Presentation Formats

This year’s conference includes paper and poster presentation formats.  Descriptions and submission guidelines for each format are included below.

  • Paper Presentation
  • Poster Presentation

Information and Instructions For Students Giving Paper Presentations:

  • A paper presentation allows students the opportunity to present their scholarly and creative work to those attending the session to which their presentation is assigned. 
  • Attire should be professional.  Please consult with your faculty mentor if you have questions.
  • Please arrive at your assigned room approximately 15 minutes before the start of your scheduled session, and plan to stay in the session for its entire duration.
  • Please introduce yourself to the faculty session chair, the student moderator and your fellow presenters.
  • All presentation rooms will contain a computer and a projector.  If you plan on giving a multimedia presentation, please take advantage of the 15 minute window between presentation sessions to load your presentation and/or access the information you will need.  Please bring your presentation on a jump drive or be prepared to access it on the internet.
  • Presentations should be no more than 15 minutes total.  It is recommended that you plan for (and practice!) a presentation no longer than 10-12 minutes in length to allow time for questions and answers from the audience at the conclusion of the presentation and/or session.
  • Please consult with your faculty mentor to ensure a high quality presentation.

Information and Instructions for Students Giving Poster Presentations:

  • A poster is a static, visual medium (usually of the paper or board variety) that students use to communicate their research. The difference between poster and paper presentations is that students should let their poster do most of the "talking." The material presented on the poster should convey the essence of their message. However, students should also be present during the designated time to answer questions and provide further details. 
  • Attire should be professional.  Please consult with your faculty mentor if you have questions.
  • Please arrive at the Health Sciences Building Room 314 (Movement Lab) between 8-9am to put up your poster.  Posters must be put up by 9am.  Posters must be taken down between 1-4:30pm.
  • Posters are numbered in the schedule; you should set up your poster at the corresponding number.
    • Odd # posters will be presented at Poster Presentation Session #1 (11:30am-12:15pm).
    • Even # posters will be presented at Poster Presentation Session #2 (12:15-1pm).
  • Please work in close consultation with your faculty mentor to ensure a high quality poster presentation.  Please be prepared to answer questions about your project.
  • Please consult with your faculty mentor to determine poster size and content as dictated by standard practice in your discipline.  Your faculty mentor should be able to direct you to some aids that are appropriate to your field and the scope of your work as well as to resources for printing posters.

Poster Specifications

  • Maximum width of posters is 3 feet.
  • Maximum height of posters is 4 feet.
  • Students must be able to hang their posters on tack-able wall partitions.  Tack-able wall partitions and tacks will be available.

Faculty Session Chairs and Student Moderators

  • Each session will be hosted by a faculty session chair and student moderator.
  • Faculty session chairs will identify student moderators for the session(s) they are hosting.  Faculty session chairs hosting more than one session may identify a different student moderator for each session.
  • The primary role of the faculty session chair will be to assure in advance of the session that all presenters are in attendance and to assist the student moderator in their role. The faculty session chair will also serve as a time keeper to assure that presentations and sessions do not run long.
  • The primary role of the student moderator will be to introduce the presenters, the title of their work and facilitate discussion among the other participants. This is an important role and provides more opportunities for students in the audience to actively participate in the conference.   A student moderator for a session must be identified by the faculty session chair for that session.
