With the Poster + 1-Minute Preview, you will present a traditional poster as well as introduce yourself and your work with a quick 1 minute preview talk during a conference session. The 1-minute preview talks offer an opportunity to introduce yourself to the international research community. Suggested information to present: Name; Where you are from; What you are studying; What lab; When you expect to be done with your degree; Your poster number; Poster topic/session; Perhaps one or two sentences to highlight an exciting research finding, etc. We cannot accommodate any slides for this 1-minute talk. We also suggest that you practice your presentation and make sure that you stay below 1 minute.
Please verify your Poster format category, poster session placement and 1-Minute Preview presentation date and time on the General Poster Program. The program is posted in the poster room (Monterey Bay room) and is also available online at
