Presenter Guidelines

ABSTRACTS: A brief abstract of your work is due via email no later than November 1, 2013.  Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words and should include your project purpose, methodology, results, and conclusions.  Presenters should use these abstracts as guides when constructing their oral presentations.  Please email your abstract as either a Word document, PDF, or rich text file to the following email address: catherine.lanier@oregonstate.edu.  Please contact the Space Grant staff with any questions at 541-737-2414. 

POSTERS: A poster representing the fundamentals of your research project is required.  Posters will be displayed during the symposium sessions and will be retained by Oregon Space Grant for future display on the Oregon State University campus and at future Space Grant functions.  Most institutions provide free poster printing to enrolled students, so be sure and check with your university/college student media services for details.  Posters should be printed at a maximum size of 48" X 36". Laminated posters are preferred; it is not recommended to mount your poster on foam board. 

PRESENTATIONS: Your oral presentation should elaborate upon your abstract.  Plan to present for a maximum of 10 minutes.  Presentations running over the time limit will be stopped by the moderators.  You may use either your poster or a separate PowerPoint presentation as a visual aid during your presentation.  A PC computer and projection equipment will be available for your use during the presentation. If you plan to use a PowerPoint file, please bring a digital copy on a USB drive.  There will be a short question and answer session following your presentation so please be prepared for questions.
