Common questions regarding presentations, accommodations, and parking.

1. Roundtable Presentation 

A roundtable presentation is an opportunity to receive feedback on proposed research in an informal, collaborative environment. Presenters will orally present their proposed research to facilitate discussion, with 5 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion, questions, and feedback. The session participants will take on the role of asking questions and providing feedback.  


2. Poster Presentation 

A poster presentation is an opportunity to receive feedback on works in progress. Presenters will present their work in progress using a poster to facilitate discussion, with 10 minutes for presentation and 5 minutes for discussion, questions, and feedback. Please follow common poster guidelines. Typical posters are 48" x 60", but slightly smaller or larger is permissible.


3. Lecture Presentation 

This presentation format is often selected when the presenter’s goal is to present data or academic findings from a polished, soon-to-be complete or finished research study. Each paper presentation will be 20 minutes in length, including 15 minutes for the presentation and 5 minutes for questions and discussion. 


4. Alternative Presentation 

An alternative presentation format provides participants with an opportunity to present their academic work in a creative way. Participants may present as part of a group or as an individual. The purpose of the presentation should be clearly articulated and related to the conference theme and should be no longer than 10 minutes. Possible formats include, but are not limited to: 

  • Pecha Kucha: present your research in 20 slides with 20 seconds per slide.
  • 3MT: present your research and its wider impact in 3 minutes or less with one slide and no props.
  • Art Gallery: an asynchronous format for the duration of the conference. Examples include poetry, visual art or representations, etc.
