How the online research poster hall works:

All the electronic posters (pdfs) and any accompanying audio are uploaded to a page on the AAVSO website. This page will be part of the Annual Meeting attendee packet and will be advertised in AAVSO's welcome and break slideshows and elsewhere. Anyone can view your poster and listen to any recorded audio at their leisure.
