The Faculty of 1000 is the latest entity to set up a poster archive. It’s announced on this blog post; you can find the archive itself here.
Although the archive is up and running, pickings may be a bit slim for a while. The massive Neuroscience meeting, which I know well, has just tens of posters. And it’s not at all clear how one will be able to browse through this archive.
I’ll be submitting a poster from the 2009 Society for Integrative and Comparative Biology meeting; I’ll let you know how the submission process goes.
This is the third conference poster archive I know of; Nature Precedings and ePosters are the others. It’ll be interesting to see which, if any, thrive. If there are more, please email me!
Still, none offer what I think is badly needed: a “best of the best” gallery where posters are chosen for primarily for graphic and design excellence, not so much for the cleverness of the science.
What to do with the poster?
