Presentation Formats

Students should submit their presentations in the medium best suited to their discipline (oral presentations, posters, or exhibits and models). Students in the visual arts will have the opportunity to display their original works (models, painting, sculpture, etc.) during the poster session. Appropriate space for performing arts work is limited at our venue, so students interested in presenting in this form should have their faculty representative contact Georiga Tech early to see if appropriate space is available.  Alternatively, a video presentation with discussion would be appropriate.

Oral Presentations

Students should prepare a 15 minute presentation to showcase your research. Students will need to bring their PowerPoint to the conference on a USB jump drive and a printed copy of your presentation as well.  Students should report to their presentation rooms at least 10 minutes prior to the session to work out any technical details, especially if video is being used. A 5-minute Q&A period will follow each presentation.


Your poster can be no larger than 3’x 4’. It may be oriented either horizontally or vertically, to be mounted on a backboard and paced on an easel. Both the blackboard and easel will be provided for you. If you are unable to print a large poster, you may also use PowerPoint software to print out several 8.5” x 11” sheets that can be attached to a 3’ x  4’ board comfortably. Students should stay with their poster for the duration of their allotted session and be prepared to discuss their research.

Models and Exhibits

There will be limited space for displays of models (architecture and others) and original artwork (ceramics, sculptures, and other art that can be placed on tables). Easels will be available for paintings, drawings, and other hanging artwork. Students should stay with their display for the duration of their allotted session and be prepared to discuss your piece (the inspiration for it, meaning behind it, choice of media, etc…) during the allotted presentation time.
