Poster sessions are a combination of text and graphics in a poster format based on a specific theme in higher education. The format allows participants to network and browse through the poster board area, study the information and discuss it with speakers during a 90-minute time slot.

For the 2016 EAIE Conference in Liverpool, there are two themes:

  • Innovation in higher education (standard posters)
  • New technologies in social media (e-posters).

All poster and e-poster session submissions will be assessed on the following criteria:

  • Quality of content
  • Relevance to the field
  • Innovativeness 

Innovation in higher education

Has your institution just come across the next big thing in higher education? Our conference participants want to hear about it! Connect with participants and present your original ideas and innovations in research, as well as new techniques or technologies being used to facilitate the internationalisation of higher education, in poster format. Speakers should work with graphic designers to produce an interesting and enticing poster that inspires participants to discuss it with the presenter and those around them.

E-posters: new technologies in social media

Are you eager to show how your institution uses new technology for the best results? Connect digitally with conference participants through an e-poster session. Show innovative ideas and new techniques or technologies that are being used to facilitate the internationalisation of higher education. Speakers should use their own laptops to present and also produce a standard printed poster for more information.

When are they held?
14–16 September 2016
