Presentation Guidelines

The Undergraduate Core Committee asks that all students making a presentation at the MindExpo symposium attend the entire event, if at all possible. This will be an opportunity to support and encourage all students doing interesting, creative work. Specific guidelines for each session are given below.


You will have table space on which to place your exhibition piece. We have allotted four feet per exhibit. If you think that this will not be enough space contact Dr. Nick Vaccaro ( 


Each oral presentation is allotted 12 minutes, plus three minutes for questions. Overhead and LCD projectors will be available, so you may use either transparencies or computer-based slide show. Check the Symposium Schedule page to find your presentation time and location.


Each person will be allotted a 48" X 35" poster board (or wall space) on which to place your poster. We will provide tacks or tape to use for mounting the poster. You may design the poster in anyway that you want, but it should at least include a title and your name somewhere at the top. One way to construct a poster is to use PowerPoint. We have created a template file that has the page dimensioned appropriately and some text areas with good font sizes suggested. Download the PowerPoint file here:
