Call for Posters

The ASciNA Awards Gala on Saturday October 22 is the Gala Event of the Austrian Research and Innovation Talks ARIT2016 (https://arit2016.splashthat.com/, http://www.ostaustria.org/images/arit2016/pdf/arit2016agenda.pdf, location: The Hart House at the University of Toronto - 7 Hart House Circle, Toronto, ON M5S 3H3.)

This year there will be a poster session during the ASciNA Awards Gala. We are seeking high quality research posters from Austrian Scientists and Scholars doing research in North America. The poster session is open to all scientific fields and to all ASciNA members (http://www.ascina.at). An ASciNA committee will select the best 20 poster submissions for presentation. Selection criteria include impact, scientific quality, and quality of presentation.

Accepted posters have to follow the provided ASciNA poster template (4’ x 6’. Note that this is too big for PowerPoint, and thus the template is 4" x 6" and the poster needs to be scaled when printing out). The author is required to present the poster during the poster session and opening reception (6pm – 7pm). Easels will be provided, but the authors are responsible for bringing their poster to the session. Further, authors need to provide a single summary slide in PowerPoint to be displayed during breaks at ARIT to draw attention to the poster session. Authors are encouraged to register early for ARIT2016 to apply for travel grants. Please submit your poster as PDF via email to poster@ascina.at by Friday Oct. 7 (deadline extended), 11:59pm PDT.
