offer an excellent opportunity for extended informal discussion and active participation by co-authors. Many experienced presenters prefer them, and we encourage you to give a poster serious consideration. An advantage of a poster is that is displayed for a full day; interested persons can view your work even when you are not in attendance. You must put up you poster between 7 AM and 8 AM on the day you are scheduled to present. Your poster should be on view all day including the two hour lunch time break. You are required to be present for a scheduled one and one half hour period (5 PM to 6:30 PM) on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday late afternoon based on the day your poster is scheduled. Depending on how much traffic your poster is receiving, you may either speak with interested persons individually or accumulate a small group and give an impromptu mini-presentation of your poster. Most will probably do both. An especially nice feature of posters is that your co-authors can (and should if possible) be present to assist you in dealing with individual inquiries and to add depth to discussions. "POSTER PUBS" will provide an opportunity for your presentation and discussion in a relaxed setting at a time when a cash bars and light fare are available. Posters must fit on one side of a 2.4 m wide x 1.2 m tall (8 x 4 feet) poster board. This year the poster boards have precisely 8 feet x 4 feet of useable space. Modern poster technology permits the printing of the poster as a single sheet. Persons who do this are advised to leave generous margins so that nothing will be lost Pushpins, (ESA supplies pins but you are encouraged to bring your own) are one method of attaching your work to the board. This year the poster boards are also Velcro compatible, although Velcro is not as reliable as push pins. Check the ESA web site for the latest information before preparing your poster. Because of space and equipment limitations, poster presenters may not use AV equipment.
