- Presently scientists create static, printed, posters -- which are a graphical, written and mathematical representation of their experiments to present at scientific meetings/conferences.
- The 60x48” posters communicate to peers the important work they have done and are usually used just once then rolled up and stored away
- The information inherent in each poster can and should be archived and leveraged again.
-- Digitally render scientific work and archive it to be referenced & cited in perpetuity
-- Enable dynamic presentations with the ability to drill down into methods and data, and include links to citations (PubMed, Google Scholar, Scopus)
-- Provide a permanent URL for each presentation

Cloud computing: dynamically scalable and often virtualized resources are provided as a service over the Internet
Graduate students and postdocs in technical, physical, and medical sciences.
Scientific societies (Society of Neuroscience; Society of Endocrinology, etc., etc., -- there are many, with tens of thousands of members).
Adjectives: Intellectual, smart, often nerdy, often geeky.
But we would want our solution to convey: intellect, smart, clean, science-y, techie, innovative, solid, dependable, clever.
We are looking for an identity, so really more than a logo, but this would be a good start.
Before the end of Sept 09 works for us!
