29th Annual Research Forum
Deadline: April 1, 2021
Posters must be submitted by April 1, 2021, 5:00 PM. To submit your poster use the online form on this page.
Prepare a 1-5 minute audio talk that briefly reviews the highlights of your work, and complements the information on your poster. You can write out the text. Practice reading it slowly and clearly. The submission form will prompt you to narrate when you submit your poster or you can do it later using your mobile device. If you make a mistake while reading, you can stop your narration and start over as many times as needed until you are happy with the results.
Consider the following:
> What is the topic?
> What did you find?
> Why is it important?
Describe the work you have done in a succinct manner using different words (do not read your poster).
What you will need to submit your poster:
> A good quality PDF
Save your poster document in PDF format and confirm that it looks good, and everything is legible when viewing at 100% magnification on your screen. It is preferred that your poster is in Landscape orientation for better viewing.
> Describe your topic
Write a short description of your poster topic (60 characters max.).
> Poster Abstract
When you submit your poster, you will be asked to add your poster's abstract. If you don't have an abstract, you can use the summary or the background.
> Prepare your narration
(See narration tab for guidance).
