Research Corner - Poster Discussion Breakout Session

Again this year, poster presenters will have an option to participate in the "Research Corner" breakout. This is a Poster Discussion presented in one room, featuring three to four poster presenters who will discuss their work individually, and then participate as a group in a moderated panel discussion.

As a poster discussion presenter, you are requested to prepare the following:

  • A paper poster (for display in the viewing hall),
  • An electronic poster for the poster discussion breakout session, and
  • A 2-3 PowerPoint slide discussion which summarizes the key findings and important implications of your work.

Your individual poster (2-3 slides) discussion breakout session should not take more than five minutes, with three additional minutes for questions and comments from the audience. A total of 30 minutes is allowed for the entire group presentation, followed by 20-25 minutes of moderated discussion in a panel format.  This breakout session is only scheduled in the morning breakout time of 9:00 am to 10:00 am. It is not offered in the afternoon.

If you wish to be considered for the poster discussion format, your abstract must be submitted on the Pi Phi website by April 1, 2016. Please select Research Corner - poster discussion breakout session on the Project type drop down box when you upload your abstract. Authors of accepted poster discussion presentations will be notified of acceptance for the breakout session via email communication by April 8, 2016.

The breakout session chair will receive all the abstracts that will be presented in the session and will contact you prior to conference to provide further instructions.  If requested, please send your talking points and your presentation slides to the breakout session chair to be reviewed for duplications or gaps.
