Student Poster Submissions and free printing
We strongly encourage students to contribute to the Workshop in the form of Research Posters. The students that present a Research Poster get complimentary admission to the Workshop and the opportunity to network with researchers and industry leaders within this field. Additionally, posters can be printed for FREE by sending to Lorie Mariano at no later than Wednesday, 1/25/2012.
Please add 'Poster for photonics workshop' on the subject of the email.
BEST POSTER AWARDS
The workshop has two Poster sessions. Poster session A on “Photonics and Communications” (Day 1) and poster session B on “Photonics and Biophotonics” (Day 2).
Innovation Center Denmark offers a prize of $200 for each of the Poster sessions. Registered attendees will vote for the winners.
A Research Poster contribution consists of two separate items:
Any Poster contribution must have both items and must be presented in the conference in order to become eligible for a best poster award. The voting will take place at the end of each poster session.

HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR CONTRIBUTION
Email your paper as an attachment to:
Please indicate the Poster Session you want to participate in the subject of the message (e.g., Day 1). Name your file with your last name. Due to limit of the space and time for poster presentation, acceptance is based on the quality of the posters and submission time. Acceptance will be e-mailed by January 22nd. If accepted, you should get back a confirmation message with a Poster number that you should display during your presentation and on the Poster itself. The votes for best research Poster will go to Poster numbers, not to authors.
You will get exactly 3 minutes to introduce your poster using overhead projector sheets (no computer shall be used) and to convince the audience to vote for your Poster (use your poster number).
One additional minute will be reserved for questions. This timing may be adjusted by the organization 5 days before the workshop takes place.
Registering a poster does not register you for the workshop. You have to do it on-line at
