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.
The Big Weather Web aims to remove barriers for scientific communities to adopt new technologies vital for data-intensive science. The project is using a large ensemble distributed over 7 universities as a driving problem to assemble a common storage, linking, and cataloging infrastructure, using software container technologies for easy deployment and reproducibility.
