Guidelines for Oral Presentations

  • The audience for the conference and the poster presentations includes students and faculty from across the University of Northern Iowa campus and beyond.

  • First authors on oral presentations should be undergraduate or graduate students.

  • The submission deadline for paper presentations is April 1, 2019. Abstracts should be 50-100 words.

  • Presentations should be about 10 minutes, with a few minutes left for questions from the audience. Presentations must (in total) be less than 15 minutes.

  • You will be assigned a room number and time for your presentation. Please make sure that you arrive about 10 minutes before the beginning of your session (not just before your talk) so that you can load your presentation (e.g., PowerPoint) on the computer and introduce yourself to the session moderator. Bring your presentation or anything you wish to project from the computer on a flash drive. The moderator will enforce the time limit, but it is also professional courtesy to stay within the prescribed limit.

  • For additional information please contact helen.harton@uni.edu.
