This year it was a BYOD Poster Session – Bring Your Own Desserts. Going virtual did not stop us from mingling over posters and having mini-presentations, but we did miss the great assortment of desserts we usually have!
Our virtual poster session allowed attendees to visit breakout rooms on their own and meet with the various presenters.
Communication Awards winners were also available to talk about their winning entries. It was great to learn about the Dragons and Dungeons Security Awareness campaign from University of Illinois Chicago, which won the General Service Campaign materials. You can check out their award winning campaign here https://it.uic.edu/security/awareness/national-cyber-security-awareness-month-ncasm/. Also available for discussion were winning team members from Texas A&M who won for both Student Created Materials – their 2020 Computer Lab Signage Campaign and for best Computing Newsletter for their 2019 annual report which can be viewed at https://it.tamu.edu/annualreport-2019/index.php.
Finally, we have our poster presentations. Two of these presentations focused on the rapid deployment of web conferencing services during the pandemic response. With little to no budget, each was able to ramp up services in a short time to allow continued activities for remote learning.
Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology (TUAT) was one such presentation:
Design and Implementation of the Cisco Webex System based on self-service sign-up using G Suite for rapid deployment (View Poster)
The other was from Kyoto Institute of Technology:

Kyoto Institute of Technology also offered a poster presentation about a collaborate project with their high school to implement shared learning experiences over high speed internet.
