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 (http://www.ets.uidaho.edu/levine/poster) prior to
this year's meeting that contained a wealth of advice on making poster
presentations, pictures and examples, and even a tutorial.
