Poster Pods are a fun, free special event taking place during the 2017 SMM conference poster sessions

WE ARE LOOKING FOR VOLUNTEER POSTER POD LEADERS. Leaders should have considerable knowledge in their research area so they can help lead an informed discussion with poster presenters (e.g., post-docs, research scientists, profs).  Sign up here if you want to volunteer.   Leader sign-up closes on 15 October 2017.

Poster Pods are a great way to engage with poster presenters at the 2017 SMM conference! Pods consist of a group of up to 10 participants led by a fearless poster pod leader around a series of posters of a particular theme (e.g., Acoustics) that the leader is an expert in. Pods give poster presenters the opportunity to showcase their work to a large group of people, and pod participants have the fun of touring the poster session with an expert and meeting new people.  Right now we are looking for volunteers interested in leading a poster pod during one or more of the 4 poster sessions. In the sign-up sheet, you will be asked which theme you would like to lead.

Space is limited and spots will be filled on a first-come, first-serve basis, so sign up now!

Learn more about poster pods at the poster pod information page on the conference website.  If you have any questions, please send an email to

Looking forward to seeing you in Halifax,

Kimberley Davies, SMM 2017 Poster Chair
