2024 China-America Frontiers of Engineering Symposium

Poster Sessions for US Attendees

Each attendee, including speakers and organizers, should prepare a poster to share information about their work during the poster sessions. Please create both:
1) a physical poster for the in-person poster session with US attendees, and
2) a poster slide to use during the flash poster session with US attendees and the virtual poster session with those in China.
In-Person Poster Session (with US attendees only)
  • You can present a poster that you have presented at another venue – you do not have to make a new poster.
  • This is when you will have ample time for individual discussion, as well as during breaks over the course of the symposium.
  • We will provide tacks and up to 4 ft. x 4 ft. (1.22 meters x 1.22 meters) of space on a bulletin board on which to affix your printed poster. 
  • During the in-person poster session, you will stand by your poster so others can stop by and talk to you about it. 
  • Please bring your printed poster to the meeting site on Monday, June 17. 
  • Unfortunately, NAE does not have funding available to cover the cost of poster production. If this is a factor, the information can be presented on individual sheets of paper. 
  • If you do not want to carry your poster on the airplane, you can send it directly to:

Katrina Vera
Beckman Center
100 Academy Drive
Irvine, CA  92617

Please be sure to note "hold for 2024 CAFOE Symposium." In case you are sending it via FedEx, Katrina's phone number is (949) 721-2211.

Flash Poster Session (with US attendees only)
  • Please prepare a “flash talk” for your poster presentation, a very brief “teaser” presentation of no more than one minute to give an overview of your poster to all in-person participants so they can identify topics that interest them. 
  • All slides will be loaded onto a/v equipment prior to the symposium to facilitate going through all the slides quickly (in a “flash”). 
  • Please keep the file size as small as possible. 
  • Be sure to include your name in the text of the slide itself so attendees can make a note of the poster that they absolutely must visit! 
  • Poster slides will be available for asynchronous viewing on the website a few weeks before the symposium.
  • Best Practice: Keep it simple! Feedback from past virtual poster sessions indicates that if text is too small and the slide is too crowded, it is very hard to see and read onscreen. See this example poster slide.
Joint Poster Session (with attendees in China)
During this session, we will provide zoom breakout rooms for attendees in the US and China to have an exchange over their posters.
