Calling all students, graduate and undergraduate, in the College of Geosciences to participate in Geosciences Student Research Showcase.
This year we are continuing our College-level research showcase to provide opportunities for students to build visual and oral communication skills, and to show off innovative student research in a local venue.
Students, individually or in teams, will display and explain their research and findings through posters. Any and all themes and aspects of research are welcomed. For students who have participated in the annual Geological Society of America meeting, or who will participate in the American Geophysical Union or American Meterological Society meetings, this is a prime opportunity to highlight research presented at those international meetings.
This is not a competition, but faculty and student volunteers will be available to discuss your work and offer constructive suggestions. We look forward to seeing the great research that is taking place across the College.
Guidelines for Poster Presentations
These guidelines follow the standards for most international research conferences in the Geosciences.
All posters should include, as appropriate, the elements of 1) abstract; 2) introduction; 3) objective(s); 4) methodologies; 5) results; 6) discussion and 7) conclusions.
Poster dimensions should not exceed four feet in height by six feet in length (1.2 meters by 1.8 meters). Smaller posters or pieced posters are acceptable. All posters will be displayed on the northeast lobby walls in O&M for the entire day.
Poster presentations will be divided into two hour sessions on the day of the event:
10:30 to 12:30 or 2:00 to 4:00
Please plan on having your poster up and ready to go at least 10 minutes prior to your presentation time.
Please sign up for your preferred time when you submit your poster title and abstract (below)
