Poster Session 

Posters will be displayed on tables and presenters are required to bring their own tri-fold or similar backing to enable their posters to stand upright for viewing. Efforts will be made to provide alternative backing materials, but it is best for poster presenters to come prepared with their own method of displaying their posters in an upright manner that can stand on top of a table. In general, posters should be approximately 3 feet x 3 feet in size.


Presentations at this year’s RCIO Conference are scheduled to last 50 minutes including a time for Q&A. Each room will be equipped with a projector, screen, laptop computer, and internet connectivity. If other equipment will be needed, please specify in comments box in the registration form.
