Please join the six science divisions of SLA for the 2009 All Sciences Poster Web Conference featuring many of the posters originally presented at the SLA Annual Meeting, June 2009 at the All Sciences Poster Session and Reception in Washington, D.C. The conference run from October 15 – 29.
The presentations and discussion forums for all posters will be open and available for the duration of the conference, thereby allowing conference attendees ample time to see the posters and take part in any and all sessions of interest. The conference site will be open 24 hours a day; as discussions are asynchronous, you will be able to participate at times most convenient to you.
Full participation in the event will require registration, but this is free and painless. For those of you who have already registered for a previous conference, your Username and Password are still valid. If, however, you have forgotten what they are, just click on the login button on the conference home page without filling in anything, and you’ll be provided a link which will enable you to have your username emailed to you and to reset your password. When you fill in your registered email address in the box provided, you will be sent instructions on how to reset your password.
If you do not choose to register, you can still view all content and discussions, but you will not be able to post your own comments or questions. We do hope, however, you will take advantage of the opportunity to discuss the various topics with the presenters.
