The chair of the poster session will be there to help you manage the group and help facilitate the discussion. He or she will introduce the presenters in the session, and provide a brief explanation of how the session will run. The object of the 3-5 minute introduction is to be able to set the scene and provide the main points about your poster and what it’s about. Once the introduction is complete, the presenters and delegates will physically move from the Speakers Lounge, to the Poster Zone (where your actual poster is displayed), and continue the presentation and Q&A next to the actual poster board. If there is more than one poster in a session, the chair may assist in breaking up the groups into smaller groups.
