In addition, the student will be responsible for the presentation of the paper at the conference.

Presentation Guidelines:

Presenters will be given a total of 30 minutes for a talk. 20 minutes will be given for the presentation, and 10 minutes for questions. Powerpoints are strongly encouraged. Handouts are not necessary. Posters should be a standard 48x36 inch size. We strongly encourage using a landscape orientation with information presented in vertical columns.
