Presentation Guidelines and Workshops

Information about Poster Presentations

The poster presentation is traditionally used by engineers, natural scientists, and some social scientists. Each poster will be critiqued by judges comprised of faculty, community leaders, and graduate students.

**Please note: the poster, including any borders, attachments, or other associated elements, may not be larger than 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide.**

  • Poster presentations will be in the Grand Hall, inside the RMC.

Presentation Preparation Workshops

To help all of our participants give their best possible presentations, we've prepared a number of resources. Please reference our brief guides about poster and oral presentations. Additionally, in conjunction with the Center for Academic and Professional Communication (CAPC), we'll be hosting presentation information sessions tailored to each medium of presentation. At these sessions, you will receive general guidelines on presentation creation and research presentation and will have the opportunity to receive feedback on your particular needs.
