SERC Poster Session Submittal Guidelines

The poster session is a great place for continued discussions and networking within the context of the great work landscape architecture students, organizations, individuals and businesses have been doing in the southeast region.  It is our goal to have a poster session so we welcome posters from presenters who desire a more casual venue, posters from session applicants who we were not able to apply for presentations, and networking opportunities for emerging and young professionals to present their work.

1.  Poster Registration:

We will accept the submission of posters and poster abstracts until close of business on Friday, May 3rd.  There is no need to send a copy of the poster, but your poster title and abstract must be confirmed with the poster team contact.  We reserve the right to limit the number of posters to 10.
