Tips for attending the Student Research Symposium
The event will be on March 4 and 5, 2022. More information to come out soon.
Types of sessions
There are two types of sessions: poster presentations and oral presentations.
Attending a poster presentation is easy, and it's a great way to talk with students who are working with faculty in your field!
- Once you find a poster you want to learn more about, look for the person standing by the poster and ask "Is this your poster?"
- Assuming you get a "Yes," ask the presenter to walk you through their project. (Yup, that's it! You don't even have to read what they have there!)
- If you want to know more, follow up with questions about their research project.
Attending oral presentations is easy, just arrive before the session starts if possible. You will hear a series of short presentations (about 10 minutes each), followed by a 5-minute question-and-answer session. You may enter or leave a session in between presentations, but be polite, quiet, and discreet.
