Prof.Dr.Mervat Rashed Best Poster Award.
Prof.Dr.Monty Duggal Best Poster Award.
The ESPSN’23/ArAPD’3 Congress considers posters for presentation in a Digital Format. During the conference posters will be displayed on LCD screens for viewing by congress attendees. The digital poster (E- Poster) replaces the paper-based poster style presented in previous years.
E-Posters should adhere to the following formatting specifications:
- All e-Posters should be prepared in English.
- e-Posters should be saved in File Format: PPT, PDF, PNG or JPEG .
- File sizes should be no larger than 10 MB
- Layout: Portrait (Vertical Orientation) 16/9 ratio. For best viewing, set your page size to 80.01 cm width x 142.02 cm Hight.
- Use the templet below in powerpoint and then export the file as ppt, pdf, png or jpeg
- Use a high-contrast lettering and readable fonts (minimum font size of 24).
- Remember contrast. Dark fonts on light backgrounds, light fonts on dark backgrounds. All other combinations are especially difficult to read on-screen.
- Save your poster presentation on a USB memory stick and bring these with you.
- Avoid hyperlinks. Instead, incorporate a QR code into your presentation that will direct attendees to a website that contains more information about your poster and research.
- For any section, the font size is relative. If inserted text does not fill the current section, then font size must be increased. Also, the layout, number of sections and titles could be modified as you desire.
- Media: Pictures, graphs and tables can be included in the e-Poster.
- Multimedia: videos and music cannot be included in the e-Poster.
- Size of Poster:
- Pixels: the minimum recommended size (format WxH) is 1125 x 2000px and the maximum is 2250 x 4000px.
- DPI 300 pixels/inch
Templet to complete your poster:
- Please click for the e-Poster Template., download the powerpoint and use it to export your e-poster
Clarity: People attending a poster session are free to move about from poster to poster and often must view a poster from a distance, making it difficult to read excessive text and small fonts. With this in mind, we recommend you do the following:
- Use large fonts and limit text to essential information. Place your major points in the poster and have the nonessential, but interesting, sidelights for informal discussion.
- Keep content simple and communicate clearly.
- Consider whether the sequence of information is evident. Indicate the ordering of your material with numbers, letters, or arrows when necessary.
- “A picture’s worth a thousand words.” Imaginative use of captioned illustrations, photographs, graphs, or other types of visually appealing material are extremely effective at communicating during a poster presentation.
- Make your final conclusions or summary a concise statement of your most important findings.
Abstract/E-Poster Judging Criteria: Note that the judges are looking for the following:
- Is the topic relevant and of interest to viewers?
- Does the introduction clearly outline the rationale/purpose of the study, hypothesis and importance of the study to respiratory therapy?
- Is the method valid?
- Are the population/subjects, measures/instruments, protocol, data analysis methods clearly described?
- Is the research thorough and systematic?
- Does the research design test the hypothesis?
- Are data, text, figures clearly presented with appropriate labelling/legends; significance indicated?
- Do the results accurately reflect the evidence?
- Can the results be replicated reliably?
- Are the main findings highlighted; do the conclusions relate directly to findings and implications for practice?
- Does the author draw an accurate conclusion?
- Does the scientific content show knowledge translation, is it evidence-based, does it have clarity?
- Does the poster provide sufficient references?
- Knowledge and presentation skills.
E-Posters will remain on display on Thursday 16 February at RAA Hall form from 8:30 am , the Poster Session and discussion will be from 11:15 am to 12:00 pm on Thursday 16 February 2023. The Prize Announcement will be at the same day closure.
The committee may ask you to spend some time by your poster during the coffee and lunch breaks so that you might be able to answer questions from delegates and judges.
If you have any questions, concerns or comments, please contact [email protected]
We look forward to seeing your abstracts and posters!

• Once received, you will receive a confirmation email.
• The scientific committee will announce the acceptance decision within one month of the submission, all authors who submitted an abstract will be informed of the final decision by email.
• Abstracts should be prepared as per the following specifications:
• All abstracts must be prepared and presented in English only.
• Abstracts word count should not exceed 250 words (with title, author names and affiliation details excluded).
• The abstract title should not exceed the 130 characters’ limit (spaces included) and should reflect the work presented.
• Co-authors of an abstract must not exceed five (5) in total. All abstracts subject to editorial and scientific review.
• Presentations are limited to one presentation per person.
• Authors’ names; last name first followed by initials. Do not separate initials by periods or include authors’ degrees.
• Separate authors’ names using commas, with no period following the final name.
• A small photograph of the presenting author at the top of the poster.
• The affiliations of all authors (department, institution/hospital, city/town, and country) should be included with the submission.
• Do not include tables or charts in the body.
• The work presented should be described under four headings:
– For research article: Background, Aim, Methods, Results, Conclusions
– For case presentations: Introduction, Case reports, Comments
1- Research Articles
There should be headings in bold/capitals for: AIM, METHODS, RESULTS, and the important CONCLUSIONS.
AIM: Usually one short simple sentence stating the objective of doing the study.
METHODS: This section must be clearly written and in sufficient detail for the work to be repeated by other workers. The statistical methods used should be stated
RESULTS: These should be clearly presented and only related to the methods described where appropriate data should be given as to the reproducibility of the findings. Statistical analysis should be included in this section. Images, tables and visual data should not be submitted.
CONCLUSION: This should briefly outline the most important findings.
2- Case Reports
The format for these reports should follow a similar layout to research papers. The Title page, author’(s) address should be the same as described above. There should be an abstract briefly describing the case and treatment provided. The headings in the abstract must be: a very brief INTRODUCTION about the disease or the condition of the case report. BACKGROUND to the clinical case/technique should be briefly explained and the CASE REPORT(S) described in detail. There must be a description of the FOLLOW-UP clinical care carried out to indicate the degree of success and finally there should be a brief CONCLUSION.
