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.
Real-time gravitational wave searches are plagued by non-stationary noise. The first a binary neutron star merger - had a delayed alert because we had to deal with data quality issues. We use machine learning to classify noise in real-time in based on auxiliary information like seismometers, magnetometers, etc.
