Posters-Wednesday
Wednesday 13 August 2008
5:30 PM - 7:00 PM
Location: Conv. Ctr. Exhibit Hall B2

Poster authors will begin displaying posters after 10:00 am Wednesday morning. A poster session, with authors present at their posters, will be held Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 7:00 pm. Light refreshments will be served.

Poster Setup
Poster presenters must set up their posters between 10:00 am and 5:00 pm on Wednesday. Poster presenters who have not set up by 5:00 pm on Wednesday will be considered a "no show" and their manuscript will not be published. Presenters must remove their posters immediately after the poster session. Posters not removed will be considered unwanted and will be discarded. SPIE assumes no responsibility for posters left up after the end of each poster session.
