2015 Student Poster Guidelines

Congratulations! Your proposal was selected by the STAR Research Mentor Group, and a poster highlighting your research will be featured in the Fall 2015 Research Showcase to be held November 5-6, 2015 at Johnson C. Smith University. Posters will be set-up on Wednesday, November 4th, and will be displayed during the Research Showcase. 

Poster Guidelines

* Required Size = 36” x 48” (3 ft. x 4 ft.).

o Individual sheets of paper or hand-made posters are not acceptable formats.

o If your poster has already been printed and is a different size than the required size, please contact Dr. Sarah Minslow at sminslow@jcsu.edu.

* Choice of Black-and-White or Full Color is up to you.

* Consult with a professor in your department for a template. Also, see the examples in the frequently asked questions below for inspiration. PowerPoint can often be set up to be a great program for creating posters.

* The posters will remain on display until the end of the Research Showcase. Posters may be collected after lunch on November 6, 2015. Posters that are not removed within a timely manner after the poster session will be discarded.
