21st Annual SWOSU Research and Scholarly Activity Fair
Participant Information and Instructions
The 21st Annual Research and Scholarly Activity Fair will take place on Tuesday, April 15, 2014, from Noon to 3:00 p.m. at SWOSU’s Memorial Student Center on the second floor. We encourage students, faculty, staff, and administration to present a poster or give an oral/podium presentation. We ask faculty who have students involved in research or other scholarly activity to encourage them to participate! Posters will be presented in the Ballroom; the oral/podium presentations will be presented in the Bonny Boardroom.
To register to give a poster or oral/podium presentation, please complete the abstract submission form. The deadline for abstracts is Saturday, March 15, 2014.
Poster set up will begin on the day of the fair at 8:00 a.m. and last until approximately 11:30 a.m. Approximately one week before the fair, you will be notified as to where and which panel you are assigned for your poster. Posters will be available for viewing beginning at 11:45 a.m.
Each presenter will be provided one side of a display panel, which measures 78” high by 50” wide. If you need a table and/or electrical outlet for your display, you will need to request that option(s) on the application. You will need to bring either Velcro or push-pins to attach your poster(s).
Set Up—Oral/Podium Presentations
Oral/podium presentations will begin at 12:30 p.m. on the day of the fair; they will be scheduled in 20-minute intervals, allowing for a 10-minute presentation, a five-minute question-and-answer session, and a five-minute intermission for the next presenter to set up. Approximately one week before the fair, you will be notified as to the time your presentation is scheduled.
