We will have ePoster Boards at WAFL 14. This means that there is no need for you to print your posters. Moreover, it is possible to use up to 5 slides so that you do not have to squeeze in everything on one page. We ask you to bring your poster on a flash drive. Acceptable file types are the following: ppt, pptm, pptx, pdf or prezi. The size of the poster boards is 40.97 inches by 23.04 inches. Presentation slides should be set to this size. Layout should always be in landscape orientation. Font size should be at least 28 points, font type should be Arial/ Calibri/ Times New Roman.
You can find further information about ePosters under the following links. We recommend that everyone who has not used an ePoster Board before read this information. Note that technical assistance will be provided throughout the poster sessions.
Lightning talks: we ask poster presenters to prepare a lightning talk for their poster. WAFL 14 will include a four-minute-long lightning talk for each poster. Presenters can use slides for their lightning talks. Presenters will give their talks one after the other; the lightning talks will then be immediately followed by the presentation of the posters. The aim of lightning talks is to present a topic in a concise and clear manner to grab the attention of the audience and to make posters a more significant part of the conference.
Talks last 20min, followed by 10min of discussion.
Proceedings: All authors whose abstracts were accepted for talks or poster presentations will be invited to submit the corresponding paper to the WAFL 14 proceedings. The contributions will be published by MITWPL (MIT Working Papers in Linguistics). Please check back for more information.
