Symposium Poster e-mail

Hello Poster Group,
I'm checking in to make sure that you all are talking and starting to puttogether the poster for the session on Friday. Please read on...The poster does not have to be fancy, but you'll want to collect the researchquestions and photos from the blog and then craft an introduction to the entireprogram and discuss the various projects being done. You might want to useinformation and photos from last year's program, perhaps give a brief history ofthe program and it's inception: http://uwhonorsinamsterdam2006.blogspot.com/Please let me know if you have any questions about the program. I do have theposter from last year (in my office) and even the pdf if you'd like to view.We will give you some time to meet this week, about 15 minutes at the end ofclass on both Monday and Wed, but we hope that students can stay a bit afterclass and/or set up another time to meet. I think much of this can be done overemail, but someone probably needs to take the lead to get the ball rolling (Ibelieve Haley volunteered). The poster session runs 12:00-1:30 and again from3:00-3:30. They would like you to check in with your poster between 8:00-11:00(check in at registration table, set up the poster then come back at 12:00). Atleast one person needs to be present standing by the poster to answer anyquestions, so you'll want to coordinate schedules.The Symposium organizers ask "Presenters...to remain at their posters during theformal session times and as available throughout the afternoon. You should beprepared with a three- to five-minute summary for visitors using your poster asa visual guide. Some visitors may ask additional questions. Additionally, youare also strongly encouraged to attend the presentation sessions." Again, moredetails about poster here:http://www.washington.edu/research/urp/symp/posterparticipants.html
Let me know if you have any questions. Julie
