Presenting your research

Presentation format and event-day setup

Participation requirements

At minimum, one author of your abstract must participate in the poster session for one hour. You may choose the time period during the 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. event.

Presentation format



If you are making a poster specifically for this event, limit the size to 48” x 48”.

If you already have a poster that was displayed at professional meetings during the past calendar year, you may use the same poster regardless of its size.

Please indicate poster size on the submission form so the committee can allow adequate space.

On campus you can get your poster printed inexpensively at Design and Printing Services: 509-335-3518.

Plan to have your poster ready by Tuesday, March 26. You will need it to set up for the event the following day.

Other presentation formats

Musical and/or theatrical presentations will be accepted in either CD or DVD format. Please provide headphones to help viewers hear the presentation. Visuals from theatrical presentations may include drawings, costumes, programs, etc.

Non-poster formats

Space will be available for tabletop displays or presentation formats other than a display board. Please indicate your needs on the submission form and provide detailed information in the comment field.
