Individual Oral Presentations

Each oral presentation is allotted 10 minutes, plus three minutes for questions. Each room will be equipped with computers and projectors. Oral presentations are best for projects that do not involve data collection (e.g., English papers, theoretical papers).

Poster Presentations

Each person will be allotted a 4′ wide by 3′ high wall space. Tacks will be provided. You will be expected to remain with your poster for the entire length of your session. Follow poster guidelines when preparing your poster.  We have provided a PowerPoint Template for your use.  Posters are best suited for empirical projects, that is, projects that involved the collection and analyses of data.

Paper Symposium


Paper symposiums are centered on a particular theme. Symposiums should include 3 to 5 papers and a moderator.  An abstract of the theme of symposium should be submitted including purpose of symposium, title of symposium, titles of all papers and the name of moderator. In addition, each paper within the symposium should submit its own abstract. Individual paper submission should include title of the paper and title of symposium in the Title Box.
