Information for Poster Presenters
Instructions for Abstract Submission
The online abstract submission is now open. The deadline to submit the abstract is 11:59pm on Monday January 21, 2013. Only 1 abstract per person can be accepted due to presentation space constraints. Only abstracts from trainees performing research in COP labs, or enrolled in one of the COP Graduate Programs, will be accepted. If you have any questions, contact Martina Vaskova.
New this year: We have a new poster category! There is a separate $500 innovation/commercialization prize sponsored by the Office of Technology Management.
Abstract should contain: (a) an introductory sentence indicating the purpose of the study; (b) a brief description of experimental procedures; (c) a summary of the data; and (d) a statement of conclusions. Maximum length of the abstract is 300 words. Abstract submission is now closed.
Instructions for Poster Presentations
Posters should be in landscape orientation; there is no mandated size, but please limit the width to 5 feet or less if printing a new poster.
Poster mounting and removal
Please mount posters in the area labeled with your abstract number on Thursday, February 21. Depending on your location, blue tape (for mounting on the wall) or push pins (for poster boards) will be provided. Posters should be removed during the weekend following Research Day, or early Monday morning.
Posters will be judged on Friday morning for the Student Choice Award. Poster authors are invited to select the best presenter and do not need to be at their posters. Posters must be attended on Friday 2-4 pm for the official judging session.
Posters will be judged during the Friday afternoon session, February 22, between 2 pm-4 pm. Each poster will have 3 judges. Poster presenters should be prepared to give 3-5 minute overview of their work to the judges and other viewers, and answer questions from both experts in their field and general scientific audience. Presenters are expected to remain at their posters for the entire session.
