Presentation Guidelines for Oral and Poster

All participants of the Research Symposium are strongly encouraged to share this and any scheduled presentation information with your advisors and co-presenter(s).

As a participant, check the final Symposium Presentation Schedule for any last minute updates by visiting, www.tnstate.edu/researchsymposium.

 

POSTER SESSION INFORMATION

Each author, participant, and advisor will be notified, in writing, of the scheduled oral presentation.  This notification will be delivered to all e-mail addresses included with the abstract submission.  It will include the Presentation ID, the Category in which the abstract was placed, the date, time, location of the presentation, and other pertinent information.

 

Poster Setup

  • Tuesday, April 3, 2018 beginning at 9:30 AM

 

Poser Size

Each project is allotted space on a professional poster board that is backed with fabric and the space will only accommodate a 42” x 42” poster.  A smaller poster may be acceptable, but a poster which is larger than the size of the 42” x 42” presentation space provided will not hang properly and will be difficult to read. No exceptions can be made, so plan accordingly.

 

Competition and Poster Judging

All student posters, graduate and undergraduate, are part of the competition.

Posters will be judged for organization and creativity, organization of content, technical procedures employed (when applicable), oral delivery, knowledge of material, clarity of artwork (charts, graphs, images), appearance of poster, and overall presentation.  See Judging and Evaluation of Presentations (www.tnstate.edu/researchsymposium) for more information.

Judging for Poster Presentations:  

  • Graduate:  Thursday, April 5, 2018 beginning at 9:00 AM and lasting until 12:00 PM
  • Undergraduate:  Thursday, April 5, 2018 beginning at 1:00 PM and lasting until 4:00 PM

Presenters must be present at the designated judging period in order to be evaluated and considered eligible for the student poster competition.

All posters must be removed by 4:30 PM on Thursday, April 5, 2018.    RSP will not be responsible for any posters left after 4:30 P.M.

 

ORAL SESSION

Each author, participant, and advisor will be notified, in writing, of the scheduled oral presentation.  This notification will be delivered to all e-mail addresses included with the abstract submission.  It will include the Presentation ID, the Session in which the abstract was placed, the date, time, location of the presentation, and other pertinent information.
