General Guidelines for SIDIM Poster Presenters
This year the SIDIM will be held virtually. Poster presenters will be assigned to specific "Break-rooms". Each of these break-rooms will run for about an hour. Participants are expected to "pop in" into a given break-room at any moment within the time period assigned for presentatios. The host of a given break-room will give sharing privilege to the person presenting a poster in that room, so that he or she can show the poster and answer any questions from participants that show up for the poster. The schedule of the break-rooms for poster presentations is available under the "Schedule of Activities" section of this webpage.
Poster presentations foster the exchange of ideas between the contributor and those who have a specific interest in the contributor's work. Poster presentations enable the presenters to proceed at a pace consistent with the interests of the group gathered around them.
How to Prepare your Presentation
- Your presentation should be based on displayed material.
- A concise statement of the problem and the results obtained should be a conspicuous part of the presentation.
- The the speaker should be aware of the fact that the presentation need not be "linearly ordered" as in a talk or written paper. The poster format is supposed to foster one to one comunication as opposed to the one to many format of a contributed presentation.
- Because of computer screen limitations, we suggest breaking up the poster into a 4-6 page document, and plan for a 3-5 minute presentation, which will be repeated as needed as new participants show up.
- Creative use of graphic detail such as drawings, charts and tables is recommended.
At the Meeting
- Presenters should be available during the entire session to answer questions and discuss their work.
- Make sure you know which break-room was assigned for your presentation.
