Symposium Participant Instructions

Regardless of the medium (talk, poster, alternative), each requires an oral presentation component for the judges. All talks may be no longer than 5 minutes, after which a Question-and-Answer may take up no more than an additional 2 minutes to allow judges to record their scores and move onto the next poster or alternative media presentation, or for the next talk presenter to set up in the talk presentation classrooms or Quiet Study Lounge. Remember that judges are from within and outside of academia; you are bringing your work to a broad audience, many of whom may not be familiar with complex topics or topical jargon. The judging rubric is here.
