Call for posters

A Poster Session consists of a number of simultaneous presentations by individuals who are assigned a "booth" space (similar to a typical exhibit booth) in a large meeting room. Each space contains a 4- by 8-foot posterboard on which an abstract, key points, conclusions, charts, and tables or diagrams are posted. A small table is provided for display of preprints or samples related to the presentation.

During the Poster Session, meeting attendees browse among the presentations and speak directly with the presenters. Poster presentations are informal,
conversational, and highly conducive to the interchange of information between audience and presenter.

Subject areas for poster presentations include:
* Composites and Manufactured Products
* Management
* Processes
* and many other topics
* Solid Wood Products
* Wood Engineering
* Fundamental Disciplines

Poster presentations are a primary means of disseminating technical information at the International Convention. Individuals interested in giving a poster presentation must submit a poster reservation form by January 14, 2011 - poster requests will be accepted until ballroom capacity is reached. Detailed information and guidelines for presenting a poster will be sent to each presenter.
