Date: Wed, 16 Jul 1997 13:02:36 -0400 From: Allan Metcalf Subject: ADS Annual Meeting: Poster sessions At the ADS Annual Meeting, we've never had poster sessions, though our presentations often involve maps and charts that lend themselves especially to that mode. Our call for papers (Ahem, reminder: deadline August 15) makes no mention of poster sessions, but if anyone would like to try, I suspect we'd find it congenial. (Our program chair is Ronald Butters, if you want to discuss it with him.) The Association for Asian Studies has this information on poster sessions. You might want to look at the web site mentioned: >Marilyn Levine at U. >of Idaho, in particular, has been a great proponent of posters and has >worked tirelessly to promote the format's possibilities. She organized a >poster session website ( prior to >this year's meeting that contained a wealth of advice on making poster >presentations, pictures and examples, and even a tutorial. - Allan Metcalf Executive Secretary American Dialect Society
