Presentation Guidelines

Due to space limitations, students applying to give oral presentations must first have been nominated by their departments. Students who have been nominated will receive email notifications of their nominations in March.

All students giving oral presentations at Undergraduate Research Week should prepare 7-8 minute presentations. Be sure to rehearse and time yourself to make sure your presentation does not exceed the time allotted. For many students, a 7-8 minute presentation, typed out in 12-point Times New Roman font, will be between 3.5 and 5 double-spaced pages.

The oral presentations will be organized into 1-hour panels. This means that you will give your presentation during an assigned 1-hour time spot along with a group of other students on your panel. Each panel will have a moderator, and time will be allotted at the end of the panel for questions from the audience.
