Virtual Poster Presentations

In this virtual world, SpatialChat offers the closest thing to a live poster session. The platform simulates a large conference center, with a main lobby, poster halls, reception areas, and more!

The platform offers a virtual meeting space where participants create an avatar and move through the space into different meeting rooms to view posters and interact with presenters. Each room will have 4 posters.

SpatialChat tries to recreate the informal nature of an in-person poster session by allowing participants to move their avatar through the event space and approach various presenters. An avatar needs to be in close proximity to a poster presenter in order to hear what they are saying. Just like an in-person poster session, SpatialChat allows for anyone to casually come up and join a conversation.

To foster networking and relationship building, there will be designated lounges and “coffee shops” where attendees can catch up with one another between visiting posters. Please be mindful of the fact that conversations are not private; all attendees are free to move about the space and join any conversation.

Virtual Session Support: Please note there is a Technical Support room staffed by a SpatialChat engineer to help solve any technical difficulties and a Help desk staffed by Team SR to walk you through the platform or answer any questions you have.

Requirements: SpatialChat requires the use of Google Chrome for the best experience; it does not work well on phones.

Training: Please note a training session has been scheduled to review this portal for you on March 3, from 10:00 am to 11:00 am EST. Please log into this URL for the training session.

Poster Size and Format:  Poster presenters will send their 8.5″ x 11″ jpeg or Pdf of their poster to team SR no later than Sunday, March 7, 2021 to place in their designated slot before the event. Please send to via email to taylor.coutroulis@STRATEGICRESULTS.COM (Posters should be renamed with your poster number followed by your last name- first name (For example, 1Smith Sally). Planning staff will assist with setting up your poster so that it is ready for you on the day of the event.

Networking: During the poster session, you will have an opportunity to talk directly to poster presenters to ask them questions in real time and to catch up with other colleagues in this virtual space. The closer your avatar is to another individual’s, the louder their audio will become. Think of it as walking around a physical room having conversations with presenters and participants as you would in a live session.

Poster Numbers:  The following poster list is a listing of the assigned poster number based on presenting authors and by poster number.

Questions: If you have any questions or concerns regarding the conference or your poster presentation, please don’t hesitate to contact Taylor Coutroulis by email at taylor.coutroulis@STRATEGICRESULTS.COM or by telephone at 240-449-8415.
