audience.

o   If you finish much before the allotted time, you may let the session out early. 

  • If a speaker failed to attend the session move to the next presentation. 

The ICLE Board thanks you for your important contribution to the conference success.
