How Posters Work in Virtual Chair

File Format

  • All posters must be uploaded as PDF files

  • Posters may not exceed 1 page/side. Recommended file size: under 2MB.

  • Vertically oriented posters require some scrolling, horizontally oriented posters do not (16:9 or 4:3 aspect ratio).

  • It is possible to zoom in and out to read smaller text.

  • Do not include any URLs or hyperlinks

Poster Objects

Posters are interactive objects on the Virtual Chair platform. When coming close to a poster it will glow, indicating that you can interact with its content. Pressing your X key opens up the poster in a pdf viewer where you can see it in full size and can also zoom in and out.

The rug around the poster also offers a private conversation space. You can see and talk to anyone who is also on the rug. This allows authors for example to answer questions about their poster to people coming by to read it

Poster Session:

During a poster session we will display several posters in one room.

Use the zoom feature in your settings (located on the left menu bar) or disabled 'smart zoom' and use ctrl/cmmd and ‘+/-’ to zoom in and out of a venue and get a better overview over a poster room.


Directories can be found at several spots in the room and show a list of all posters and their numbers so people know where to find them.
