Posters-Thursday
Thursday 26 April 2012
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

All symposium attendees are invited to attend the poster sessions. Come view the high-quality papers that are presented in this alternative format, and interact with the poster author who will be available for discussion. Enjoy light refreshments while networking with colleagues in your field. Attendees are required to wear their conference registration badges to the poster sessions.

Authors may set-up their posters between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm the day of their poster. Posters that are not set-up by the 5:00 pm cut-off time will be considered no-shows and their manuscripts may not be published. Poster authors should be at their papers from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm to answer questions from attendees. All posters and other materials must be removed no later than 8:00 pm. Any papers left on the boards at the close of the poster session will be considered unwanted and will be discarded. SPIE assumes no responsibility for posters left up after the end of each poster session.
