Call for Poster Presentations(txt)

APLAS 2004 will include a poster session during the second day of the conference. The poster session aims to give students and professionals an opportunity to present technical materials to the research community, and to get technical advice from other researchers in the field.


In the poster session, each participant will be provided with a space for posting their diagrams and short descriptions of their research (approximately an A1 sized paper, or 594x841mm). Contact with your audience happens through casual conversation. Count on only a reasonable attention span when describing your work. Over five minutes is usually overdoing it. Prepare a list of questions that you would like help getting answered.
