Guidelines for Poster Presentations

Because we do not have access to a large format printer nor do we have frames to hang them on at celebration day, we will use table top tri-fold boards to produce our posters.

All text and figures included on the poster shall conform to APA style. Literature sources must be appropriately credited in the text of the poster and in a References section at the end of the poster. In general, you should follow guidelines for a professional PowerPoint presentation, then print the slides and glue(stick) them onto the board.

Here is a mock-up I put together to help explain exactly what I expect for your Attach:PosterLayout.doc .

Here is a more professional description for scientific research posters, borrowed from Swarthmore College.

Here's the rubric for the final Interdisciplinary Research Presentation.
