Poster Session & Fast-Forward Poster Session Information


Poster Session

Registration for the Poster Session can be done on Sunday or Monday at the registration table. The poster session will feature three categories of posters:

  1. Demonstrations of meshes from participants of the roundtable from which the Best Mesh or Meshing Maestro award is selected

  2. Technical exhibits of current research in mesh and grid generation

  3. Student exhibits of current research in mesh and grid generation

From the first category, the annual Meshing Maestro is selected by attendees of the poster session.  The winner has the opportunity to have their design used for next year's conference T-Shirt.  The primary criterion used by the peer review for the Meshing Maestro award is based on the aesthetic appeal of the mesh.  Therefore, in this category, we solicit posters that emphasize striking visuals with few technical details.

The second and third categories are an ideal forum for authors who would prefer not to submit a formal technical paper, but would like to illustrate state-of-the-art techniques and procedures in which they are currently involved.  Session speakers are also invited to display practical results of their work at the poster session.  The conference steering committee will select winners for the best technical and student posters.  To participate in the poster session, you must be attending the conference.

Accordingly, each poster author/team need to submit a brief presentation (MS Power Point file, compatible with Win7 or lower) of their work described in a few PPT slides whose total presentation time must not exceed 2 minutes.

All presentation files for the fast-forward session (in Powerpoint or PDF format) must be e-mailed to the the Professional Development and Posters subcommittee chair Brian Jean at baj@lanl.gov on or before October 2, 2013.
