Frequently Asked Questions

How large may my poster be?

Although the email announcement referred to "easels," the posters will actually be pinned to fabric walls. By our calculations each student will have at least 9 feet of horizontal space. So any reasonably sized poster will fit.


Could I stay beyond Friday?

We can reserve your dorm room for you for an extra night if you email Aaron Wagner ([email protected]) by Thursday, June 14th at 5 p.m. Eastern.

After that, we can't guarantee that your room will be available. You will need to pay for the extra night, which will be around $50. You can do this when you check in.


How does 30-second madness work?

You send us one slide, in PDF format, to [email protected] by Friday Jun. 15th. Before your appointed poster session, you'll have 30 seconds in front of the whole group, with the slide projected behind you, to explain what your poster is about. It is up to you what to put on your slide, but we recommend, in addition to your name and the title of your posters, figures and bullet points that summarize your problem and results.


What amenities are provided by the dorms?


We're told that fresh towels and face cloths, soap, shampoo, drinking glass, and daily housekeeping is included. The dorm is equipped with WiFi.
