2024 Presentation Requirements

Oral presentations

Podium presentations will be delivered using PowerPoint or Adobe PDF. The time limit is 10 minutes for oral presentations, followed by 2 to 3 minutes for questions and answers. There are no requirements for the format and number of slides. Presenters are to bring a copy of their presentation to the Melton Student Center assigned room on a USB flash drive.

Poster presentations

Posters may not exceed 40” x 30”. Posters will be affixed to foam board that will be provided for you. You may use either a vertical or horizontal orientation. (You do NOT have to mount your poster prior to the Student Symposium). The poster title should match the abstract title. Poster font should be large enough to easily read from a distance of 1 meter. Illustrations (graphs, pictures, figures, tables) should be large enough for easy observation and contain brief captions, if appropriate. Posters will be displayed on March 26 in the Melton Student Center ballroom. Presenters should bring their posters to the ballroom for set up 10 minutes before their designated viewing time and plan to remain with their posters for their entire poster session to allow for judging. Once the session concludes, all posters should be taken down to allow for the next session.
