iPoster Information

iPoster Production Guidelines

All posters will be virtual and constructed online using an industry-leading web-based provider.

Summary of how it will work:

You will log-in to set up your personal workspace. You select a working template for your interactive iPoster from a variety of choices. WYSIWYG editing tools allow you to pick colors, backgrounds, typefaces, and more to personalize your work. You can create your presentation using texts, high-resolution images, high-definition videos, sound files, slide shows, links to external websites and more. There is no space limit – content boxes open up at the click of a button, allowing you to add as much content as you need to present your research in the detail that it deserves. Share and collaborate with co-authors.


It is VERY important that you meet the following deadlines. For consistency, the deadline will be at 11:59 PM CT (Chicago, USA) on the date listed below.

You will receive an email with detailed instructions and your login information between October 30 and November 2.

  • iposter website opens for accepted abstracts to begin drafting: Friday, October 30

Official Language

The official language of the meeting is English. Simultaneous interpretation will not be offered. If you do not have an adequate command of the English language, then we highly recommend that you present with a voice over.


Because this is a free virtual event, we are anticipating a large group of physicians and scientists with varying degrees of knowledge and experience in vitiligo. Attendees will be culturally diverse, with several countries represented.

Avoidance of Commercialism

All poster presentations must avoid commercialism.  NO TRADE NAMES SHOULD BE USED FOR DRUGS, SURGICAL TECHNIQUES, DEVICES AND/OR INSTRUMENTATION INCLUDING LASERS.  Advertising matter of any description may not be distributed, nor any material displayed which in any way directly promotes the commercial interest of any particular company, enterprise, or the exhibitor(s). Any medications or other substances referred to in the presentation material must be identified by their scientific names only.

Selling/Order Taking

No selling or order-taking is permitted, even with respect to products or services provided by non-profit enterprises. Any medications or other substances referred to in exhibit materials must be identified by their scientific names.

Poster Session Dates and Times

This information will be posted closer to the symposium.


Disclosure of Conflict Of Interest

All presenters are required to self-disclose any pertinent financial relationships.

Regardless of whether you have anything to disclose, ALL PRESENTERS are required to have a disclosure statement on their poster.

If there is nothing to disclose, it should state (example):

Speaker has no relevant financial relationships or conflicts of interest to declare.

If there is a disclosure, it should state (example):

Company XYZ
– Advisory Board

Company ABC
– Royalty

Disclosure of Off-Label Usage

If any part of your presentation includes the discussion of a medical device or pharmaceutical agent that is not approved by the FDA and/or a medical or surgical procedure that involves an unapproved or “off-label” use of an approved medical device or pharmaceutical agent, this must be disclosed on your poster.
