Creating Your Virtual Poster

Virtual poster sessions are designed for presenters who are not able to be present in person at the conference. Travel, funding, and schedule can sometimes make it difficult for participants to attend the conference in-person. In order to support more inclusive participation, virtual poster sessions enable participants to present work to a body of peers and to engage with colleagues from afar, bringing global ideas to the local spaces.
