Poster sessions are normally a significant part of the DH conference, and posters provide an important opportunity to discuss work in progress, to demonstrate software, and to share ideas in an environment that is more conversational than a regular session. Poster presenters can expect that the Local Organizers will provide posterboard of at least 1 meter by 1.5 meters for each poster, along with thumb-tacks or other means of affixing the poster to the posterboard.
If a poster presenter wants to use a laptop as part of a poster presentation, he or she should consult with the Local Organizers to make sure this is possible. In the event that it is possible, the presenter should not neglect to confirm that the Local Organizers can provide a table, power, wireless or any other necessary facilities. Projectors, external monitors, etc. are not usually provided for posters.
