Call for posters

We are still happy to accept poster presentations.  Accepted posters, which may be accompanied by podcast, will be displayed on the VIDM website from April.  To submit a poster, please email info@vidm.org with your poster and a short explanation of its context.  If you wish to include a podcast, please let us know when you send us your poster and we can discuss how best to let us have the audio file.  Such files tend to be quite large, so email may not be the best way to send it to us.

We will continue to accept posters right through April.
