Poster Session Format
The NCORE poster presentation format is an interactive presentation format where participants display their work using creative posters with the goal of sharing their work with the community of NCORE.
Presentations are informal. Please be sure you are deeply familiar with the information on your poster, be prepared with talking points and be ready for conversation!
There is no need to prepare a formal presentation. Attendees will walk and browse through the presentations and will spend a few minutes at each one. The more interactive you are and the more unique your display materials, the more likely attendees will stop and learn about your research. Be spontaneous! This is an opportunity to have unique conversations about your work with a variety of NCORE scholars and professionals.
NCORE will provide a trifold poster board that is 36” tall x 48” wide (the center section is 24”). We will also provide double sided tape, glue sticks, scissors, and a designated area to prepare your poster for installation. Please note that the session room will not have electrical outlets for your use. Therefore, should you choose to supplement your poster with presentation hardware (such as a personal laptop or tablet), make sure it is fully charged and consider bringing a battery backup.
