Poster presentations and guidelines
Poster presentations will be over 3 days (July 21-23),
just over 20 posters on each day, and will last for about
2 hours, allowing time for attendees to see your poster
and discuss your research at a leisurely pace. All posters
will be up for the whole conference (at least 3 full
days), so that the discussions can continue beyond the
poster session. Posters can be at most 48 inches x 48
The One-minute lightning talk. All poster
presenters will also give at least a one-minute talk,
timed by an automatic slide advancer. Poster presenters
have the option of sending us one or two slides in
power-point or PDF, or let us simply use their abstract as
the slide; the slides will be shown for exactly 60 seconds
total, 30 seconds each by default if two slides. These
poster slides will also be on a loop on a big screen
through the conference in the poster presentation room.
Please send us an email with subject-line "poster slides"
to email@example.com We hope to provide poster
presenters with a table and electrical outlet; presenters
are encouraged to bring a laptop with video or interactive
elements, as well as hardware suitable for table-top
