I think, that it is great opportunity to show results from Therion to cavers world.

They are looking for entries to next categories:

	• Electronic Displays
Electronic displays of maps are welcome, as long as the entrant supplies the necessary equipment and is entirely responsible for its set up and security. Such maps should be on display through convention day and evening hours from Monday to Friday noon. Stands or tables for display equipment must be supplied or arranged for by the entrant.

	• Web Maps 
Web based maps will be considered for entry by the judges. Innovation in this media is welcome and encouraged.

Criteria specific to web based maps have not yet been developed for this salon, but it is likely that the presentation should include features that use the web format to advantage. A plain PDF of a wall map as viewed on a laptop is unlikely to be well received.

We will post the web address of the map in the salon area (include the URL on your entry form) or feel free to create your own poster to draw an audience. Maybe show a barcode link for smartphones.

The map will be reviewed by judges using a 17-inch laptop (1920 x 1080 resolution), Windows 7, Internet Explorer 8, a three-button (center scroll wheel) wireless mouse, and the local WIFI.

	• Models 
Models or other 3D maps are welcome. Stands or tables for models, and any special lighting, must be supplied by the entrant.
