Guidelines for Poster Presentations (2013-03-08)
The Poster Session will be held in the E. H. Hereford University Center in the Bluebonnet Ballroom. Presenters will be assigned a board designated with a number upon approval of the submitted abstract. Poster assignments are available here.
Posters should be exactly 3 x 4 feet in dimension.
Poster installation is between 7:45 – 11:00 a.m. on the day of ACES. The room will be open throughout the day for viewing by visitors.
Poster judging will occur at the following times.
• Noon to 1:30pm Undergraduate poster judging
• 2:00 to 3:30pm Graduate poster judging
Students presenting posters are required to be in attendance for poster judging during the designated timeframe.
Several judges will visit your poster and discuss your findings with you. The objective of your poster should be to convey your message as efficiently as possible. Distill your work to the most important points and prepare to talk for about 3-5 minutes about your work. It is recommended that you ask your faculty mentor to critique your poster in advance, and have classmates ask questions about your project.
Judges will score presentations based on the Poster Presentation Rubric.
Students are highly encouraged to present their poster to the general public throughout the day. Students who remain throughout the afternoon often find themselves listening to other students' presentations and explaining their posters to visitors, resulting in a lively and stimulating interchange of ideas and information.
Posters may only be removed between 4:00 and 4:30 pm on ACES day.
