Princeton Research Day 2016

Thank you for presenting your research at Princeton Research Day. Please consult these guidelines when preparing your presentation. Note the deadlines below for submitting your presentation. These submission dates ensure that we can print your poster or load your slides/video in a timely manner so your presentation is the best it can be.

Remember to tailor your presentation for an educated, nonspecialist audience. 

All presentation materials for Princeton Research Day must be submitted in advance. Presenters will not be able to utilize their own laptop or bring updated versions of the presentations on the day of the event. Presenters will have an opportunity to review their presentation materials very briefly before their session. 

Non-video presentation files must be uploaded to the PRD presentation upload site. (The deadline for submitting poster files has passed.) The file size limit is 150 MB. Video presentation files should be uploaded to a suitable server, such as the PRD Google Drive site, YouTube or Vimeo. That video link must be uploaded to the PRD presentation upload site.   

Please view the requirements below prior to uploading your presentation or video.

POSTER PRESENTATION/Visual Exhibit

Each presenter will be provided with the location of their poster/exhibit as they check in to the event. Each presenter should prepare a short (2 to 3 minutes), nontechnical 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 or exhibit to discuss the project and answer questions.

Poster presenters will create and display a poster with dimensions up to 30 inches tall and 40 inches wide. Posters will be mounted on fixed poster stands on behalf of the presenters during the event. Please save your poster file in PowerPoint or PDF format. It is good practice to NOT place anything (logo, box, text, fine border lines etc.) within 1/4-inch of the edges of your poster.  A full color background is OK. For more information about poster formatting, please visit: http://posterprinting.princeton.edu/. Presenters should leave their posters up for the duration of PRD and should remove them after 4 p.m. May 11. 

Visual exhibit 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. Set up a meeting with Lucy Weise (lweise@princeton.edu) between April 24 and May 5 to discuss the installation.

10 Minute Talk, Performance or Video/Digital Presentation

Presenters will be given 10 minutes to introduce and present their research, performance or video/digital presentation. Talks may be accompanied by a presentation (e.g. PowerPoint or other presentation format) or other digital media, such as a film or video excerpt. 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.  

Submit presentations to the PRD presentation upload site. Upload video files to the PRD Google Drive, YouTube, Vimeo or another server. Utilize standard video format: H.264 codec, 24 or 30 frames per second, Mov or MP4 format. That video link must be uploaded to the PRD presentation upload site.
