Poster-Tuesday
Tuesday 22 January 2008
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

All symposium attendees are invited to attend the poster sessions provided as an opportunity to enjoy refreshments while reviewing poster papers. Each evening will represent a different set of conferences to promote opportunities for networking with colleagues in your field. Attendees are encouraged to review the high-quality papers that are presented in this alternate format and to interact with the poster authors. Since poster sessions are technical events and part of the conference program, it is not appropriate for spouses and families to attend these events. Attendees are requested to wear their conference registration badges to the poster sessions. Poster presenters may post their poster papers Wednesday morning starting at 10:00 am in the Fairmont Hotel, and will need to remove their papers immediately following the poster session that evening. 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. Poster authors should be at their papers from 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm to answer questions from attendees.
