***GUIDELINES***

POSTER PRESENTATIONS

  • Please prepare your poster to fit within a maximum 3’ x 4’ poster frame. The boards are horizontal (i.e. 3H’ x 4W’).
  • You may install your poster beginning at 11am on February 21, 2020 in the Assembly Hall of the Rackham Building. Please put them up by 1pm. Conference volunteers will indicate the appropriate location for your poster upon registration. The Poster Reception is from 5:00–7:00pm, with Poster Lightning Talks from 5:00–5:30pm.
  • Remember, the purpose of this conference is to communicate with colleagues from different disciplines, backgrounds, and career stages. Please prepare your poster accordingly. Avoid undefined jargon and difficult-to-interpret figures. Be sure to share the implications of your research beyond your field or subfield.

LIGHTNING PRESENTATIONS (5 minute oral presentation)

  • Please prepare your remarks to fit within the 5 minute window allocated to your talk. Please do not prepare a slideshow designed for a longer talk for your short lightning presentation. Too many slides will distract your audience from the messages we are excited for you to share.
  • Your 5 minutes may be better spent giving an overview of your research interests or opportunities for collaboration rather than trying to get through everything in the abstract you submitted. Changing your focus to make best use of your allotted time is accepted and encouraged.
  • The Conference Program Committee will provide PCs and projectors in the presentation rooms. Powerpoint, PDF, and Google Slides are available but not Apple Keynote or other platforms.
