ePoster Submission Program - coming soon!

The program captures accepted poster submissions that will be presented at #HRS2020 and posts them online as part of Heart Rhythm On Demand 2020.

Poster Printing Services

The #HRS2020 - 41st Annual Scientific Sessions has selected Call4Posters® as their preferred poster printing partner. Unlike general printing services, Call4Posters® was designed specifically to meet the needs of researchers. The deadline to submit your poster is Friday, May 1, 9:00 a.m. US Central Time.


Poster Specifications

The following guidelines can be used to assist you in preparing your poster presentation and enhance the poster presentation experience for attendees. Please review the following information and bring all required materials to the poster check in desk during the required poster presentation set up times.


Embargo Policy

Accepted abstracts are embargoed until 5:00 p.m. PT on Tuesday, May 5, 2020. This means that information regarding any abstract submission may not be released before this time. Failure to honor embargo policies will result in the abstract being withdrawn and barred from presentation.



All poster presentations are required to include the following information:

  • Title
  • Author Block
  • Disclosure Block (All poster presentations are required to display the financial disclosures of the presenting author listed on the abstract next to the authors names on the poster. If the financial disclosure is not printed on the poster in the required location, one will be provided for you.)
  • Images/Graphs/Tables (Presenters are not allowed to use the Heart Rhythm Society logo in their posters or presentations)


The following color combinations provide the greatest amount of contrast:

  • Black text on white background
  • Dark blue on white
  • White on black
  • White on blue


  • Text Format: The poster presentation should be self-contained and not require any additional oral explanation to be understood by the attendees. Text should be brief and well organized, presenting only enough data to support your conclusions and logically display data. The text should make clear the significance of your research. A style using bullets tends to be the most effective format.
  • Size: The maximum size of each poster is 4 feet (48 inches) high by 8 feet (96 inches) wide. Do not exceed the height/width of the poster board and do not display the abstract on single 8½" X 11" sheets. (If presenters do not adhere to this requirement, they will not be allowed to present their poster.)
  • Arrangement of Text: A clear, simple, uncluttered arrangement is the most attractive and easiest to read.
  • Font Size: All lettering should be legible from a distance of approximately 6 feet. Type size should be at least 30 point or larger.
  • Images and Photos: Graphs and photos also need to be large enough to be seen clearly at 6 feet. Illustrations should be simple and eye-catching, with unnecessary detail left out.  Presenters are not allowed to use any Heart Rhythm Society logos or graphics on their posters/presentations.
  • Text/Design Suggestions: If possible, convert tables to graphic displays. Pie graphs can be used to show parts of a whole, line graphs can be used to show trends or changing relationships, and bar graphs can be used to show volumes. Avoid lengthy paragraphs and excessively complex tables.
  • Poster Session Information
    • Each poster session has a specific start and end time. Presenters are required to check in at the poster "Check-In" desk before they set-up their presentation.
    • Presenters are responsible for setting up and removing the poster and materials. Posters must be removed immediately after the session ending time. Presenters will not be allowed to remove posters before the session ends. Please see the table below for setup times.
    • Presenters are required to be available for questions and answers at the assigned time (see schedule below). However, we recommend that you be present for the entire duration of the session.
