What is a Faculty Poster Presentation?

We invite faculty and graduate students to submit posters on relevant topics or current research. An abstract, of not more than 300 words, is required for consideration.  Accepted abstracts that are submitted prior to the deadline, will be included in the published Conference Proceedings. Those submitted later will be included in the Conference Program.  During the Conference, an area will be provided for the display of the accepted posters and related materials, and presenters will be able to present their project or research to the conference attendees.

What to Submit for a Faculty Poster Proposal

Include all of the following information, in the order given below:

What is a Student Poster Presentation?

We invite undergraduate students to submit an abstract describing their research or significant project. Topics may include any computer-related research or significant project activity, either theoretical or applied. A faculty mentor must sponsor each proposal. Students whose proposals are accepted must participate in a poster session competition during the conference. Students presenting posters should register for the conference at the student rate.

During the conference, an area will be reserved for the display of student posters and related materials describing their research or projects. Students can begin to set up after the opening session of the conference. During this session, students must be present to discuss their work with conference attendees. Student Poster Proposals undergo review, although not a blind review.

A panel of judges will select the top posters for awards. The winners will be recognized and receive their awards at the conference luncheon on Saturday.
