AAAS Pacific Division Meeting

Currently, my favorite type of presentation is the poster session. While presenting a talk is also rewarding, it provides little opportunity to speak with individuals at the conference. The poster session, however, is more socially interactive.

Before entering the presentation hall, attendees may review the program, and mark the titles that interest them. With this in hand, they can browse the posters, stopping to chat when so inclined. The actual presentation, when done well, can be read quickly and makes good use of visual elements. As a presenter, my bonus is a steady stream of interesting people seeking information about my work and the opportunity to speak with me.

On Monday, June 16th, I'll be presenting a poster at the 84th Annual meeting of the AAAS Pacific Division. The session runs from 9am to 5pm.
