Collaborative Solutions Showcase

The Collaborative Solutions Showcase is a platform designed to encourage meaningful discussions, exchange of ideas, and collaborative problem-solving among meeting attendees.  It is intended to foster the interchange of knowledge and promote networking.

Participants will present a poster that describes any problem or question you would like to invite ASPIRE attendees to comment on in order to help you advance your work.  Problems can be industry oriented or research oriented.  Attendees will offer suggestions by writing on index cards that they will pin to your board.  You do not need to attend your poster at any time. 

Submission Site

Interactive Poster Displays

  • Posters will be arranged in a designated area in two sessions: Tuesday morning to Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. and Wednesday at 12:00 p.m. to Thursday afternoon. Presenters will indicate their session preference upon submission
  • Each poster should include a clear title, information about the problem or question you would like solved and any relevant information (e.g. physical/environmental constraints, the population, etc.). Pictures and figures are encouraged to help attendees better understand the problem and situation. 
  • Your poster may be up to 42” wide by 42” tall. One poster will be placed per board, with the other half of the board dedicated space for attendees to provide thoughts and solutions.
  • We will provide markers, index cards, thumbtacks and pens for attendees to contribute their thoughts. At the end of your session, you will take all index cards with you.
  • On-site volunteers will monitor posts to ensure they are not offensive, off topic, etc

Guidelines for Participants

  • We encourage participants to walk around, engage with posters, and provide constructive feedback but this is not required
  • Commenters may, at their option, include their contact information on their comment card. Ideally, this will help poster authors and commenters expand their networks
  • Emphasize the importance of positive and respectful communication
