A poster is a visual medium used to communicate a key idea related to research: It presents that idea in verbal and graphic ways. Unlike an oral presentation, a poster does (most) of the talking—it should stand on its own, be self-explanatory (even as it enables conversations with viewers).

In 2017 poster authors have two format options available to them.  Hard Copy static printed poster displayed on boards.  Or PowerPoint developed ePoster slide displayed on large flat screens for 1 minute duration each rotation.  All will be displayed for the duration of the conference from midday Wednesday to Friday afternoon.
