NSF Future Internet Network Design Meeting
Westin Embassy Row Hotel
2100 Massachusetts Avenue, NW
Washington, DC 20008
November 27-28, 2007
For the next FIND meeting we are asking PIs to do a poster describing their research. We are doing this for several reasons. We have shifted the format of this FIND meeting away from sessions that drill down into what we are doing, and toward sessions that focus on how to combine different approaches in order to meet different sorts of objectives. So the format will provide less of a platform for folks to present their work. At the same time, we will have some new PIs at this meeting, as well as new guests, and we want to have some means for folks to find out about each other's work. So we want to use posters as a way to review what the projects are doing.
We know that posters take work, but we hope that you have material in some form that describes what you are doing (even a set of powerpoint slides that can be tiled into a poster) that you can prepare without too much effort.
The posters will be used at the "extended reception" on the first night. We are planning a reception with plenty of "stand up and walk around" food, lasting for 2 hours, so there is time to see what is there.
We will supply mounting boards--just bring the poster. We are working out the details of printing, mounting and displaying. You will get a follow-up message on mechanics.
As we described in the note on the format of the breakout sessions, we are suggesting 3-5 minute "lightning talks" as a part of the breakouts, so folks can describe how their research relates to the target requirements. Your poster can be used to illustrate that talk.
