Each participating author will have a table and a poster board at their disposal. You may use the table to display any appropriate display you can fit on the table. Note that you need to bring your own handouts. You will be able to reach an electrical outlet with an extension cord. Furthermore there will be access to a wireless network. No equipment will be provided, but you may bring your own.
All attendees will receive a list of participants with the title of each presentation, a brief description and contact information.
