Poster Walks

Led by an expert in the field, Poster Walks are interactive, small-group tours of posters deemed novel, scientifically intriguing, or otherwise interesting to the Poster Walk leader. They are designed to promote group interaction surrounding poster presentations that deepens the conversation regarding the research, both for poster presenters and poster reviewers joining the walk.  At each poster, the poster presenter typically provides a short presentation about their research, and then the conversation begins. Often the group engages in discussion with the presenter about their work and with one another, spanning everything from the study purpose to conclusions.
