Revolution - motion of any figure [or attendee] around a center
or axis AND a fundamental change in the way of thinking about
or visualizing something: a change of paradigm. The UPA Poster
Revolution is a set of spark plugs to get your imagine-engine
going. At the UPA Poster Revolution, attendees will get an in-depth
presentation of the UPA conference posters by the poster presenters,
as well as the opportunity to discuss ideas with the presenters.
During this time, attendees will gather into groups around the
posters that interest them most. Each presenter will then be given
a set amount of time to talk about his or her poster, plus a few
minutes of questions and answers. At the end of the timeslot,
attendees will be directed to the next poster. After one revolution
around the room, attendees may go back to any of the posters that
intrigued or infuriated them and discuss with or argue about them
with the presenters.
So come to the UPA Poster Revolution to get inspired, get informed,
or just to find out what is happening in the mainstream and cutting
edge of the usability profession. It will be a time to get much
more comprehensive information about each poster than would be
possible at the opening reception or the two 15 minute mini-sessions.
Just one revolution and you will definitely not end up where you
began, at least as far as knowledge and viewpoint.
The Poster Revolution takes place during one of the Presentation
sessions, and is an optional activity for poster presenters.
