Philipp Grunewald has volunteered to organize a poster session for the 2013 Seattle workshop. This is a great way for academics and practitioners to have a set, concrete contribution to the meeting, and in a format that is sharable online and offline, extending the reach of our gathering. Here is the information Philipp has put together:

If you are interested in presenting some of your work/research, the workshop includes a poster stream. Posters are invited from everyone who is attending or interested in attending (F2F or online); practitioners and academics alike.

Topics Thematically, posters can touch on anything you feel is relevant and related to the overall idea of the workshop. (See http://wiki.km4dev.org/KM4Dev_2013_workshop ). It would be great to see some posters discussing emerging KM tools, M&E approaches of KM, and the mainstreaming of KM in development organisations; but you are by no means restricted to this.

Logistics The posters will be displayed in the convening space for the time of the workshop and every presenter will have the opportunity to give a 5 minute presentation of their poster. Please send either a first draft of the poster or a 300 word description to p.grunewald@lboro.ac.uk by the 21st June 2013. Feedback will be given in a timely manner and a digital version of the finalised posters is due by the 17th July 2013. Please bring a printout of the poster to display during the workshop. Size of the printout: since there are various paper size systems in use around the globe we are quite flexible regarding the size. To have some uniformity ANSI C or A2 are a good guideline; they are fairly big. If those two standard sizes are not to your convenience aim for something in this area: width ~ 425mm & height ~ 570mm.
