Princeton Research Day 2016

Please consult the guidelines below when preparing your presentation.

Remember to tailor your presentation for an educated but non-specialist audience consisting of your fellow students and the community at large.

 

A. POSTER PRESENTATION

Presenters will create and display a poster. Posters will be mounted on fixed poster stands on behalf of the presenters during the morning of the event. Each presenter will be provided with the location of their poster as they check in to the event. Each presenter should prepare a short (2 to 3-minute), non-technical oral summary that can be given to people who come to view the poster. Presenters will be assigned a time period during which they must be at the poster to discuss the project and answer questions.

B. Art Exhibition or Demonstration

Presenters will display a work of art or other object, such as a demonstration of an engineering or architecture project. Installations must fit into a 4-foot by 5-foot space and be installed by the presenter the morning of the event. Displays may represent a portion of a larger work. Each presenter should prepare a short (2 to 3-minute), non-technical oral summary that can be given to people who come to view the installation. Presenters will be assigned a time period during which they must be at the installation to discuss the project and answer questions.

C. 10 minute Talk

Presenters will give a 10-minute talk about their research or creative project. Talks may be accompanied by a presentation (e.g. PowerPoint or other presentation format) or other digital media as applicable. The presentation rooms will be equipped with a laptop computer, LCD projector, screen, laser pointer and timer. Large venues will have a lavaliere or handheld microphone for the speaker.  

D. 10 Minute Talk with Performance Component

Presenters will give a talk about their creative project that may incorporate a theatrical, dance or musical performance, a poetry reading, or another type of creative presentation.  The entire presentation should stay within the 10-minute framework. Presenters will be given one minute before and after for set up and striking any scenic elements, but any performance component must have minimal technical requirements. The Frist Performance Theater will be available for performance presentations. 

E. 90 second Pitch

Presenters will prepare a 90 second description of their research or creative project. Talks may be accompanied by a presentation (e.g. PowerPoint or other presentation format) or other digital media as applicable.  The presentation rooms will be equipped with a laptop computer, LCD projector, screen, laser pointer and timer.  Large venues will have a lavaliere or handheld microphone for the speaker.  

F. Video or Digital Presentation

Presenters will present a video or other digital presentation, such as a web site or application. The digital presentation may be aimed at explaining a research project, or it may be a stand-alone creative work such as a film or video excerpt. The format for video or digital presentations will be similar to that for a 10-minute talk session. Presenters will be assigned a session in which they will have a total of 10 minutes to introduce their topic, present their video or digital presentation, and answer questions. Utilize standard video format.
