There are four presentation types:
- Individual and co-authored presentations (one to two persons)
- Group/team presentations (three or more persons)
- Panel presentations (a gathering of two to three individual presentations under a single theme)
- Artistic/creative performances (one or more persons)
Note: the poster format option has moved to a Scholars Day poster session event
Guidelines for individual and co-authored presentations
This format is intended for presenters of a single-topic academic paper or research project. In the past, the norm has been one speaker presenting his or her individual research paper or project. This category is also appropriate for co-authored work.
Guidelines for topic-centered panel presentations
The purpose of the panel format is to create a cohesive investigation of a single theme through the presentation of several individual research projects. Panelists should keep this goal in mind when preparing their individual remarks and working with the other participants.
Guidelines for artistic/creative performances
Format may vary considerably for applicants in the artistic/creative performance category. Depending on the number of participants, special space needs (piano, stage, etc.) and artistic discipline involved, there will be an option to choose one of two time slots.
