Conference Online Poster Sessions
A Poster Session is an opportunity to display and discuss your on-going research or a field of exploration, or a book, art project, or new approach to teaching or helping people. It’s a means to expose new concepts to people so you can gain support or exchange ideas to help the new concept develop.
We want to learn from you. The conference program includes special times for innovations to be presented as “posters”. Normally, posters are displayed on easels around a hall, with dedicated times when authors can present and discuss their materials with attendees. In our online format, we will post authors’ materials as PDF files for attendees to view and consider throughout the conference and beyond, with dedicated Zoom sessions for authors to discuss and present their ideas. Unlike a PowerPoint presentation, the Poster Session is simply present for people to read and ponder throughout the conference.
Your poster should not only include an overview and some details about your topic but include a prominent reference to a web address where attendees can find out more information, contact you, and explore this topic further. Generally, for an in-person conference we include these things in the conference bookstore/shuk display area, but for an on-line event, you must include these things in your poster materials (displayed as PDF files).
Below are some general guidelines for conference Poster Session entries. For help in creating your poster, the Colorado State University website has a very good primer on research-related posters here.
Poster Content Guidelines
- Your topic should be related to Jewish death practices, rituals, and skills involved in this holy work
- Your presentation should be formulated into PDF files, each of which could be multiple pages
- It is recommended that you have overview materials – easy for attendees to scan and get the gist of your poster topic – and more detailed materials, that include significantly more depth that attendees can review if interested
