The Virtual Poster Session effort focuses on bringing the concept of the poster presentation beyond the four walls of the conference hall, and creates an online database of polar research poster publications. This project allows members with similar goals and interests to exchange information and assures a platform for the exchange of polar and cryospheric research, policy, and education activities that are shaping the future of polar research.
