What should I bring the day of the symposium?
If you are scheduled to present a poster, bring your poster on a mounted stand alone board (3'X4' tri-fold poster board recommended). A display table will be provided for you.
Can I have my poster printed and who do I contact?
Students presenting their Honors thesis or projects funded by the Office of Undergraduate Research can have their posters printed on 3' paper. It is recommended you create one slide in PowerPoint with 3' dimension, white background and limited use of color. If you have photos or other images, make sure they are high resolution images to avoid problems when printing. Save the final version as a pdf. Contact Jennifer Vallin (email@example.com) in the Honors office for Honors thesis printing and Deborah Burlison (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the OUR for OUR funded projects. If you have the OUR print your poster, please include the OUR logo on your poster.
What should I wear for the symposium?
The dress for the symposium is business casual (women: dress, skirt or dressy pants suit, men: shirt with tie, dress pants).
I'm giving either an oral presentation or a performance. Who should I contact for scheduling a time?
When you send in your abstract, please indicate if you need a performance or presentation time. Someone from the OUR office will contact you to see what you need the day of the symposium (i.e. microphone, podium, stage, etc). It is recommended you do a check of the AV equipment the day before the symposium.
What happens if I send in my abstract but I am not able to attend the symposium?
If you are unable to attend the symposium during the scheduled time, please contact the OUR as soon as possible. If you have co-authors, try to arrange for someone else to present the project.
