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.
Mini-mountain marathons are long-course score orienteering races over hilly terrain. Finding the best route is an NP-hard
combinatorial optimization problem known as the Orienteering Problem.
This study's objective was about whether top finishers took similar routes, whether speed or route-planning acumen was more important, and how close to optimal route choice was by experienced competitors.
