Guidelines and templates
#nanofabPOM Online Poster Session will have two parts: an asynchronous Twitter/WeChat session and a synchronous session.

The Twitter session will occur first, beginning on Sunday, May 16, 2021, and will continue throughout the next day as presenters tweet their posters. Participants are encouraged to post at the time that is most convenient for them, depending on their timezone. All official virtual posters will be retweeted from @nanofabPOM.

The session will occur on Monday, May 17, 2021. All selected posters will be invited to directly interact with attendees via video chat on the platform.
WeChat session will take place in a special group. You can join it by scanning the QR code on the right.

If you submit your poster only to WeChat or to no social platform, please send it poster to until May 15, so we can share it on Twitter on your behalf.

The email should contain:
- Your name and affiliation
- Title of the poster in English
- Are you posting it on WeChat?
- The poster itself, prepared according to the guidelines below and containing your email so people who have questions can contact you.

All posters from Twitter will be reposted in the WeChat group as they appear.

What is an online poster session?

The online poster session will take place on Twitter. A "poster" is a single tweet with four images and with a brief summary, as shown here.

To maximize interaction during the Poster Session, we recommend setting up a personal or laboratory Twitter account, if you do not have one already. This will ensure that you will be able to interact with other posters in the session as well.

If you do not have access to Twitter, please send your poster to with "Poster" as the email subject. We will send your poster out as a tweet from the official @nanofabPOM Twitter account. Please include your contact information (email address, etc.) on the poster slides, to facilitate further interaction with anyone interested in your work.

Preparing your images and tweet for posting

To ensure that your images are the correct aspect ratio, we have prepared a PowerPoint template. This series of four slides already has the correct aspect ratios and font sizes to accommodate twitter. The background is optional and just provides visual guidance. A few aspects useful to consider when designing the images and when posting:

  • A single tweet can contain 4 images max
  • Aspect ratio and legibility of images on Twitter
  • Hashtags for increasing visibility and associating poster with conference
A typical text for your tweet should contain the right hashtags (with #nanofabPOM) and tag (@ your co-authors or affiliation and @nanofabPOM)

Example: We demonstrated this advanced integration of photonics and biosensing through technique A, beneficial for applications B and C. @Authors @Lab @nanofabPOM #nanofabPOM <poster in 4 images>

The #nanofabPOM must always be included. Links to more details on preparing your poster for Twitter along with an example and the template:
