The ECP 2nd Annual Meeting will have two poster sessions. Every ECP project will be expected to provide a poster. 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.
All posters should not exceed 34” x 45”. For more details about the poster board display, see http://www.tds-exhibits.com/what-we-do/#boards. We plan on two posters per board, per side.
If you would like to submit a request for additional space, contact Lora Wolfe (firstname.lastname@example.org). Lora will notify you which poster session day you've been assigned.
Please incorporate the ECP logo [download] in your poster(s). Any posters remaining after February 8, 5:00pm, will be removed.

Monday and Friday (pre/post meeting)
Although the official dates of the Annual Project Meeting are February 6 - 8, 2018, Breakout rooms will be available on Monday, February 5 (all day), and Friday February 9 (all day) for use by teams to hold side meetings. Side Meeting discussions could be used for individual project teams to hold organizational or technical interactions, or for multiple teams to work together on integration activities, such as shared fate milestones. There are 16 rooms available, ranging in size from 30 to 50 people.
The project committee will be accepting Side Meeting requests, and will endeavor to accommodate as many discussions as possible. In the event that more requests are made than can be satisfied, priority will be given to those involving multiple teams and those involving larger attendee counts, because of the scheduling difficulty and expense that large and multi-project meetings would impose away from this venue.
To make a request, please include the following information and send to Corliss Thompson (email@example.com):
- Projects involved
- Estimated headcount
- Reason for meeting
- Scheduling constraint
- Preferred time
Please note, side meeting requests deadline is January 22, 2018.
