Lightning Poster Session

What is it?
The ‘lightning poster rounds’ are an opportunity for all poster presenters to deliver a ‘teaser’ introduction to quickly engage and energize workshop attendees on the topic of your research. It’s intended to provide a fun and exciting summary of each presenter’s topic that encourages further dialogue later in the program.

How will it be conducted?
Each poster presenter will submit a single slide and have up to one minute to stand up and motivate the meeting attendees on the topic of his or her poster, which will be presented in the poster hall later in the evening. The slide can include any component of the research, but avoid simply including a photo of your entire poster, or simply a title slide. This is a great way to engage the group in your fantastic research. You can begin with “Come to MY poster because…..”, or any way you think will be fresh and fun.

Deadline to supply your slide is October 12.  Please email to:
