Short background: So back in March, I noticed lots of academic conferences were cancelling and I was very concerned about missing all the poster sessions. I threw together a quick site to allow people a place to share without thinking many people would be interested...
If you're not familiar with them, Poster sessions are when grad students and researchers share the progress they've made with others in their area of study. It's a really good way for students to find jobs in industry, researchers to find new collaborators, or be inspired to study your own topic in a new way.
Turns out, a LOT of people were interested! I received so many emails I couldn't really keep up at the time. I had a few conversations with folks and was able to really hone the concept for a self-service platform, which I built and launched at the end of July!
I'm still working on getting the concept across clearly, and really need to do a better job on the signup funnel. But each time I improve the site I get more interest and more relevant questions... I would love any sort of feedback or critiques the IH community could share:
