Posters as whiteboards

The Poster Session blog (commercial site) notes that you can write on some laminated posters with dry erase markers.

This opens up interesting  possibilities. You can leave space on your poster where you can write in discussions. You could leave diagrams unfinished, then draw on the poster to show relationships as you’re giving the poster.

Whoa. I JUST LAST WEEK put up an old poster in our lab for us to use as a white board (on the back, so as not to dirty the awesome science on the front). We found that only the posters printed on expensive archival paper erase.

It's been a fantastic way to open up white board space for our planning of the summer undergrad students schedule though, of course, it does open up possibilities for real science at conferences too. ;)
