Poster Sessions

Would you like to present without doing a formal presentation? Then the Poster Session is for you!

Maximize your time at SNUG and check out the poster sessions presented by your colleagues and SCC staff members.
This showcase will give you the opportunity to engage in discussions with the researchers as they accompany their posters.

Do you have something you want to share or a topic you want to discuss, but don't have time to prepare a full-blown SNUG presentation? The SNUG poster sessions enable you to present in a one-on-one setting without having to present before a large group.
