Posters and e-posters: Poster sessions are for displaying research that offers the opportunity for individualized, informal discussion of the research. Posters are especially effective for presenting work-in-progress, fieldwork and results of empirical research if data can be presented visually (e.g. charts, graphs, tables). A block of time will be designated when presenters are available to discuss their posters. Abstracts should be a maximum of 300 words in length.
