KAUST University Library has introduced its new ePoster service, rolled out in collaboration with the Campus IT department. This new service enables KAUST conference organizers to use state-of-the-art digital technology for poster sessions - including poster submission, digital display, preservation, and competitions. University Library is eliminating printed posters and displays, in support of the digital campus concept.
The service includes:
access to eposter online submission and display platform (KAUST ePosterlive)
eposter display through BenQ 65 inch 4K touch screens, offering full-zoom, and many multimedia functionalities
eposter session website (possibility of time and location limitations)
preservation of eposters to KAUST research repository
The online platform chosen (ePostersonline) manages, promotes, and supports poster competitions until the day of the event and beyond, as posters remain accessible on a dedicated event website before being preserved in the KAUST research repository. We ensure that posters are preserved and support open access to scientific knowledge.
Past ePoster events that have been run by the KAUST Library can be viewed from a dedicated page here.
Due to the COVID pandemic, we are unable to provide the digital display screens features to avoid large group events. However, technology is available to host the poster sessions completely virtual, and our service provider ePosterLive has a virtual ePosters session capacity.
For information, questions or to provide feedback, please contact;

NB: Public online display of eposters are subjected to author permission. ePoster touch screens are not available for any other use than eposter sessions.
"To be candid, we are thrilled with the opportunity to use the E-poster system. The technology is one thing. The web archive is perhaps even more significant for the mainly young or remote authors at our meeting. Posters are not "second place" entries here. One could even argue that they have a better archival life and better production value than the talks."
