Poster (Working Papers) Guidelines

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_empty_space][vc_custom_heading text=”How to prepare for your presentation:” font_container=”tag:h4|text_align:left”][vc_column_text]Per the CFP, all working papers will be featured as posters. Your paper has been scheduled as a poster session August 2, 2018 (4:30-5:30 PM) at the Connected Learning Summit. A light reception will accompany the presentations.

By facilitating informal discussions between presenters and their audience, poster sessions provide a more intimate forum for exchange. Ideally, a well-constructed poster will be self-explanatory and free you from answering obvious questions so that you are available to supplement and discuss particular points of interest. Successful poster presentations are those that achieve both coverage and clarity.

All posters are displayed at the MIT Media Lab in a single, one-hour session. Presenters must be on hand with their poster during the session.

Please check in at the registration desk at 4:00 PM August 2, 2018.
