Presentation Types

At Princeton Research Day research will be presented in a few different formats scheduled in sessions throughout the day:

  • Posters and visual exhibits take place in a gallery that provides an opportunity for attendees to learn about a variety of research projects by speaking directly with presenters.
  • Talks take place during concurrent sessions in the morning and afternoon, in small to mid-size venues where attendees will view 3-4 presentations per session on a broadly construed theme.
  • Mainstage presentations of the PRD Featured Talks cap the day with a session in front of a large audience.
