Monday March 25, 2013 at the Univ. of Ky in the Student Center Grand Ballroom

FREE PARKING across the street from Student Center

Obtain parking stub when entering the parking grarge. Bring stub to registration table and a Free parking pass will be provided for the out of town guests.

.............Park in the structure on Limestone (Big parking structure)
............(see direction www page) and take the bridge over to the student center entrance.

The general plan is to have people put up posters in the AM around 9 AM (The boards should be ready by 8:30 AM for mounting). A registration table will be set up by 8:30 AM.

This way people can causally look over the posters in the morning hours and prepare questions for later in the afternoon. From 1:30 to 2:30 even numbered posters will be presented by the authors and 2:30 to 3:30 the odd numbered posters will be presented. For this first year we decided not to have poster judging of presenters but instead the # poster will view the next higher # poster (#1 views #2 from 1:30-2:30 and #2 views #3 at 2:30-3:30). This ensures that every one has a chance to present their poster (note: The last poster # will view the first poster). This is good practice for students. Some are first-time presenters. You will have a short questionnaire to fill out of the poster/presenter you visited. These questioners will be collected in a box and around 3:30 a random drawing of door prizes will be given based on which papers are pulled out (must be present to win and information filled out). Of course after you finished viewing your next higher up numbered poster, please visit the other posters and mingle.
