Local Chapter Poster Display/Competition
Monday, 11 January - Thursday, 14 January
AMS Local Chapters are invited to display a poster related to their local chapter history and recent activities. The poster display will be held at the New Orleans Convention Center in the poster hall. Chapter Poster setup begins at 8:00 a.m. on Monday, 11 January. Teardown ends at 12:00pm on Thursday, 14 January. The poster hall will be closed to the public after that time so please make sure you collect your poster by 12:00pm. Display panels will be available as well as pushpins. Each chapter will be allotted a 4' x 8' poster space. If you would like to have your poster judged by the Local Chapter Affairs Committee (LCAC) for the poster award competition, please have it up by 11am on Monday, 11 January. Posters will be judged on content and design.
If you will be displaying a poster, please email a jpeg file of the final poster to Kelly Savoie ([email protected]) by December 28th as photos of the chapter poster winners will be displayed on screen at the Chapter Officers Breakfast on Tuesday, 12 January.
You may view posters from the 95th Annual Meeting here.
Guidance for the poster award competition.
Instead of publishing chapter abstracts in the Annual Meeting Program as we have done in prior years, chapters displaying posters will be listed on the AMS Web site and linked to the Annual Meeting App under the Special Events icon. Links to each chapter’s web site will be included.
