With the shift to a virtual format for Discover UofSC 2021, presenters and outreach exhibitors will have the opportunity to develop new skills as they showcase their work by developing a custom iPoster to present at the event on Friday, April 23.

Reviewers will also have a new, streamlined experience at Discover UofSC 2021, reviewing iPosters virtually by using a rubric designed for their presenter group(s) (undergraduate students, graduate students, medical scholars and/or postdocs) and entering scores seamlessly into the iPosterSessions system. Three-minute thesis (3MT) reviewers will also view presentations virtually using videoconferencing technology and score presentations through a virtual process tailored to the 3MT format.


iPosterSessions webinars

To help Discover UofSC presenters and outreach exhibitors hit the ground running once they have been accepted and received their login information, organizers will offer two virtual iPosterSessions webinars:

  • Wednesday, March 10, noon to 1:00 p.m.: This webinar will provide an overview of the iPosterSessions virtual platform and customizable options, which will help presenters and outreach exhibitors get started with creating an iPoster.
  • Wednesday, March 31, noon to 1:00 p.m.: This webinar will provide a brief overview of iPosters, followed by a live Q&A session. Please bring your questions.

Both sessions will be recorded and made available on the Discover UofSC website so participants may refer to them as often as needed, any time. All prospective presenters and outreach exhibitors are encouraged to register below, and attend a webinar.
