Symposium Program Participant Registration Policy

All poster presenters must register to attend the symposium. Registration is free.
NOTE: Registration for the symposium is different from registering a poster. YOU MUST DO BOTH

Poster Format & Symposium Set-up Information

Posters must be designed to fit on a 4' x 4', free-standing bulletin board. Thumbtacks and a 4' x 4', free-standing bulletin board will be provided at the symposium for each accepted poster. Please arrive with your poster and handouts (if you have any) between 2:00pm and 3:00pm on Monday, September 23. When you arrive at the Folsom Field Club Level, check in and find your assigned poster number, which will be at the top of the bulletin board. Presenters are responsible for mounting their own poster and setting out any additional materials prior to the start of the symposium at 3:00pm.

Reasonable requests for tables or extra space to accommodate models, equipment, and other materials should be made at the time of your poster abstract submission in the comments box on the Poster Abstract Submission Form. All requests are subject to approval and if your request is approved, you will be notified.

The 3:15-4:45pm portion ("CU STEM Education Showcase") of the Symposium will be divided into two sections. "A" will be 3:15-4:00pm and "B" will be 4:00-4:45pm. Each accepted poster will be assigned to a section and the presenter will be informed of their section at the time of check-in. Presenters are asked to stand by their poster during their section to be available to discuss their program/research with attendees. Presenters are invited to stand by their poster during BOTH sections, but are only required to be available during their assigned section of the showcase. Please indicate on the poster submission form if you have a section preference and every effort will be made to accommodate your request.
