Poster session guidelines

On Saturday, June 20th, we will hold a poster session highlighting the outreach, communication, and social media activities of our attendees. We hope that all attendees will apply to give a poster at the workshop.

For a fuller sense of the topics and content of ComSciCon posters, please see last year's abstracts on the ComSciCon14 program. We ask attendees to dream big! Do you have a project which you'd like to see spread nationwide? Do you want to start something, but need collaborators? Projects might include school outreach programs, a blog, developing teaching tools, public science nights, etc.

Poster Application Process

Please fill out the attendee preparatory survey form that was distributed by email to submit an abstract. The deadline for abstract submissions is Friday, May 1st.

The poster session will utilize ePosterboards, enabling participants to embed videos/other media into your poster. For attendees whose poster abstracts are accepted, we will provide an ePosterboards poster template and you will be required to submit the final version of your poster by 11pm on June 7th (1.5 weeks before the conference) so that we can ensure technical compatibility. Please only submit an abstract if you can commit to finishing your poster by that date.

Depending on how many attendees submit an abstract, space may be somewhat limited, so we will let you know the status of your submission by Friday, May 15th.

Poster Formatting Guidelines

Please follow ePosterboards' formatting guidelines when preparing your poster.  A how-to guide and poster template is provided to assist you in making your poster using Powerpoint.

If you create your presentation on a Windows PC, please save any formulas or equations as an image, for consistent display on the ePosterboards equipment.

Please direct any specific formatting questions to ePosterboards' tech support page.

Presenters, please upload final drafts of your presentations via the ePosterboards website. Please fill out the form, selecting the ComSciCon Workshop from the dropdown menu, attach your poster content (including multimedia files), and submit the form. Upon submission, you will receive an email confirmation.
