  • Students should work with their faculty mentors to print their posters. Most posters are 36" x 48". However, this size is not required.  Other sizes and orientations are allowed as long as they will fit within this same area. 

oral presentations

  • Each presenter will be allotted 15 minutes for their presentation, including Q&A. Moderators will time presentations and cue presenters when there are 2 minutes and 1 minute left in their allotted time.
