2020 ePosters

For the 2020 National Conferences, posters will be displayed electronically via a platform called The Learning Toolbox by Kubify. This software allows authors to present their research or topic with a visual display supplemented by videos, images, audio examples, documents, surveys, weblinks, and more. 

Attendees may opt to engage with ePoster authors via the software’s built-in chat function (to post questions or comments, users must either login via social media or create a free local account). Additionally, when one marks posters using the “favorite” function, they will be notified of ongoing discussion related to those posters.

View this year’s posters. Attendees are encouraged to explore posters in advance of the conference. During the program, authors will be available according to the following schedule to interact with attendees regarding their work.
