Final Products

Final Products will be in one of two categories:

  • Posters: research in all subjects will be presented via posters. A physical poster is required for this submission type; go to BEACON or CURAH for assistance in creating your poster, and see guidance below for printing.
  • Oral Presentations: scholarly or research presentations that may be accompanied by visuals.

For more details on these two products, please review the product requirements.

To be considered for a Celebration award, you must deliver your final poster between 9:00 and 11:00 AM on April 19th at the welcome table in Jamrich (NOTE, however, that if you use NMU Printing Services, they will deliver the poster for you - see details in "Poster Printing" below). This deadline allows adequate time for juror review. Note that the poster is not required at the time of registration (i.e., the March 31st deadline is only for the abstract).

**Posters received after the above deadline will not be considered for awards and, depending on time constraints, may not be included in event proceedings.
