Poster Presentation Information

The Poster Presentation Session is scheduled for Tuesday, March 13, from 11:15 am-12:30 pm in Wyandotte Ballroom 2. Posters should be 30″ x 40″ or smaller to fit on the foam boards that will be provided.  We will provide foam boards, binder clips, and push pins to mount the posters.

Then the foam boards will be displayed on easels.

Presenter Information

Rooms will have a projector and Internet access. Presenters should bring laptops and connecting dongles for audio visual.

Each session is an hour and fifteen minutes. In general, with a panel of four, each presenter has fifteen minutes, leaving fifteen minutes for questions. The issue of when to take questions is up to the chair and the panel, but taking questions at the end, by which time everyone has had time to present, is a good idea.

Research Methods Workshops

Workshops will take place Tuesday, March 14 from 1:30 pm-5:30 pm in Argentine and Armourdale in the Reardon Convention Center.

Each room will have a projector and screen, but facilitators and participants should bring laptops.

There will be a short break at 3:15.

Women in TC Luncheon

The luncheon is scheduled for Wyandotte Ballroom 1 on Wednesday, March 14, 12:15 pm-1:45 pm. Registration is required for this event. Organizers will check people in at the door using the Eventbrite registration information.
