Poster session

Poster session, 2012 conference

It’s time to start thinking about posters and presentations. Planning for the 2014 annual conference is underway and a busy agenda as been set.

On the agenda again this year are CMC’s fabulous five-in-five presentations from all of CMC’s 44 research projects. This fast-paced format has researchers giving brief overviews of their work using five slides in just five minutes. With most projects wrapping up in June 2014, participants can look forward to hearing exciting results from our investigators.

After the five-in-five presentations, conference participants can learn more about research that has piqued their interest at one of two poster sessions planned for Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon. Because the Tuesday session runs until 7 pm, the Tuesday poster session will feature a buffet dinner.

In addition to the five-in-five presentations, three topical and timely panels will focus on topics relevant to carbon management:

  • LNG/Shale gas/CO2 issues in BC
  • Carbon Politics
  • New Initiatives and Future Directions in Carbon Management.

HQP Travel Subsidies

Travel subsidies have been sent to the accounts of all Round 1 and 2 investigators to support one to two HQP to attend the conference. These funds were provided by the NCE, which generously agreed to support travel for HQP working on NCE-funded research projects. Travel subsidies are not available to support HQP on Round 3 projects since these projects were not funded with NCE money. There should be funds available in project budgets to support HQP to attend the conference.
