Poster Submission Info

Moderated Posters Session

Presented in a poster format in the poster area, these posters will be show-cased during inter-session breaks. Two moderators will conduct the session and allow 5 minutes for each presenter to give an overview of the research. Posters are then available for further consultation by the audience during the duration of two day poster session.

Poster Session
