Poster Presentations

New this year! In an effort to create a gathering/networking area for Special Interest Group members, and to make the poster area more interesting for attendees, all posters have been assigned to one of 14 SIGs.  Each SIG area will be clearly labeled with a large banner suspended from the rigging in the exhibit/poster area.   We realize many posters would be appropriate for than one SIG so we assigned each poster to an area based on the primary SIG that the abstract was submitted to.   We hope you enjoy this new layout!
