Poster Upload

You have the opportunity to upload your poster onto the BRAIN 2017 website (as pdf) and obtain a QR code which you can print out and attach to your poster board. Poster viewers can then scan the QR code and download your poster. If you decide on doing so, please read the following instructions carefully to avoid common issues like file duplicates on our server.

Step 1: Compress your poster file

Make sure your poster file does not exceed the size limit of 8 MB. With most PDF distillers like MS Word or Adobe Acrobat, there is an option to compress images and text to reduce file size. Images can be downsampled to 300 dpi and saved at 80% image quality without a noticeable loss.

Step 2: Rename your poster file

Please rename your poster file to feature your last name and a heavily shortened title, replacing all spaces with a dash (e. g. Doe-Neuroprotection.pdf). The shorter the file name, the better will be the performance of the QR code and the retrievability of your file on our server.

Step 3: Upload your file

Please select your file in the uploader and press the Upload File button

Step 4: Retrieve QR Code

When your poster file is successfully uploaded, you will be automatically redirected to the QR generator, which will produce a QR code that links to your file on our server.


If the automatic upload should not work, please forward the poster file to: help [at] brain2017 [dot] net.
