Poster Results

Hi Brent,

Can you post the poster contest results? We are sitting on the edge of our seats!

Paul just announced he'd publish the Poster results shortly

He's running the show at the last meeting right now, so it'll be after noon at the earliest.

Conference Website blogger takes the cake

poster size

hi brent-

wanted to verify the upper limits of the poster size. A standard E-size is 34x44 which would exceed the 42 inch limit. I have a 34x44 version and and 42x54 version of my poster...didn't want to have to replot if I didn't have to.
