Presentation Guidelines

Oral Presentation

Oral presentations consist of presenting your work in a more formal setting using presentation software (Google Slides OR PowerPoint). You will be given additional details regarding oral presentation length after the conference schedule is determined; however, presentations are typically 12 minutes long with 3 minutes for questions. 

Poster Presentation

A poster presentation is a visual representation of your research project. A poster can be created using one PowerPoint or Google Slides. There are no specific requirements with regard to how the poster should look, as long as it appears clearly. If you are printing your poster through the Psychology Department, please make sure your Powerpoint or Google Slides template is formatted no larger than "Custom 42 x 48". Save your poster as a pdf and send to Gina Magliocco ( for printing by the posted deadline.

During your scheduled poster session, you will be assigned a board where your poster can be displayed. Attendees will be able to view and ask questions about your poster. Your audience will include anyone who attends the conference such as other students, faculty, staff, administration, and parents. We do ask that you be available to attend and answer questions about your poster for the duration of your appointed poster session.
