To encourage participation in the poster session, we ask that every poster presenter submit a question and a ONE word/number answer.

  • Examples:
    • “Question: What population is studied in our research?  Answer: TEENS.” 
    • “Question: The percentage of people with Danger to Others at the beginning of the study?  Answer: 68%”

Attendees at the conference will come to you during the poster session to learn about your topic, and they will probably ask you the Question you submit. You should be sure to share with them the Answer. They will then submit their list of answers to compete for a prize for our TCOM Conference Scavenger Hunt.
