  • Those selected for oral presentations were notified on Friday, March 11th of the selection.  Oral presentations will be 10-minutes long, with a 3-minute Q&A and 2-minute set-up times.  Presenters will not be allowed to exceed their presentation time.  Presenters are expected to bring a Power Point presentation on a removable (USB) drive on the day of the presentation.
  • To view your assigned session time and location, please visit the Program Details page and search for your presentation or name via the search box. Please be aware that this year, on the Hammond campus, poster and oral presentations will be held in different buildings.
  • Out of respect for other presenters, we ask all oral presentation participants to remain in the room for the entire 1.5-hour session.
  • In addition to this presentation format, you are encouraged to present a poster.


  • Posters will be displayed on easels as illustrated below. Hard-mounted, flat presentation boards not exceeding 48in (W) x 36 in (H) are recommended. If you have a paper poster, hard boards will be available at the event for temporary mounting.
  • Please arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the poster presentation time to set-up the poster.
  • Poster spaces are not assigned. Faculty and students will be able to select the space that best meets their need, based on the first come, first serve basis.
  • For those who indicated during the registration process that they have additional items to display, such as books and other artifacts, there will be a limited number of tables available. We recommend that you arrive at least 15 minutes prior to the presentation session to set up.
