ACS Virginia Section Poster Session and Meeting

Friday, April 14, 2017

The Poster Session will be held from 5:00 – 7:00pm in the Academic Commons in Gilmer Hall.  The meeting will begin at 7:00pm in room 190.

Posters may be set up after 3:00pm on Friday, April 14th in the Academic Commons on the 2nd floor of Gilmer Hall.  The presentation surfaces will provide you with a 4′ wide poster area.  Feel free to leave your poster up until after the ACS program.  Keep your text simple, in large letters, and to the point. Complete sentences are not required. People do not like to read a lot of words; they want to know what the main points are.  You should be available for discussion with viewers for the 5:00-7:00 p.m.
