Guidelines for Presenters

Oral Presentations

Presentations will be limited to 15 minutes. We recommend a presentation length of 12-13 minutes, allowing 2-3 minutes for questions. The preferred format is Microsoft PowerPoint 2007 or 2010.

The oral sessions will be held on Friday, February 21. A moderator will be on hand to introduce each speaker and keep each session on schedule. Please meet with the moderator in your assigned room 10-15 minutes before the start of your session

Presenters should submit a copy of their PowerPoint presentation to by 12 pm on Wednesday, February 19. As a backup, please bring a USB flash drive with your presentation to the symposium as well.

Poster Presentations

Posters are limited to a board 4 feet high by 6 feet wide. We recommend a poster size of about 3 feet high by 4 feet wide. Click here for a helpful tutorial on creating posters.

The poster session will be held on Friday, February 21 from 1:30-3:30 pm. During the poster session, presenters are expected to stand with their poster to address questions from viewers and judges. However, posters should be on display throughout the day.

Presenters will set up their own posters in Room 382 (across from the North Ballroom) at the Lory Student Center. Posters may be set up at anytime on Friday, starting at 8:00 am. The posters must be taken down by 5:00 pm.
