Poster Presentations

We welcome poster presentations for UIA49.  Please submit your poster proposal on our

abstract submission website

We are looking for posters on medical applications for ultrasound and industrial ultrasound applications.  We will have a full poster session on Thursday, 23 April 2020.  We also welcome research results and updates.

Abstracts should be up to 200 words discussing aims and outcomes - graphs and supplemental materials are not required at this time.  Deadline for posters is 16 March 2020. 

Creating Your Posters

UIA will be using an ePoster platform - there will be no need to create an A1 printed poster.  Your poster will be presented via a mini-poster that you will create online and you will have the ability to upload a wide range of supporting documentation.

If you plan to publish your research, please refer to ePosters and Publication information below.

You will have the ability to incorporate any of the following items in your ePoster:

Elements of an ePoster

Your ePoster will have both a physical and online presence at the UIA Symposium - a mini-poster that will be displayed and an interactive ePoster that will be available online for up to one year. As a poster presenter, you make both of these within the Learning Toolbox.


our ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and even add to it after the event.  However, you control this option if you plan to publish an article in the future. You can send out messages to your ePoster viewers within the ePoster and your viewers can post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event.

Once your poster is accepted, you will be sent an invitation to log-in and start your ePoster. This will include your personalized link to the Learning Toolbox so you can start creating your ePoster.

More information

Here are samples of ePosters for you to review, along with commentary about what makes them so effective.

Below are three links with more information.


USA is providing a personal help desk for ePoster development.  Just call UIAduring business hours Monday - Friday from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm EST (USA).

E-posters and publication

There have been some concerns raised that having the e-posters available online after the conference could impact future publication. We have confirmed that most journal editors would not consider the publication of conference posters to be “prior publication” and thus having an e-poster should not prevent submission of a full-length research article in a journal. As with all things, if you are planning to submit your work to a journal it is important to confirm this with the specific journal to which you are planning to submit.  Additionally, make sure that you are not duplicating text between the poster and the journal article so that it does not get tagged by plagiarism software and acknowledge that you presented at the conference and cite the abstract/poster when you submit. You will also have the option to NOT have your poster available online after the conference. 


Monday Reception UIA48

Participants enjoy spirited conversations about ultrasonics during the UIA48 Monday reception.
