2022 INS Annual Meeting
Montreal, Canada + Virtual
November 2-4, 2022


Investigators with an accepted abstract are invited to present their work virtually or in-person in Montreal. Presentations may be in the form of posters, slides, or a video recording — depending on how you will be participating. Investigators may prepare and submit more than one presentation type. Please review the requirements below regarding the different presentation formats.

All completed presentations should be submitted by Tuesday, October 25. If you are no longer able to submit a presentation or present your work during the meeting, contact us immediately.

In-Person Presentations

Posters can be no wider than 30 inches (75 cm) and should be no taller than 36 inches (90 cm). The boards are 5 feet wide by 3 feet tall. Two posters will be displayed on each side of the board.

We are currently determining when posters will be presented to judges. This will likely take place throughout the meeting and including during some of the 30-minute breaks.

Virtual Presentation Formats

Posters / Slides

For those wishing to present their work visually, we recommend creating a traditional large-format poster or a set of images, slides, or graphics that tell the story of your research. Posters and slides may include text, graphs, charts, tables, and photographs. We discourage including large blocks of text. Posters should show your work in a visual way that complements the written abstract.

Posters and slides should be arranged in a 16:9 width-to-height ratio, unless you have good reason for another layout. Presentations should be submitted as file types: JPG, PNG. If you are making slides in PowerPoint, Keynote, or another presentation software, export the slides set as a PDF.

Video Recordings

All investigators may also record a brief video presentation explaining their research. Videos may be 3-5 minutes in length. We encourage you to keep the number of slides to a minimum.

Two possible options for recording your talk include using PowerPoint or Zoom. With PowerPoint: use the 'Record Slide Show' feature, record your voice as you page through slides, and export the complete presentation as a video. To record a talk with Zoom: open a new meeting session, enable the 'share screen' feature, switch to presenter view (to also capture your webcam view), give your talk as you page through slides, and save the recording on your computer. Save videos as MP4 files.

Investigators invited to give a featured talk (either 5 or 12 minutes in duration) can present live during their scheduled session or may record in advance and submit to organizers to play during the live session. The same recording can also be published online so viewable throughout the meeting.

While posters, slides, and videos will be the most common presentation types, we welcome other creative ideas. If you would like to experiment with other formats, please contact us to get approval.


Submit the final version of your presentation by uploading a file or entering a file location through our Presentation Upload form. If an alternate method is required, contact us to discuss.
