Wednesday in April and traditionally consists of a presentation and

Research Presentation and Poster Competition (nomination deadline:
March 14, 2008)

The Presentation and Poster Competition is designed to provide graduate
students an opportunity to share their research and contributions with
the university and larger community. Entries in this category should be
research presentations or posters written and designed in a way so as to
be understandable to a generalist. For example, if your research is in
the sciences, then it should be understandable to any scientist (and not
only to an expert in your field). Oral presenters will have as much as
15 minutes for their presentation followed by 2-3 minutes for questions.
Presentations will be scheduled 20 minutes apart to allow for
transitions. Poster presenters will have a standard conference size
poster display upon which to affix their research poster.

Winners of the Presentation and Poster Competition are announced during
the Awards Ceremony.

Graduate students who wish to be nominated for this competition should
speak with their advisor and graduate director to obtain
department/program details about how to participate be nominated from
their unit. Some departments hold internal competitions to select their
representatives for the Presentation and Poster Competition. Others
departments may select participants in other ways.

Students who wish to and are selected to compete in the Presentation
and Poster Competition should submit to their graduate director an
abstract using the following webform:

Creative Performances and Displays (nomination deadline: March 14,

Creative Performances and Displays are designed to provide graduate
students an opportunity to showcase the products of their creative
endeavors with the university and larger community. Entries in this
category can include art installations, musical performance, dance or
theatre performance, readings of creative writing, etc. In the creative
performance category, participants will be alloted 15 minutes in which
to introduce their performance to the audience (provide relevant
background) and perform their piece. Performances will be spaced 20
minutes apart to allow time for transition and set up.

Participants in this category will not participate in a competition,
but instead will receive an honorarium for their contribution.
