Each oral presentation is a 15-minute talk with PowerPoint slides, followed by 5 minutes for questions and transition. Oral presentations should be geared to a general audience.
If you are interested in presenting your research in an oral format, be sure to indicate this during abstract submission. Only a select number of abstracts will be chosen for oral presentations.
Once you have received an email from the GU PDA confirming the acceptance of your abstract for a poster presentation, you will need to ensure that your poster is prepared. Keep in mind that like your abstract, your poster and poster presentation should be geared toward a general audience.
If you have a poster already printed from a recent meeting, you are welcome to use it. Please send us the dimensions of your poster so we can reserve adequate space for you. If you are creating a new poster, we will assist in the cost of poster printing. You will receive details about poster specifications and deadlines in your confirmation email.
As we draw closer to the Postdoctoral Research Symposium, you will receive further instructions regarding poster placement, evaluations, and schedules for attending your poster.
Presentation Evaluation Criteria
Poster and oral presentations will be evaluated for the following categories: background/introduction, hypothesis or objective, methods, results, conclusion or discussion, future work, overall presentation and handling of questions, and quality of the poster or PowerPoint presentation.
First Place (Oral & Poster): $100
Second Place (Oral & Poster): $60
Third Place (Poster): $30
We are seeking faculty, graduate students, staff and postdocs to give feedback and scores for oral and poster presentations.
