Poster Presentation Information

Thank you for joining the 2nd Air Sensors International Conference as a Poster Presenter. Poster Presentations are a great way to share key information in a digestible format. Using graphs, graphics and data, you can share a your work's progress and outcomes. Attendees can take their time in reviewing your poster information and forming follow up questions.  Poster Presenters can then answer these follow up questions through personal interactions during the Welcome Reception and Poster Review. 

Thursday morning we will be hosting virtual activities for poster presenters to connect through. Please stay tuned for details on that at the beginning of April.

Virtual Poster Discussion

(For both in-person and virtual presenters)

Both in-person and virtual poster presenters will have the opportunity to talk with ASIC participants about their project on the morning of Thursday, May 12th, through the virtual platform Whova. Thursday morning from 8:00 a.m. PT to 9:30 a.m. PT we are asking in-person and virtual poster presenters to be available on their computer in the Whova app to participate in the Virtual Poster Discussion through small group video conversations with other attendees. During this time, there will only be one live session that will occur in-person at the conference center instead of four to reduce conflicting activities. We expect many attendees to participate in this Virtual Poster Discussion. In-person poster presenters and attendees are welcome to participate in this Virtual Poster Discussion from their home, hotel or the conference center.

We will be breaking the 95 poster presentations in the Virtual Poster Discussion up into Group A, B, and C. Each group will be available for questions for 30 minutes to present directly through the web version of Whova. During your timeslot, attendees will join your Whova room to ask questions for a few minutes and then move to the next room. When your group is not actively presenting, we encourage you to visit the other poster presentations to ask questions of those presenters. The group your poster presentation is part of, was emailed to the address we have on file. Please contact Sandra Hall if you did not receive it.

  • Group A will present from 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. PT
  • Group B will present from 8:30 – 9:00 a.m. PT
  • Group C will present from 9:00 – 9:30 a.m. PT

Please let me know if you are unavailable during your group’s time. After the 1 hour 30-minute Virtual Poster Discussion has completed, there will be small group roundtable discussions on Whova related to each conference session that you and other attendees may join.
