Stack Title: The title of your stack.

Event or Context: If you are creating this for an event then this information will already have been filled in by the event organiser.

Authors: Your name will already appear here, but you can also add your co-authors names. There is limited space (110 characters) so you may need to use only last names (e.g. Jones and Elferink instead of Tamsin Jones and Raymond Elferink). If your list of co-authors is very long then you could choose to use the academic convention et al (e.g. Jones et. al.) and then make sure that you do include all the co-authors names within the main content of your stack.

Author Affiliations: List where the co-authors work.

Stack Summary: Give a summary of your work. This summary text will appear in the summary view or your stack in the showcase and on the printable summary poster for your stack.

Summary Image: Click on the Set Image button to add an image to illustrate your stack’s summary. This image will be used in the summary view of your stack on the showcase and on the printable summary poster. The space available for the image is a wide rectangle.

Tags: Add any tags that help people to find your work. We recommend adding a maximum of 10 tags.

Extra Information Heading: If you want to include some extra information (such as Key Messages or Conclusions) to be added to the printable summary poster then add a heading for that extra information here.

Extra Information: Type in your extra information here if you are using it. This information will only appear on the printable summary poster.
