Barak's Virtual Poster Gallery
We very much enjoy the poster medium at professional meetings. Poster
presentations duplicate the challenge to
Hillel of telling the essence of an issue while standing on
one foot. Wandering through a poster session, we can pick and choose much
better than we can from the scheduled oral presentations and, should a
presentation be tedious,verbose or poorly delivered, we can simply move along
without commitment or embarassment. Furthermore, standing in front of our own
posters, we can talk to scores of visitors during a poster session and be
assured that we have walk-by "readership". When the session ends and the lights
go down, these posters are sometimes posted in the hallways of our home
institution and sometimes trotted out for informational meetings but, by and
large, their time in the sun is over...until now.
