The 15th Munin Conference is moving online this year but we still want to welcome poster submissions to the conference. So this time the poster session will be online using Twitter.

How does an online poster session work?

The poster session will follow a similar structure as the virtual poster session held during the Photonics Online Meetup. Each poster consists of a brief summary of the topic in one tweet along with 1-4 attached images with roughly the following content:

  • Title, authors, abstract
  • Introduction
  • Methods
  • Results

There is flexibility here for other formats, for example, an infographic split into maximum four parts is also welcome. You can also use fewer than four images, but we do not recommend more than four because then you will not see all the images at once in the tweet preview.

Once your poster submission is approved, we will send you a PowerPoint template that you can use to make your poster images for Twitter. The template is sized for Twitter and helps identify your poster as an official online poster for the Munin Conference. You are free to use your own template.

Save all images as PNG files. Use the hashtag #Munin2020 and tag @MuninConf in your poster tweet. Post a brief summary tweet along with your poster images on Twitter Monday November 16.

All official Munin Conference posters will also be re-tweeted by the @MuninConf Twitter account. You might consider using some of the following hashtags in addition:

  • #OpenAccess
  • #OpenScience
  • #ScholComm
  • #AcademicTwitter
  • #SciComm

We encourage you to start a Twitter thread and answer questions about your poster!

What if I don’t/can’t have a Twitter account?

You can register for a Twitter account free

We prefer it if all authors share their posters from their own personal Twitter accounts. If you aren’t able to register a Twitter account please let us know when you submit your abstract and we will post it from the @MuninConf account.
