A Poster Session is a method of presentation that has proven to be a successful medium for conference delegates to share their work, experience and ideas in an informal, networking environment. Each presenter creates a poster within certain guidelines and has an opportunity to ‘sell’ the topic of their poster in a two minute pitch to the delegates during the main session. The delegates then have an opportunity to talk to those presenters to find out more about their project during the breaks in the programme.
As an important networking occasion for members in the EMEA region, this part of the Regional Council Meeting will provide an invaluable opportunity to hear from peers and practitioners, to explore new ideas and ways of working, maybe pave the way for future collaborations, and provide talking points throughout the rest of the event.
The theme for this session is Demonstrating Innovation in Data Management and we are particularly interested to hear about work in the areas of linked data, data visualisation, data analytics, data or text-mining, mobile applications and augmented reality.
The EMEA Regional Council will select a number of people to present their poster and they will be notified well in advance of the meeting so that they have time to prepare their posters . The Poster Session will take place during the breaks and lunch on both days.
There will be a presentation of an award at the end of the meeting on 27 February for the Best Poster, as selected by members of the EMEA Regional Council Executive Committee during the course of the two days.
If you are interested in presenting a Poster at EMEARC 2013, you will need to complete the form before the closing date of 9 January 2013.
