Poster Presentation Abstracts

Accepted in-person poster presenters will print and bring their poster with them, and they will be displayed on an easel (easel is provided). They will have the opportunity to discuss their poster research with other attendees. In-person presenters are also expected to provide an electronic copy for AAVSO staff to display on the website. (More info below.) 

Online Meeting attendees whose poster presentations are accepted will provide an electronic version for AAVSO staff to display on the website only. (More info below.) 

For those whose presentation abstract is accepted (whether for online or in person):

  • Email your poster in .pdf form (to do this: create your poster in a single Powerpoint slide, then save it as a pdf) to Lward@aavso.org by October 24, 11:59 p.m. ET. Include in the email: your name and any contact info you wish to provide to the public.
    • We encourage poster presenters to also provide one audio OR video recording for their poster session. Videos may only be of you speaking and/or your poster.
      • Audio-only files must be in .m4a format, a maximum of 10 minutes, and no larger than 40 MB, unless linking to an online publicly-available recording on a third-party site.
      • Video with audio must be in .mp4 format, a maximum of 10 minutes, and no larger than 40 MB, unless linking to an online publicly-available recording on a third-party site
