Poster sessions are particularly prominent at academic conferences. Posters are usually one frame of a powerpoint (or similar) presentation and are represented at full resolution to make them zoomable.
New EASA FTL (European Aviation Safety Agency flight time limitations) rules came into force February 2016 in order to protect airline crew against fatigue.
