Making Your Institutional Poster

Each year at the awards banquet, one photograph of the participants of each institution are taken so they can be displayed on the ECSC website.
In the past, posters are prepared at the banquet.
Participants for 2019 are encouraged to make their one poster prior to the conference.
In this way, a poster that best represents each institution can be presented in the photograph.
Materials for making a poster at the banquet will not be available for April 2019.
A limited amount of materials will be available during the continental breakfast for institutions that did not make a poster prior to the conference.

Bus parking for ECSC 2019

This situation applies to institutions that hire a bus company
(1) to bring participants to the conference in the morning and
(2) needs parking until the evening after the conference/banquet is completed.

Buses that fit the above category cannot park in the parking garage and must be parked at a separate location. The institutional representative of such institutions must contact
Dr. Lance S. Evans to make that arrangement at

Prior to the day of the conference: name of the bus company, approximate time of arrival and approximate time of departure will be required.

On the conference day, information regarding the driver and any additional personal of the bus company, and the license plate number will be required.
A photocopy of the registration of the bus may be required.
