Call for Posters

The poster session at this year's Austrian Research and Innovation Talk (ARIT,; will take place on Saturday, October 7, 2017, at the ARIT event location Palm Door on Sixth (508 E 6th Street) in Austin, Texas.

We are seeking high-quality research posters from Austrian Scientists and Scholars doing research in North America. The poster session is open to all scientific fields and to all ASciNA members. A designated committee will select the best 12 poster submissions for presentation. Selection criteria include impact, scientific quality, and quality of presentation. This year, the Austrian Marshall Plan Foundation is sponsoring three poster awards (EUR 3,000; EUR 2,000; and 1,000) for winner and runner-ups, respectively.

Accepted posters have to follow the provided ASciNA poster template (4’ x 6’). Note that this is too big for PowerPoint, and thus the template is 4" x 6" and the poster needs to be scaled when printing out. Here is a template of 24" x 36" (half size). Please use this template if scaling from 4" x 6" to 4' x 6' results in bad graphics quality.

The author is required to present the poster during the poster session and opening reception (11:15 am – 4:00 pm). Easels will be provided, but the authors are responsible for bringing their poster to the session. Further, authors need to provide a single summary slide in PowerPoint to be displayed during breaks at ARIT to draw attention to the poster session. Authors are encouraged to register early for ARIT 2017 to apply for travel grants. Please submit your poster as PDF via email to by Friday, July 21, 11:59 pm PDT.

Presenters are encouraged to register early for ARIT 2017.
