LSI – CALL FOR STUDENT POSTERS for 2015 GET Conference

LSI – CALL FOR STUDENT POSTERS for 2015 GET Conference

Great opportunity for law students! Interested students should respond by Friday, May 1.
Call for Posters for LSI’s GET Conference:

 

The Third Annual Conference on Governance of Emerging Technologies: Law, Policy & Ethics (GET) will be held at the Scottsdale Resort & Conference Center on May 26-28, 2015. The conference will again include a reception that features student posters – an incredible opportunity for students to display their work, network, and attend the entire Conference free of charge. But, we will only hold the poster reception if there are enough students interested.

 

The poster session and reception will be held on Wednesday, May 27 from 6:00-7:00 pm.

 

If you might be interested in presenting a poster, please e-mail Lauren.Burkhart@asu.edu by Friday, May 1. Expressing interest is not a commitment to present, and your poster does not have to be complete– we only need to secure our number of student presenters to move forward with planning the session.

 

Haven’t presented a poster before? Not sure what that would entail? It’s simple! The purpose of the poster is to summarize a legal issue at the intersection of law, policy, science, technology, and/or ethics, and to depict the most interest points from your research and analysis. You can create your entire poster on a PowerPoint slide that you can then print out anywhere. For ASU Law’s students, the Center for Law, Science & Innovation will cover your printing costs through ASU Printing services. Templates and examples will be provided for all interested students.

 

*Also note that your poster does not have to represent a finished article – you can present on a topic you’ve already written on, jump start a new work in progress, use it as part of an independent study work product (pending Professor approval), or cover a topic you are interested in but don’t intend to write a full article about.

While not as common in law, poster presentations are a common part of many other graduate programs and academic contexts. This is an extremely valuable opportunity to share your work with a renowned group of experts in diverse areas of law, science, technology, and governance that will be in attendance at GET.
