POSTER & JUDGING INFORMATION

JUDGING SCHEDULE

 Each Participant is allotted a 4 foot x 4 foot space for their poster. Posters should not exceed this size.

The judges are most likely not experts in your specific area of research. The topics covered in this competition are very broad and logistically it would be near impossible to provide close expertise. However, the judges have been selected based on their success as scientists in their respective fields and their broader knowledge of science.

As with any presentation, the audience must be taken into account and the information delivered accordingly.

 

TIME FRAME

20 minutes have been allocated per abstract as follows:

10 - 12 minutes for presentation (do not exceed this time)

3 -5 minutes for questions

5 minutes for the judges to discuss your poster between themselves.

Judges MUST keep to the time allocated so failing to leave sufficient time for questions will penalize you.

 

WHAT YOU WILL BE JUDGED ON

1. Organization

2. Clarity of presentation (background, hypothesis, methods (controls, statistics), results, conclusions

3. Visual appearance of poster

4. Response to questions

5. Defense of experimental results
