The sessions will take place Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday of the annual meeting.

POSTERS

The 2019 ECP Annual Meeting will have two poster sessions. Posters should be mounted on day one of the meeting and remain up for the duration of the meeting.

The purpose of the poster session is to promote face-to-face dialogue between ECP project representatives on topics of potential collaboration and requirements-sharing. You or someone on your team should be present at your poster space during the session you've been assigned to, to engage with other project teams. You will want to present material in your poster session that will help others understand your project and how you might interact with it from a different project's perspective. Details including list of posters, dates and times will follow.

       ● Call for Posters Proposals: click here
       ● Deadline: November 30, 2018
       ● Eligibility: Every ECP project will be expected to provide a poster.
       ● Requirements: Please incorporate the ECP logo [download] in your Poster(s). A PDF file of all posters will be gathered before the event and posted online and in the conference mobile application. Details about poster submissions and maximum size will follow.
