Poster presentation: 

For students giving poster presentations (see KU poster templates here) they will submit a PDF of their poster. 

  • Required: Upload a PDF of poster (must be no more than 10MB in size).
  • Optional: Upload YouTube video and paste link of video voice over (2-3 minutes recommended) of presenter describing the work/poster.

This will be a public event, so presenters should communicate with their mentor about their presentation before they submit it. If students are presenting research that is proprietary, please consult with us about options for presenting your work. 

Presenters are expected to check their presentation at least two times per day during the event to respond to any comments.

  1. Write a draft of a title and abstract or artist statement of no more than 250 words describing your research/creative scholarship. The title and abstract will be posted online, so be sure to review them carefully.  The KU Writing Center website provides tips for writing abstracts.
  2. Review your title and abstract with your research mentor and make any suggested revisions. 
  3. Please register by 11:59PM, Sunday, July 16th.
  4. Once you register your presentation, an automated email will be sent to the main presenter/registrant and it will include the presentation submission link.
  5. Please upload your presentation by 11:59PM on Sunday, July 23rd.
