A new kind of poster session—ACerS launches Interactive Technology Forum at ICC4

Published on December 8th, 2011 | By: Eileen De Guire

The Interactive Technology Forum gives researchers creative ways to present their work.

Want your research to be highly visible and remembered long after the conference ends?

Then, think about presenting your research and technology in a new and innovative approach to poster sessions—the Interactive Technology Forum—at ICC4.

“The ICC Interactive Technology Forum will be much more than a 21st Century poster session. With LCD displays, tablets, and laptops for displaying simulations and 3D visualizations, we expect to provide a richer experience for presenters and participants alike,” says Katherine Faber, meeting organizer and professor at Northwestern University.

Soon to be gone are the days of plain posters tacked up on bulletin boards. The wave of the future will be interactive multimedia presentations. Companies and institutions already use a technology-incorporated format for presentations. More and more, traditional presentations are morphing into a multi-media enriched format with a hands-on approach.

Chris Dosch, materials scientist at GE Global research, explains how multimedia presentations were a success at this year’s (internal) GE TechFest.

“In order to showcase the work being done here at GE’s Global Research Center in a more creative and contemporary way, traditional poster presentations were discouraged this year at our internal TechFest. It was an overwhelming success. The key was getting viewers to interact with your display. Instead of wandering around an exhibit hall skimming posters, people were fully engaged in the presentations. In all presentations, the increased engagement resulted in more interest/understanding which in turn led to many fruitful discussions which may not have occurred if a poster on the same topic had not peaked someone’s interest as they walked past.”

Not everyone has used this form of poster presentation but many are excited about trying it out.

“If the general audience (at ICC4) is anything like me, they don’t read the poster top-down from the abstract to the conclusions. The interactive technology presentations give the presenter the opportunity to lead the discussion by controlling the sequence of the delivery and therefore receive more focused feedback from their audience,” says Michelene Hall, founder, Excelerant Ceramics.

To take part in this innovative forum, submit your abstract by Jan. 17, 2012. For more information on the Interactive Technology Forum, visit the ICC4 homepage.

The International Congress on Ceramics will be held July 15-19, 2012 in Chicago. To learn more about this dynamic meeting, visit the ICC4 homepage

    A very good chemistry tutor is the key for your child’s very good chemistry grades. Chemistry need to not be taken as a subject that is certainly only vital at the high school level. The chemistry grades your child brings property can choose whether or not your child gets admitted to his college of selection or not. Robust chemistry concepts support throughout life. So your child requirements to have a solid chemistry foundation with regards to his high school science subject.

    On the web chemistry tutoring offers your kid access for the most effective chemistry teachers from around the world. These chemistry tutors have vast teaching knowledge, which makes the understanding encounter powerful for your kid. Your kid gets individual attention from on the internet chemistry teachers, hence it is actually much easier to pick out locations of difficulty. The chemistry teaching can concentrate on these areas for rapid improvement.

    With students getting additional electronically-oriented than ever, chemistry tutoring engages their attention extra than conventional tutoring or coaching would. On-line tutoring makes use of varied approaches to make the studying encounter useful for the kid.

    The online tutoring sessions can also prepare young children for SAT Chemistry, AP exams, State Tests along with their school tests. Webinars, guest lectures and interesting videos are also produced out there for the students.

    The communication also will allow for instantaneous feedback from the online chemistry teachers, thus promptly correcting any blunders the student makes. The instantaneous feedback assists students learn the subject much more simply.

They are able to also get assist with their chemistry concepts by focusing on distinct chemistry locations every day for a smaller quantity of time. It is convenient and less costly than private tuition. A hard-to-get chemistry idea or perhaps a challenging chemistry test can be tackled with the help of chemistry teaching.

    Your point is well taken. Please note that the Technology Forum will include both traditional posters as well as interactive presentations. Meeting organizers wanted to provide this option to presenters so that they could communicate their research and technology to attendees in a unique and interactive format. Presenters will be provided with 32 inch monitors if they choose the interactive option. We think this additional aspect will add excitement to the “Poster Session” reception and concurrent Exhibition to be held on Monday and Tuesday evenings.

    While this all sounds so cool and high tech, I wonder if it misses the point of a poster session. You walk by, see the title of the poster, and stop to talk if the subject interests you. How on earth will you see the title of something presented on such a small screen?
