Presentation types are poster, oral presentation, or elevator speech.

  • Poster Presentations: A standard poster is a single visual, typically between 3-5 feet on a side, with a minimum of 24 point font.
  • Oral Presentations:  Oral presentations are strictly limited to 12 minutes in length, with 3 minutes for Q&A.  Most typically, accompanying slides are in presented PowerPoint, but you are not required to use slides/PowerPoint.
  • Elevator Speech (limited to 8 registrants): For the elevator speech,  the presenter describes their research so that anyone can understand it. They do not have to conform to their field’s typical way of presenting research. The elevator speech is no more than 5 minutes (with up to an additional 3 minutes for Q&A) and may use visuals in the same way as the longer, oral presentations.
