Poster and Oral Sessions
Participating in the Graduate Research Forum is a great way develop your presentational skills and to learn about what graduate students in other programs do. You can present your research in an oral session or a poster session. Oral sessions are 75 minutes with three to five presenters. Presenters have 10-20 minutes to present their research to the audience, with questions during the last 10 minutes of the session. Poster sessions are 75 minutes and each presenter has a 42"x64" cork surface to hang his or her poster. Presenters discuss their research with guests as they circulate through the posters. All presentations are evaluated by alumni and/or faculty judges. Awards in the form of professional expense funds are given to the top three oral and top three poster presentations.
