Poster Presentations

Poster presentations are opportunities for a larger number of researchers to present their research in the form a visual poster presentation. The posters are large (often 3' x 4') and provide the researcher with enough space to fully summarize their research in an attractive and professional way. 
The presenter typically prepares a short oral summary that can be given to those who are interested.  Attendees are free to move about the room and examine posters and talk individually to the presenters.  This format does allow the opportunity for a research target those that are genuinely interested and engage them in discussion that often allows for more detail.  Another advantage of this type of format is that researcher can receive valuable feedback from the attendees.
