GENERAL INFORMATION FOR TECHNICAL FORUM POSTER PRESENTERS
The Technical Forum gives poster presenters an opportunity to answer questions and talk about their work with one person or a few people at a time. Poster presenters do not give formal talks during the Technical Forum.
Students presenting posters during the Technical Forum will receive complimentary registration. If you have any questions, please contact Karl Englund.
Your abstract (250 words or less) should clearly define the objective of your presentation, briefly describe the topics to be covered, and list major conclusions or recommendations. You will receive a confirmation by email if your poster is accepted. An abstract of each poster presentation will be included in the Abstracts handout (available onsite) and will also be included in the 2015 Proceedings. You must be in attendance with your poster at the Poster Session to have your abstract included in the Proceedings.
