Here’s a new piece of technology that we just saw someone use on a poster– the QR code. It works like this-
1. You go to QuickQR.com or a similar site
2. You put in the URL that you want someone to visit
3. You get a PNG graphic file that when scanned by someone’s smart phone will take them to that web site
4. You put the png image in your poster.
What’s cool is that you can have the code point to your bio page (they can contact you about a job) or page where your poster is uploaded (no more handouts required). Or, whatever your imagination allows!
