There are two venues for presentation of the papers, the general technical session and the poster session.

General Technical Sessions
These sessions consist of a presenter presenting his or her work to the assembled group of thermographers. A PowerPoint presentation is usually utilized along with a 20-25 minute speech by the author. Consider this session if you are comfortable with public speaking in front of a large audience.

Poster Session
A poster involves showing your work to people in one large room simultaneously with other presenters. As viewers walk by, your poster quickly and efficiently communicates your work. Unlike the fast pace of verbal presentation (with PowerPoint), a Poster Session allows viewers to study and restudy your information and discuss it with you one-on-one. You may want to give short presentations on your work every ten or fifteen minutes. The InfraMation poster sessions run about 2 hours. Consider the poster session if you prefer to present your material to small groups of people.
