Use of QR Codes

A QR code is a two-dimensional bar code that can be used to link a physical poster with digital content or interaction. A QR code be easily generated with freely available tools and printed on the poster in a discrete location such as one of the corners. Attendees can use software on their mobile or other comptaible device to access the content that has been associated with the QR code. For example, an author may choose to associate media content such as a project video or to solicit feedback by linking to a Web page or blog for the project. Many QR code generators are freely available on the Web, e.g., http://qrcode.kaywa.com/.

Lost-and-found Posters

Posters that will not be collected by their authors will be kept until Thursday 6pm after the conference. Details will be available during the conference.
