The solid stately tripods that proudly display glossy boards of timely research and projects will stay in storage this year.  But don’t fret, the excitement and networking of the traditional poster session will still be a part of this year’s virtual UMA conference. While we are not able to hold the poster session in person this year, UMA is taking inspiration from other presentation methods to bring a virtual poster session to the conference.  Loosely based on Pecha Kucha style presentations, poster presenters will create short poster-like presentations of 1-3 slides that will be shared in a Zoom meeting as they quickly share the key points of their research or project in 3 minutes.  Presenters will be divided into small groups based on poster content. After all presenters for a group have gone, attendees will be able to engage the presenter and each other in a deeper discussion of themes presented.

We are excited that this new format will allow presenters and even more attendees than other years to engage in meaningful discussions of current projects and research. The give and take of feedback and insights of the poster session is a highlight of the annual conference.  

Whether you are a seasoned professional, EMP, volunteer, or student, don’t miss out on the opportunity to either present or attend. CLICK HERE to submit your research or idea as one of this year’s amazing posters.
