The goal of the poster session is to provide an opportunity for an informal discussion of one’s research with conference attendees.

Who can present at GHCI?
Only one author (women) of each accepted proposal is eligible to present their idea at GHCI 18. The presentation format during the actual session will be in the form of a poster display that conveys the idea in their initial proposal. Multiple individuals cannot present the same poster. The author presenting at GHCI will be given a complimentary conference pass to present their work at the Poster Session. Special grants (includes travel and accommodation) will be available to selected students as a part of the Student Scholarships offered. Those who would like to avail the special grant will have to apply for the Student Scholarships, the applications for which will open shortly.
