Present Anything You Want Directly from Your Laptop!

You can choose this dynamic and interactive form of presenting your science via the online abstracts submission screen.


  • One horizontal, freestanding 8-foot × 4-foot display board along with Velcro for hanging a poster;
  • A monitor (~40 to 46 inch) on a 6-foot × 30-inch table;
  • Electricity for your laptop (bring your own laptop); and
  • A VGA cable along with sound.
    Mac Users:
    Bring your own white dongle.
Digital Poster

The leaders of the following topical sessions encourage you to submit a digital poster abstract. The submission fee of US$80 will help offset equipment costs.

T95. Visualizations in Geology: Advancing the Science Using Digital Tools (Digital Posters).
Geologic science using complicated visualization or modeling approaches is difficult to present using standard poster formats. This session allows geologic research to be communicated in a digital poster session format.
Cosponsor: GSA Hydrogeology Division
Advocates: Todd Halihan, Oklahoma State University; Daniel A. Lao Davila, Oklahoma State University; Priyank Jaiswal, Oklahoma State University
T110. Techniques for Measuring Shoreline Change (Digital Posters).
This session will explore the state of the science of shoreline change measurement and where we should be heading in terms of equipment, data gathering techniques, and methods of analysis.
Cosponsor: GSA Quaternary Geology and Geomorphology Division
Advocate: Chester W. Jackson, Georgia Southern University
T149. Virtual Reality in Geoscience Education (Digital Posters).
This session covers virtual reality in formal and informal geoscience education at all levels: Google Earth, OmniGlobe, LiDAR, GigaPan, full-dome digital planetaria, caves, and resources for handheld devices, such as iPads and smart phones.
Cosponsors: GSA Geoscience Education Division; GSA Structural Geology and Tectonics Division; GSA Geoinformatics Division; GSA Planetary Geology Division; National Association of Geoscience Teachers; Google Inc.; Oxford University Press; Minnesota Planetarium Society
Advocates: Declan G. De Paor, , Old Dominion University; Steven J. Whitmeyer, , James Madison University; John E. Bailey, , University of Alaska–Fairbanks.
Note: Please contact the session chairs BEFORE submitting an abstract to session T149.
T184. The 21st Century Geoscience Classroom: Creating Learner-Centered Environments for Undergraduates (Digital Posters).
This session focuses on the innovative ways that instructors are using technology (Google Earth, gigapixel imagery, GIS, Web 2.0 tools, etc.) to create interactive environments that promote learning through experience rather than memorization.
Cosponsors: National Association of Geoscience Teachers
Advocates: Candace L. Kairies Beatty, William Lee Beatty, Jennifer L. Piatek
