Poster Session

The O'Reilly Bioinformatics Technology Conference will feature a formal poster session that encourages presenters and attendees to learn about each others' work. Posters will be judged by our poster subcommittee for best in show.

Date: Tuesday, February 4, 2003
Time: 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Location: Balboa Room (third floor)

Please note that the start time of the poster session has changed to begin one hour later than previously scheduled; at 7:00 PM.

The rules are simple:

The poster exhibition room (Balboa Room) opens at 12:00 noon on Tuesday to allow presenters time to hang their posters. Poster presenters must be present in the poster exhibition room at 6:00 pm for the formal poster session. There is no audio/visual support for the poster session.

The poster exhibition room will remain open from 7:00 am - 4:00 pm on Wednesday, the following day, to allow for casual viewing by conference attendees.

All posters must be removed from the room before 6:00 pm on Wednesday evening. O'Reilly & Associates is not responsible for lost or damaged posters and makes no claim to keep them secure.
