Presentation Guidelines

  1. A student should present the poster.
  2. The presenter should prepare an outline or abstract of the major points of the poster.
  3. The poster should not be read verbatim from the text. Not only are such presentations usually dull, but because of time constraints the author may be cut off by the session chair before reaching the most significant aspects of the presentation.
  4. Oral presentations should represent, on average, a 5-10 minute summary of the poster. Highlights may be given regarding the purpose of the study, description of the sample, methodology, problems, and major findings, conclusions, or recommendations.The amount of time devoted to each highlight will vary according to the author’s evaluation of the importance of each area to the paper.
  5. During the judging session, all presenters must be available at the display to provide a formal, oral presentation (see item #3) of the project to the judges and to answer questions and discuss the contents.
  6. Presenters are advised to prepare a single handout (25 copies recommended) summarizing the major components of the project. Presenters may wish to have a sign-up sheet to record names and addresses of attendees who would like further information, additional copies, etc.
