First Conference on Zero and Ultra-Low Fields NMR

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation program under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 766402.

Poster session submissions are still accepted, but will not participate in the competition

Poster session concept

A virtual poster session will take place on Twitter, starting on Monday the week before the conference - 24th of August. We call for posters on the following topics:

The research presented on the poster should have clear connections to ZULF or low-field NMR. As the field is emerging, we encourage attendees to present also ideas that are not yet realized. In particular, we hope that researchers who are new to the field might present ideas connecting their area of research with ZULF, as a basis for discussion with experts in the field, fostering creativity and collaborations.

Virtual poster sessions are a new concept. Please carefully follow our poster guidelines below, for the benefit of both you and your audience. Be sure do download the template of a virtual poster.

Poster prize

The best posters will be awarded prizes, sponsored by Wiley and ISMAR. To be eligible for a poster prize, the attendee has to fulfil the following criteria:

The posters will be judged by a panel of experts from the ZULF NMR Innovative Training Network (ZULF ITN) according to the quality of the presentation and the novelty of the research.

This document has been adapted from guidelines kindly provided by the organizers of the Photonics Online Meeting (POM20), who have organised two successful virtual poster sessions. Various examples of virtual posers, presented at the recent second edition of POM, can be found when searching for the hashtag #POM20ju.

Virtual poster format

Unlike a conventional paper poster, the virtual poster will consist of four images that will be tweeted all at once, as shown below. As such, there are several aspects that have to be considered when posting:

This document has been written to help with these three aspects.

Preparing your images for posting

To ensure that your images have the correct aspect ratio, we have prepared a PowerPoint presentation template. This series of four slides has the optimal aspect ratios and font sizes for Twitter. These slides were used to create the tweet shown above.

To clearly explain your work to a broad technical audience, we recommend the following content for the four images (as indicated in the PowerPoint template):

The slides from the example tweet above are shown below:

This will create separate PNG images for every slide in a new folder named after your PowerPoint file.

Posting the poster on Twitter

If you do not have a Twitter account, please jump to the end of this document. These instructions assume that you are posting from a computer, not a mobile device.

Additional information and suggestions


To increase visibility, here are a few suggestions on hashtags that might be relevant:

For example, instead of tweeting: “Natural-abundance 13C molecule detected by ZULF NMR combined with PHIP hyperpolarization”, consider tweeting “Natural-abundance 13C molecule detected by #ZULFNMR combined with #PHIP hyperpolarization”.

Creating a Twitter account

If you do not have a Twitter account, please follow the instructions given here to create one. The minimum recommended details include are:

If, for any reason, you prefer not to set up a twitter account, please e-mail your poster content to and we post it on the ZULF NMR twitter account. However, we encourage people to create a Twitter account if they can so that they can interact more directly with other scientists.
