UWB Undergraduate Research Symposium: May 9, 2014
Poster Sessions & 10 minute oral presentations
The UWB Undergraduate Research Symposium is an opportunity for UWB undergraduates to present what they have learned through their research experiences to a larger audience. The event showcases projects from all disciplines and encourages interdisciplinary discourse, allowing students to learn from each other about a broad range of exciting research topics. Students currently involved in research are encouraged to apply. Those not yet involved in research will learn about the broad range of opportunities available at UWB.
Students will be able to include their research presentations on resumes and graduate school applications!
What should my poster look like? What should be in my oral presentation? What is an abstract?
Oral presentations should be 10 minutes in length immediately followed by 4 minute question and answer session. Presentations should be tailored to an educated but non-expert audience and can include slides (e.g., PowerPoint), live demonstrations or performances, audience participation and/or handouts for the audience.
The poster should include a statement of the idea investigated, a description of the method or approach used, findings or progress to date, and a summary.
An abstract is a summary of your research usually presented in skeletal form, which concentrates on the essentials of a larger idea or claim. Your abstract should include sufficient information for reviewers to judge the nature and significance of your research, the adequacy of the methodology employed, and the nature of the results and/or progress to date.
Still feel lost?
Don’t worry! Workshops on how to write abstracts, how to design your poster and how to give oral presentations are offered by the Undergraduate Research Program at UW Seattle and at UW Bothell. Or please make an appointment with Charlotte Rasmussen for more information.
For more information or questions, please contact Charlotte Rasmussen at CRasmussen@uwb.edu.
