Oral, Performance, and Visual Presentations
Students doing oral, performance, and visual presentations should be present in their presentation space at least 10 minutes prior to their session to upload any digital content onto the presentation computer desktop.
Note that all computers in our presentation rooms are PCs; please prepare file types accordingly and bring them on a flash drive to speed up file transfer. We also encourage you to back up your files online/in email. When you arrive, please introduce yourself to the panel moderator.
Students presenting in Poster sessions should plan to have their poster in place at least 30 minutes prior to the poster session beginning. A more specific timeline of will be available once the final schedule is released.
Students may submit four types of presentations for consideration at GURC:
1. Oral presentations
Oral presentations can be on any research topic. Oral presentations should be no more than 12-15 minutes long. 5 minutes will be provided for questions from the audience. GURC is multi-disciplinary, so it is important to remember that your audience may not know your discipline as well as you do. Here are some tips on doing great presentations from TED.
2. Poster presentations
Poster presentations may also be on any research topic. Posters should be no larger than 3 feet by 4 feet. Poster presenters will be provided with ways to affix their posters to a display. You are responsible for putting up and taking down your own poster. Presenters should be available during the entirety of the poster session to discuss their research. Each poster session will be roughly an hour long. This site from North Carolina State University has tips on preparing a poster session.
3. Performance presentations
Performance presentations may include drama, dance, music, or any other kind of live performance. Performance presentations should be no more than 12-15 minutes long. 5 minutes will be provided for questions from the audience.
