Information for Flash Talk and Poster Presenters:  

  • Format of Sessions: During your assigned time slot, you will be able to share your screen to present your poster (2 minutes maximum) or your flash talk (5 minutes maximum). At the time of the presentation, the event moderator will unmute your microphone and you will have the ability to share your screen. Please stick to the time limit so all presenters will have a chance to share their work! The Zoom-based event interface displays a list of conference sessions, both scheduled and in progress. Please join your session five minutes before it is scheduled to begin if you are presenting. Out of respect for the other conference speakers and attendees, we ask that you remain muted unless you are actively presenting or asking questions/engaging in discussion. 

Poster Presenters: 

  • Open Science Framework: You should upload your poster (and any supporting materials you wish, e.g., data or code) to the Open Science Framework (OSF), to provide a record of conference presentations and enhance your work’s visibility, transparency, and reproducibility. Please upload your poster by June 10, 2024 using the 2024 SDMH Meeting page: Uploading is easy. Go to the link, click “Add your poster or talk,” and follow the instructions. After emailing your poster to OSF, an OSF account will be created for you, and you will then be able to log in and upload any additional materials you wish to make public. If you already have an OSF account, a new OSF project for your conference presentation will be created for you within your existing OSF account. Please feel free to contact Jeremy Eberle ( with any questions about uploading materials to OSF. 
  • Student Poster Awards: We are excited to be offering poster awards. To be eligible for a poster award, the first author of the poster must be a postbaccalaureate (such as a research assistant), an undergraduate, or graduate student. If you would like your poster to be considered for an award, please upload your poster by June 3, 2024.  
  • Poster format and guidelines: We do not have specific font or size guidelines for posters. However, we are asking that posters follow the Better Poster format. If you are unfamiliar with this format, you can get more information here. There are also numerous templates online, but here is one example. You do not have to adhere rigidly to this format but we encourage authors to attend to the ways this format helps other conference participants identify the critical takeaways more easily.
