Faculty & Student Poster Presentations

The Eastern Region seeks to encourage faculty and student research by providing a forum for them to present the results of their work.

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

The Poster Abstract should be written in Times Roman, 12pt.font. The page format is for 8 1/2 x 11 paper, 1 column, single spaced, and 1.35 inch margins (left, right) and 0.5 inch (top and bottom). Include all of the following information, in the order given below:

  • Poster Title
  • Presenter(s)
    • For each presenter, include the following information:
      • name
      • department
      • college, university, or other affiliation
      • address
      • telephone number
      • fax number
      • e-mail address
  • Abstract (Description) — (limited to one page)
    • 300 word limit.
    • If the poster is accepted, this abstract is the description that will appear in the Proceedings and Program.
    • Please be sure your description is accurate.

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.

What to Submit for a Student Poster Proposal

  1. Proposer: Include name, address, phone and fax numbers, email address (expect most correspondence by email), WWW address (if applicable), etc. This item does not count in the page limit. Poster proposals do not undergo blind review, so this information should be included.
