iPoster Plus and the Radcliffe Wave at AAS 235


We’re in Honolulu for the American Astronomical Society’s winter meeting. Our iPoster Plus format has really caught on: moderated oral sessions using all of the dynamic, interactive, multimedia functions that the iPoster system can deliver. 

 
A great example of this is Alyssa Goodman’s iPoster Plus presentation on the Radcliffe Wave.  Alyssa, Astronomy Professor at Harvard and co-director of Science at the Radcliffe Institute, presented an amazing discovery: a monolithic, wave-shaped gaseous structure — the largest ever seen in our galaxy — made up of interconnected stellar nurseries:https://bbc.com/news/science-environment-51021704

iPosterSessions at AGU 2019 – where Science Matters


The annual American Geophysical Union Fall Meeting is the largest international Earth and Space science meeting in the world, with annual attendance of  30,000 scientists, students, educators, and other stakeholders from around the globe.

The 2019 meeting was the culmination of AGUs Centennial year and was our third year of working with AGU. Over 900 iPosters were presented in back-to-back two-hour sessions on all five days. Authors first presented their research in three-minute moderated eLightning talks in one of three large-screen HD theaters. Presenters then dispersed to 60 pre-assigned large-format interactive touch screens for in-depth discussions with attendees. Smaller screens for individual exploration and spontaneous meetings were also available in the eLightning Pavilion.

Nature and people thrive in a world inspired by ecology


iPosters at BES2019 – this was our second year working with the British Ecological Society for their Annual Meeting, this time in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The BES is the oldest ecological society in the world, established over a century ago in 1913.  Presentations focused on the interactions among living things and the environment. They provide insights into the interdependence between people and nature  – vital knowledge for food production, maintaining clean air and water, and sustaining biodiversity in a changing climate.

iPosters at flagship laboratory for the life sciences


We’re in Heidelberg Germany for our first assignment with EMBL, the European Moleclular Biology Laboratory  – one of the world’s leading research institutions, and Europe’s flagship laboratory for the life sciences. 

EMBL is an intergovernmental organisation with more than 80 independent research groups covering the spectrum of molecular biology. It operates across six sites: Heidelberg (main laboratory), Barcelona, Hamburg, Grenoble, Rome, and EMBL-EBI Hinxton.

Our current event – EMBLCanGen – gathers leading scientists & researchers from around the world for discussions and presentations covering key topics in Cancer Genomics.

iPosterSessions at the International Astronautical Congress

Our first project for the International Astronautical Federation – their 70th annual International Astronautical Congress, IAC 2019 – came to a close in Washington DC today. The Congress was organised locally by the American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, and was attended by over 7 thousand scientists, engineers and scholars – all focused on the challenges and promises of getting humans and support systems up into space.

Taking place during the 50th anniversary year of the first human moon landing, the Congress was abuzz with plans for revisiting the moon, moving on to Mars, and sending remote systems to explore other destinations in our solar system and beyond.

Over 300 iPosters were presented by researchers from over 40 countries, on topics ranging from Space Propulsion to the Search for Extra Terrestrial Intelligence, from Satellite Systems to Space Debris, from Space Life Sciences to the Law of Outer Space.

We’re looking forward to next year’s IAC in Muscat, Oman!
