GIS Day 2012
Information for Presenters
Want to showcase your geographic research by creating a poster and chatting with others about it? I hope so, because we would love to have you!
How to register as a Showcase Poster Presenter?
Register here online to present a poster.
What is expected of presenters?
Presenters will create a poster (see details below) highlighting GIS research that is either completed or currently in process. Then, on GIS Day (November 14) from 1pm-2pm stand by your poster and talk to folks about your research. That’s it. No pressure. No prepared speeches.
When do presenters need to create the poster?
We would like to have all posters by November 7 so that we can get them printed, create handouts (smaller versions of your poster), etc.
How do presenters go about creating this poster?
Presenters do not need to print out their poster. Once you register as a presenter or otherwise let us know you will present a poster, we will send you a link where you can upload your file(s). Once uploaded, we will print the posters as well as print out smaller handouts of your poster. When you arrive on GIS Day, your poster will already be on display and ready to go.
What specs are required of the poster files?
- Preferred dimensions are 36x54
- Acceptable file formats: PowerPoint, Photoshop, TIF, JPG
- Maximum file size: 100 MB
Do presenters get anything snazzy for their efforts?
Yes, of course. Every presenter will receive a Certificate of Attendance, and an impressive GIS activity to put on their resumes.
