Registration is still available for the first ACCP Virtual Poster Symposium to be held May 22–24, 2012. To register for the ACCP Virtual Poster Symposium, go to www.accp.com/myaccount, log-in, and click on the link “Register for ACCP Virtual Poster Symposium.” Registration is free to all ACCP members.
Around 90 posters will be on display during the symposium. All posters will be on display from 8:00 a.m. on May 22 until 11:00 p.m. on May 24 for asynchronous viewing and comment. In addition, three interactive sessions are scheduled—Tuesday, May 22, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (EDT); Wednesday, May 23, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (EDT); and Thursday, May 24, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. (EDT). During these three interactive sessions, authors will be available for real-time question-and-answer sessions alongside their virtual posters.
Registration provides each attendee with access to the virtual posters, the opportunity to leave comments for the author, and the ability to contact the poster presenter during the interactive sessions. To contact poster presenters during the interactive sessions, the attendee must be logged into a Skype account. To create a free Skype account, go to www.skype.com/intl/en-us/get-skype/.
The technology required for attendees is minimal—a broadband Internet connection, a current browser, and Skype (free software, and required only for interactive session participants). Registration for this symposium is available until May 22 at www.accp.com/myaccount.
