Where and when is the poster session?
The poster session will be held from 1:30- 3:00 p.m. on Thursay, April 29, 2010 in Feinstone Hall, located on the second floor of the School of Public Health Wolfe Street Building. When entering the SPH from Monument Street, walk upstairs toward The Daily Grind. Just after the public computers on the left, turn right and follow the signs toward Feinstone Hall. POSTERS MUST BE IN PLACE BY 1:15 PM.
Which research topics are appropriate for presentation at the poster session?
Since nanobiotechnology is a multidisciplinary field, research from medicine, engineering, public health and the basic sciences are all relevant topics for presentation at this symposium. Although the overarching theme of the symposium is Environmental and Health Impacts of Engineered Nanomaterials, one need not be conducting research in these specific areas to submit a poster for approval. You will be contacted by INBT regarding your poster if it is determined NOT to be appropriate for presentation.
How big should my poster be?
The finished dimensions of your poster should be NO LARGER than 4’ wide by 4’ tall. Please bring pins (straight pins and T-pins work best) with which to hang your poster. You will be assigned a location number for your poster. Please post your poster only in your assigned spot.
What should I expect during the poster session?
ALL posters must be in place by 1:15 p.m. on Thursday, April 29, 20109. Judging will begin promptly at 1:30 p.m. You will be assigned to stand by your poster to answer questions during either A session (1:30-2:15 p.m.) or B session (2:15-3:00 p.m.). You, or a representative from your research group, must stand by your poster during your assigned judging time. If someone is not representing your research when the judges come by, you will be disqualified from judging. We provide exciting prizes for our poster session participants, and we know you will not want to miss out! During the time you are not required to stand by your poster, you may move around and visit other presenters’ posters.
What if I want to display an industry poster?
Please follow the guidelines for poster submission listed above. Your posters will not be judged for prizes. However, you may hand out literature or business cards to persons visiting your poster. No tables or electricity will be provided or permitted in the poster display area. Please keep the areas around your display clear for traffic.
ALL POSTERS ARE SUBJECT TO APPROVAL BY INBT.
