Moments from previous live events

A Space Conference on Climate Change

Our lead project manager Isak, has just wrapped up in Oslo at the Global Space Conference on Climate Change 2023 (GLOC 2023). The event brought together experts from space and climate sectors to discuss how space-based solutions can help address the challenges of climate change.

GLOC 2023 was organized by the International Astronautical Federation (IAF) and the Norwegian Space Agency (NOSA). Some topics covered throughout the event included climate change impacts on the environment, applications and services driven by climate change, impacts of a changing climate on policy and law and more.

There were over 75 iPosters created and presented by researchers in 10 minute lightning sessions across two days. Congratulations to all presenters for a fantastic job done. 

AERA Annual Meeting

The 2023 American Educational Research Association (AERA) annual meeting featured a diverse range of research presentations, including a number of engaging and informative iPresentations. We also provided a platform for access to all presentations made during the conference. This included papers delivered during panel discussions, roundtable discussions, workshops symposia and more. There have been over 2000 presentations created and uploaded to the gallery so far. The in-person component has just wrapped up in Chicago and the virtual event will take place in early May.

The AERA Annual Meeting was the first conference to use our newly integrated accessibility widget. This is a major step towards creating a more inclusive online environment. With this widget users with disabilities can easily navigate and interact with the iPoster interactive templates. The widget’s AI-powered technology automatically adjusts the interface to accommodate different accessibility needs. This includes screen reader compatibility, keyboard navigation, and color contrast adjustments. The widget’s user-friendly interface allows users to customize their experience to suit their specific needs, making it easier to access and understand the content on iPosters. We will continue tweaking the widget as we receive user feedback on it. This integration on the interactive templates is a win for accessibility and inclusivity in the science sharing community.

V Summit 2023

We had the privilege of working with the V Foundation on their event the V Summit 2023. iPoster submissions almost doubled since last year with 39 posters being presented over two sessions at the Lansdowne Resort in Leesburg VA. The V Summit is a networking and professional development event for V grantees which as well as iPoster presentations includes various training, information and Q and A sessions to help foster a scientific community and collaboration amongst the grantees.

HHMI – Gilliam Fellows Annual Meeting

Some great shots of the poster session set-up at the Howard Hughes Medical Institute‘s Annual Gilliam Fellows Meeting. We experienced a bit of a hiccup before the poster session started when a fiber cable was clipped at a nearby construction site. All of the poster monitors were suddenly without internet. Thanks to the quick thinking and effort put in by our onsite support rep, Joe, and the HHMI IT team the connection was restored before the start of the next session.
