What is a CSI Presentation

“CSI” stands for “cases, studies, and innovations” and CSI presentations have replaced traditional poster presentations. These are selected from submitted abstracts on various topics. Each CSI author has the opportunity to prepare their presentation as a pre-recorded video, poster PDF, or both. CSI Presentations will be posted to the congress app and corresponding website. Attendees may view the CSI presentations at their leisure once the platform opens on Oct. 19 and may view them until the virtual edition closes on February 21, 2024.

Presentation Types

CSI Presentations can be a pre-recorded video, a poster PDF, or both. It’s your choice how to best present your material.

CSI Presentation Upload

All CSI presenters received an email inviting them to upload their files in Cadmium. Final presentation files must be uploaded by September 1, 2023.

Pre-Recorded Video Guidelines

  • Videos should be no mor than 7 minutes long and created in landscape mode.
  • Include Objective(s), Method, Results and Conclusion when possible.
  • Include a Take Home Message in the summary at the end.
  • Have a quiet location set for the recording time to minimize background noise.
  • If possible, have your computer plugged in with a hard-wired internet connection (Cat-5).
  • Have light cast on you from the front or side. Do not be positioned in front of a window or light brighter than your front and sidelights.
  • Plug your headset into your laptop or desktop computer. If your computer does not have a microphone, please attach an external microphone via USB or 3.5mm jack.
  • Keep your microphone muted until you are ready to speak. Allow 10 seconds before speaking once unmuting yourself.
  • Allow 3 seconds prior to speaking when switching slides.
  • Ensure that the platform you are using can export the video in 1080p or higher to allow for post-recording editing if needed.
  • Depending on the program you are using, your camera may block a portion of the slide. Please review slide content prior to recording to ensure all content is in view.

Poster Presentations

Those who will include a poster as part of their CSI presentation are requested to use the provided poster template.

A typical poster should contain a combination of pictures, tables, graphs, and other elements used in presentations. We have provided one template which you can use as a guideline.

While it is not mandatory you use the provided template, it is important that you summarize your research or information in a concise and attractive way. Ideally, viewers must understand the content of your poster in a matter of minutes.

Format and File Type: All Posters should be in LANDSCAPE format and saved as a PDF file. There are no required dimensions or size limit due to the virtual nature of the poster. Users will be able to download the poster and zoom in/out for optimal viewing.

If you want to get the best results, make sure that your poster is well-designed, logical, and consistent. When designing your poster, remember, some features in the provided template may be changed, while others are fixed.

When applicable, posters should include the number of hairs transplanted, transection rates, and the numbers of grafts where relevant.
