All posters will be on display for the whole conference duration. Thus, you need to hang your posters on Feb. 16th, 2017, between 7:30 AM and 8:15 AM.  A handout will be provided on-site listing the location of your poster board for your paper.

Also, you must stand by your poster at POSTER PRESENTATION TIME (5:35pm-6:55pm) for your poster to be qualified for “best paper award” consideration. Conference attendees will be visiting and voting for the best posters. Finger foods will be provided during these poster presentation slots.
