The submitter then can stand around to field questions and
discussion from those interested.
Although A0 paper is a bit Old Worlde in this age. Maybe a
bunch of screens
to websites containing the "Poster" and slots when you can come
(physically or online) and chat to the author.
Back in 2012 I attended CITRENZ conference and won the best
student post award. It was in the format of an interactive
poster. In other words I had a screen with the actual poster
(digital form) as well as a mini presentation where by I was
demonstrating brain computer interface (BCI) technology and
explaining its significance.
Other posters were actually in paper form. I believe it was A0.
Not all were part of the competition. A lot were for pre paper
demonstration of research.
Something like this would be rather neat to have. That way those
who can't be there or cannot do a talk, can present something
without taking up much time.
Many a talk I have been to would have seemed a lot better as a
a hour of my life.
I doubly like this ideas as, alas, I will not be able to attend
will gladly read online every poster submitted.
