Speaker and Poster Presenter Information | June 21, 2018, 10:09 a.m.




Congratulations on getting a poster at this year’s ASA Science Meeting at Swinburne! 

I know for many of you it’s a “downgrade” from a talk, but please don’t see it that way. Posters are an integral part of a conference like this and a great way to advertise the important science you’re doing, start discussions, build collaborations, etc. Take advantage of the opportunity.




Throughout the meeting there’ll be 5 poster sparkler sessions on the main stage. A sparkler spot gives you 1 1/2 minutes to briefly advertise your poster and can be a lot of fun. Basically you want to say: your name, where your poster is, the title of your poster, and a 30-60 second pitch (including the key idea/result). Make it memorable!

Sparkler speaker names, times and order details are below. Please make sure you’ve uploaded your background slide well BEFORE your session begins. It should preferably be a picture of your poster. Note PDF ONLY!
