Poster Printing Service

The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium® has selected Genigraphics as their preferred poster printing service for the upcoming 2023 Symposium. Presenters are encouraged to take advantage of this simple, convenient way to print their posters and pick them up onsite at the convention center. While the service is optional, only printed posters that are ordered through Genigraphics by the deadlines below can be delivered directly to the Symposium for onsite pickup. Individual posters cannot be shipped to the convention center.

Poster printing orders can be placed through the Genigraphics website:

Print Poster Preparation Guidelines

·     The poster boards used at the Symposium are 78 inches wide x 39 inches high (198 cm x 99 cm). Posters should be printed in landscape (horizontal) format and should not exceed these measurements. (The largest available poster size available through the poster printing service is 45 x 90 inches / 114 x 228 cm.)

·     SABCS® is committed to minimizing commercial bias in poster presentations. Poster presentations should not contain any of the following: commercial logos, company names, brand or proprietary drug names. Only cooperative group, hospital, and non-profit company logos are permitted. 

·     Presenters may download a QR code to include on their printed poster which will link directly to their companion virtual poster on the virtual site for the Symposium. Access to the specific QR code within the Poster Harvester will be sent directly to the presenting author.

·     If you choose to include a QR Code on your poster, you must also include the following disclaimer on both print and electronic versions of your poster: "Copies of this poster obtained through Quick Response (QR) Code are for personal use only and may not be reproduced without permission from SABCS® and the author of this poster." Written authorization is not required, unless your QR code links to the full text of your abstract, which would be considered a reprint.


Companion Virtual Poster

The San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium® has selected Cadmium as their virtual poster service for the 2023 Symposium. This is the same provider that you used to submit your abstract. To upload your virtual poster and record the optional audio overview, the presenting author must log into the Poster Harvester site using their email and access code. Log-in credentials will also be sent to each presenting author.

·     Virtual poster upload deadline is November 17, 2023

·     Presenting authors are able to upload a single PDF of their poster for inclusion on the virtual site. For publishing purposes, upload must be a PDF file at highest resolution possible. The aspect ratio (ratio of width to height) should ideally be set to '16:9' and is limited to one (1) slide only.  That means one single page for your PDF file.

·     Presenting authors will also have a option of providing an audio recording for their virtual poster. You will have a maximum of 3 minutes for your audio recording. Specific instructions for this process will be on the Poster Harvester for presenting authors.

·     Clearly print one contact email address on your poster to which attendees can direct questions or comments. If you do not wish to provide your own email address, please provide the email address of a co-author.

·     SABCS® is committed to minimizing commercial bias in poster presentations. Virtual poster presentations should not contain any of the following: commercial logos, company names, brand or proprietary drug names. Only cooperative group, hospital, and non-profit company logos are permitted.

·     Virtual posters will be viewable on-demand through the virtual site for the Symposium, hosted by Cadmium, for the duration of the 2023 SABCS®.
