Poster Presentation Information (tentatively scheduled for Sept.5):  
There will likely be two poster sessions the Atrium of the Student Union Building (SUB).   This area will attract a lot of traffic.  Please make sure you bring your poster with you to registration on Sept. 5 so we can collect it and set it up well ahead of the event.  Also, please put your name and your session # on your poster tube so we can return it to you after the event.  We have enlisted volunteer evaluators (faculty and grad students) that will be circulating and filling out evaluations of the posters so that presenters can receive feedback.  

Poster Dimensions: 36”tall x 48”wide--Landscape Orientation Only. TIP--Roll your poster with the images and text facing outward before placing it in a travel tube.  It will display better during the session.

              YES!      NO!
