Loyola graduate students and recent alumni are invited to present their research in the form of a poster session at “Emerging Scholars: A Celebration of Graduate Research.” The third annual event is scheduled for Friday, April 25, 2014.
A poster session provides you a forum to informally present your work to the Loyola community in the context of a wine and cheese reception and awards ceremony (see an example of a very large-scale poster session). The Ferguson Gallery will provide a perfect setting to allow attendees to view your poster, ask questions, and discuss your ideas.
Presenters will be provided large, 8’ x 4’ bulletin boards for posting their research. Up to two presenters (or groups of presenters) will share space on each side of the board. The University will pay for professional printing of your poster, up to 42” x 42” in dimension, for the Emerging Scholars event. Learn more about this printing offer.
Poster sessions may be based on research conducted for a paper, capstone project, thesis or dissertation, or case study. Research may be in various stages of completion, and may come from any discipline. See some tips and guidelines on how to best present your research.
The application deadline for the 2014 event is Friday, March 28th. The committee requests that no "second shows" of posters from previous years be submitted. For more information about presenting, contact Mark Lee at firstname.lastname@example.org.
