Poster session

Poster sessions will be held during lunch and during the afternoon break. Anyone can present a poster, but we especially encourage graduate students and postdocs to use this opportunity to advertise their work. Please provide a poster title when you register. Posters should be set up at 9:30 am, and we will also have a Poster Blitz at 11:30 am. In the Poster Blitz, each poster presenter will have 1 minute to present 1 slide to describe his/her poster. (We will contact you to get your slide beforehand.)
