Effective communication of your research is vital to the scientific community and to your career. Posters are often used at conferences to develop opportunities for graduate school or employment. Developing a poster for CUE will help you practice summarizing information concisely, accurately, and attractively. You will gain poise and mental agility as you explain and defend your work. You will also be better prepared to participate in the Univerisity-wide Undergraduate Exhibiition and develop a more complete EMSAGE application.
Research, experiential learning, creative activity, and educational experience relevant to the study of Earth and Mineral Sciences may serve as the subject of a poster entered for exhibition. This exhibition is not only for students working in a lab collecting data. Additional ideas you can use to make a poster include the following: capstone projects, internships, study abroad, study away, embedded travel courses, community-based research, service learning, student clubs, and other educational experiences.
As long as the topic is EMS related, it can be the subject of your poster. It is not necessary to have completed the entire project, either. If a well-defined part of the project is complete, you can use the information to create a poster. It is also okay if the poster contains information that has been presented at other regional or national meetings. Please read and follow the specific guidelines below.
- Posters should be 3 feet in height and 4 feet in width.
- Abstracts are limited to 75 words and should contain a brief description of your poster. If the abstract exceeds the word count, it will be cut at the 75th word.
- Proofread and edit the abstract carefully as what you write will be copied and included in the event brochure.
- In addition to the abstract, you will need to submit an entry form that requires a list of the authors and the faculty/supervisor under whose guidance the project was completed (name and email).
- The CUE Committee will review your poster abstract and entry form and notify you via email if you are selected to present your poster at the CUE event.
- Both individuals and EMS undergraduate teams can create posters for CUE.
- If you are selected, you or someone from your team need to be present at the event from 4 to 6 p.m. on April 1, 2020.
- There is no entry fee. The Ryan Family Student Center provides free poster printing if needed for accepted submissions.
- Participants are responsible for overseeing the printing and transportation of their posters to the event. Your acceptance email will include details on printing arrangements.
- Entry forms and abstracts must be completed and submitted online by 11:59 p.m. on March X, 2020.
