Poster Presentations

Because this is a multidisciplinary conference, the conference includes a mix of elements used in conferences across disciplinary norms. Conference participants who have attended discipline specific conferences will most likely see components that are unfamiliar, including presentation types, schedules, and events. This is an intentional part of the experience. If you have any questions about anything that may be unfamiliar, do not hesitate to ask!

There is typically one Poster presentation session during the conference. Posters will be arranged around a large room in an open session to foster discussion and potential collaboration. Conference attendees will be able to walk around the room and stop at each presentation they are interested in. It is recommended that the presenter prepare a 5 - 10 minute talk about their research and be prepared to answer questions from the audience. Presentations are best if made in such a way as to be understood by an academic lay person. 

Posters should be 36" x 48" and are presented on easels. The conference will provide a poster display board with the easels to tack posters to.  Presentations cannot be hung on the walls in the Cunningham Center.

Any students submitting Arts presentations will be included in the Poster session. The conference chair will work with Arts presenters to provide the best method of presenting their materials.

Poster Presenters should:

    • Register to attend the Graduate Research Conference by the registration deadline.
    • Prepare a short presentation of the poster for discussion with audience.
      • Refrain from indulging in extensive discussion of methods, statistics, and/or literature.
    • Have available, as appropriate, some copies of the paper/research to hand out to interested audience members after the talk.
    • Arrive at poster presentation area early to set up.
      • Presenter is responsible for bringing foam board or other material to affix to poster so that it can be displayed on an easel unless instructed otherwise.
    • Accept the comments of the audience as constructive.
    • Refrain from indulging in ideological discussions of policy with the audience.
