Presentation Format

Oral Presentations

All talks will be 15 minutes with 5 minutes for questions and transition to the next speaker. If you plan to use slides or other projected media, please bring your talk on a flash drive to have it installed on the computer before the beginning of your session. Students should report to their presentation rooms prior to the session to work out any technical details, especially if video is being used.

If you are assigned to the Visualization and Teaching room please send us your oral presentation before the conference as those must be accessed via Drop Box.

The presentation rooms will be equipped with wireless internet and PC compatible presentation. If you have an oral presentation that is high in visual display please notify Heather King at to request the Teaching and Visualization Lab.

“The Teaching and Visualization Lab is designed as a “black box” theater for high-definition visualization and simulation, offering 270-degree immersive projection on three walls for a total of 80 linear feet of display surface. The room can meet a variety of needs, including high-impact presentations; technology-rich interactive learning in small groups; large-scale, high-definition visualization and simulation; command/control room simulation; immersive interactive computing; game research; “big data” decision theater; and comparative social computing.”


Posters should be no larger than 36″ X 48″. Tack board and tacks will be provided and we can accommodate either horizontal or vertical posters. Students must stay with their poster for the duration of their allotted session and be prepared to discuss their research.

Models and Exhibits

There will be limited space for the display of models (architecture and others) and original artwork (ceramics, sculptures, and other art that can be placed on tables). Easels will be available for paintings, drawings, and other hanging artwork. Students must stay with their piece of work for the duration of their allotted session in which their work will be on display and be prepared to discuss their piece (the inspiration for it, meaning behind it, choice of media, etc.).

There will be a maximum of 3 oral presentation and a maximum of 1 exhibit or performance per institution. All others will be poster presentations.
