The Forum provides an excellent professional development opportunity for graduate students to share their research with a broad audience of faculty, other graduate students, undergraduates, and members of the larger community. The 2022 Annual Research Forum has adopted a hybrid format.
There are three session types this year:
- 10-minute “podium” presentation, such as a slideshow (prerecorded virtual submission only).
- 5-minute poster presentation (prerecorded virtual option).
- 5-minute poster presentation (in-person option).
Virtual sessions (podium or poster) will require students to submit their presentations in a video format to the GPSA for judging prior to the Research Forum (deadline March 22, 2022). Judging of the virtual presentations will take place from March 28 - March 31, 2022. Virtual presentations: Students may submit their prerecorded presentations online via the Virtual Presentation Submission Form. Instructions to submit your video presentation are found in the form.
In-person sessions will have student poster presentations starting at 9 a.m. on April 2, 2022. All posters must be turned in to the Graduate Student Commons (LLB 2141) by 8:00 PM on March 31, 2022. In-person poster presentations: Posters must be 48"x36". To help students offset the costs of presenting research, GPSA is offering complimentary poster printing this year. To take advantage of this opportunity, you must submit your poster PDF via our Poster Printout Request Form by March 28, 2022, at 5:00 PM. Otherwise, you are responsible for printing your 48"x36" poster at your own cost. All posters must be turned into the Graduate Commons, LLB 2141, on the second floor of Lied Library no later than March 31, 2022, by 8:00 PM.
These deadlines cannot be extended. The GPSA will contact you with details about your specific session once we have finalized the poster and podium schedules.
Poster formatting help documents are available on the Research Forum website under “Related Links”. Students looking to present in person are encouraged to reach out to their department about funds or resources to print their posters. Poster printing is available in the Lied Library (see Circulation) and the Student Union (see the Information Desk).
