248 • 2018 ASHA CONVENTION PROGRAM BOOK As of July 31, 2018 Poster/ePoster Sessions CC, HALL C Poster Sessions combine a verbal presentation with a visual display to efficiently communicate scientific ideas. During these presentations, viewers guide themselves through a poster’s basics, while the presenter explains, clarifies, and discusses key elements of the work and answers questions. A poster presentation is less formal and more interactive than an Oral Seminar. Be on the lookout in the Poster Hall for Meritorious Posters! ePoster Sessions are similar to traditional poster presentations but utilize a large monitor to display the poster digitally. The use of technology allows presenters to convey information through embedded multimedia content that would not be possible with a printed poster. ePoster presentations have been specially selected for this format by the Convention Program Committee and highlight revolutionary or evolutionary projects or practices in our professions. Meritorious Posters The Meritorious Poster recognition is for submissions judged by the Convention Program Committee to be exceptional. These posters received the highest ratings from Topic Committee reviewers across both submission categories of professional education and research. Each Topic Committee has the option of recommending one or two top-rated posters for this special distinction. The Meritorious Posters are noted in the Convention Program Book with a ribbon icon. Be on the lookout in the Poster Hall for Meritorious Posters! Earning CEUs at Poster/ePoster Presentations Although posters may be viewed at any time throughout day, CEUs may only be claimed for posters viewed during the 90-minute published session time when the authors are required to be present to discuss their work. Each poster counts for 15 minutes of credit, and a maximum of six Poster Sessions may be claimed for credit in each 90-minute time block. Credit may also be claimed for posters viewed in between attending Oral Seminars, provided the visit occurs during the 90-minute period when the author is present. Presenters may claim 15 minutes of credit for their own session, earning the same amount of credit as participants.
