Undergraduate & Graduate Poster Session Proposal Form

Eligibility:

We are looking for students and a selected faculty advisor to present posters at this year's Cultural & Leadership Empowerment Conference (February 28-March 1, 2014). The theme for this event is "Remembering the Legacy by Inspiring Future Leaders." The goal of the poster session is to highlight the research of our undergraduate and graduate students.

Poster Guidelines:

A poster session is also a graphic presentation of authors’ reports. Students illustrate their research findings by displaying graphs, photos, diagrams and a small amount of text on the poster. Students will then hold discussions with the registrants who are circulating among the posters. The author must remain by his/her poster board for the duration of the poster session.

The poster should be no more than 4 feet tall by 4 feet wide and will be a Tri-Fold that will be provided. Materials should include the title of the presentation and list of authors. Letters in the title should be at least 1 inch high. Bring all illustrations needed (figures, tables, color photographs, charts). The material should be well labeled and legible from a distance of two yards. If you are posting typed material, use a large font size (20 to 24 fonts).

*The primary presenter must be the author(s) of the work on which the exhibit is based: Responsible for substantial contributions to the conception, design, data acquisition, data analysis or data interpretation; and Responsible for the drafting and final version of the poster presentation. All correspondence will be sent to the primary and secondary author.

* Secondary present/Faculty Advisor: Responsible for substantial contributions to the conception, design, data acquisition, data analysis or data interpretation; & Responsible for the drafting and final version of the poster presentation. All correspondence will be sent to the primary and secondary author.
