Poster Walks

Led by an expert in the field, Poster Walks are interactive, small-group tours of posters deemed novel, scientifically intriguing, or otherwise interesting. They are designed to promote group interaction surrounding poster presentations that deepens the conversation regarding the research, both for poster presenters and attendees joining the walk.  At each poster, the poster presenter typically provides a short presentation about their research, and then the conversation begins. Often the poster walk leader engages in discussion with the presenter about their work, spanning everything from the study purpose to conclusions. 

Poster Walks will take place on the following dates and times

  • Thursday, January 25: 5:45 PM-6:30 PM
  • Friday, January 26: 5:45 PM-6:30 PM

Poster Walks will begin 15 minutes after the start of the Poster Session and attendees interested in joining should meet at the Poster Assistance Desk. Poster Walks are not ticketed and do not need to be reserved in advance.
