This year, the Graduate Student Association (GSA) will be sponsoring a poster competition with a $500 first prize. This competition is open to any grad students looking for a challenge. Students interested in participating should follow the poster session guidelines and expect to be judged at a professional level. To participate, register for the SRS and choose "Graduate Student Poster Competition" from the poster session preferences menu.

All students wishing to present in the Poster Sessions must attend a consultation with the Writing and Communication Lab, located in Skeen Library. The WCL will assist students in printing their posters.

How will I know if I'm selected to present?

All applicants will be notified through email of your selection. The email will also include your assigned Poster Session. 

How are Poster Session assignments determined?

Assignments are based on registration date. You will get priority for sessions based on when you registered.

What if I can't make it to my assigned Poster Session?

If you know you won't be able to attend your assigned poster sessions, email us at ASAP so we can work out other arrangements. Register early so you have a good chance of getting the session you want!

How will I be evaluated for my poster presentation?  

Evaluation for your presentation is done by two types of people: Evaluators and Reviewers.

Evaluators are assigned certain posters for review. (Your poster will be reviewed by multiple evaluators.) Using the Poster Presentation Review Criteria, they will provide detailed feedback and evaluate your presentation. Anyone wishing to be an evaluator must sign up in advance.

Reviewers can be anyone, and their review can be done anytime (during your presentation). This is anonymous, general feedback that occurs for all three event types.  No sign-up is required to be a reviewer.

Your evaluation information will be provided to you after the SRS is over and the information has been compiled. You may also get instant feedback from your evaluators and reviewers on-site.

Is there a poster workshop to help me with my presentation?

Yes! The poster workshop will be Tuesday, March 22 from 6pm to 7:30 pm. Registration is required to attend the workshop.
