Now is the time to submit ideas for the Costume Design & Technology Commission's Poster Session for the 2015 Annual Conference & Stage Expo in Cincinnati. The deadline to submit abstracts is November 15.

Poster Sessions give an opportunity for designers, technicians, educators, and students share information that is not well known or of their own invention. A new solution to an old problem, a new problem and its solution, a classroom or management technique, or the results of research are great things to submit to present at the Cincinnati 2015 Conference & Stage Expo. Tips and techniques about costumes, hair, and make-up from designers, technicians, teachers, and students are welcome. More information on the process is available here.

Submissions are blind juried by the CD&T Commission Poster Selection Committee. Ideas must be presented in the form of an abstract, no more than 200 words, by November 15.Selected posters are due for review on February 9. Following presentation at the conference, posters will be published in the USITT Digital Archive. Instructions for submitting a proposal are here.

Poster presentations are widely accepted as meeting the requirements for scholarly publication. Once accepted, participants are considered conference presenters and may gain access to funding from their institutions.

Questions can be directed to Jeffrey Lieder, lieder@bard.org.
