Poster Session

Linked Pasts 6, University of London and British Library, December 2-16, 2020

Poster Session


The Linked Pasts 6 poster session and symposium social event will take place on Friday December 4, 2020 from 14:00–16:30 UTC. The session will be held in the platform, a virtual space that runs in your browser, and in which users can wander, gather into groups for video or chat, listen to presentations and announcements, and explore the event. All registered participants in the Linked Pasts symposium (register here) will receive a link and password to join this space.




At the beginning of the session there will be a round of lightning introductions (maximum 1 minute) from each poster presenter. We will then have two hours to explore the virtual poster hall. Each poster board will have two presenters waiting nearby. You can approach any presenter (or anyone else in the hall) and start a conversation, join a group, see their shared screen/poster, or listen to their presentation.
