Poster sessions and judging
Posters will be judged during two Friday sessions (“even” and “odd” numbered posters, respectively), on Friday, November 10. Please check the Research Day program for specific times. Poster presenters should be prepared to give 3-5 minute overview of their work to the judges and other viewers, and answer questions from both experts in their field and general scientific audience. Presenters are expected to remain “at their posters” (i.e. on the zoom call) for the entire session.
Each poster will have at least two judges for the main categories in which prizes are awarded. There will be additional independent judges selecting the Student Chapter Choice Awards as well as the Office of Technology Management Innovation Award.
Getting feedback on your research and poster presentation
The poster evaluation forms will not be shared with poster presenters. If you have specific questions, or if you would like to know how well you are doing in presenting your research ideas, ask your judges directly. Most of them will be happy to give you an honest assessment and suggestions for improvement.
