STUDENT ACADEMIC POSTER SESSION

2017 PI GAMMA MU CONVENTION

Purpose: The Poster Session is designed to feature student work in the Social Sciences and promote interaction among all Pi Gamma Mu members attending the 2017 Triennial Convention. A poster consists of an exhibit of materials that reports academic work or information in visual and summary form. During a poster session, the presenter(s) stand by the display while others come and view the poster and interact with the presenter(s).

Content: Undergraduate students experience and study the Social Sciences in many ways. This session is designed to feature the variety of these experiences, disciplines and studies. Posters may present completed original research and data collection,  projects and papers which may be "in progress", theoretical works and applications, studies of public policy and  summaries of applied experiences such as service-learning projects or internship experiences. In addition, posters provide a means for students to present group projects as well as those of individuals. 

Format: Detailed guidelines and information on poster displays and size specifications, session logistics (date, time, place), and presenter expectations will be sent to all participants accepted into the session at a later date.

Submission Information: 
Poster proposals are welcome anytime but are due no later than Sep. 15, 2017.
Once reviewed and accepted, the presenters will be notified of their acceptance. This process may help the presenters in seeking institutional funding so early submissions are encouraged.

Send poster submissions directly to Jean Karlen ([email protected]). Contact Dr. Karlen with any questions you may have. 

Poster Proposals Requirements: 

Poster Title

Presenters: At a minimum, each poster submission needs to include the name and contact information of one individual who will serve as the key contact for the poster session.

Institutional and Faculty Information: The chapter name, institutional affiliation, address, name and contact information (email and phone number) of chapter's faculty sponsor must be provided. Submitters are also encouraged to include the department, course name and faculty member for whom the paper/project may have been initially assigned.

Abstract:  (a summary of the poster's content in 150 words or less)

Expectations of Poster Presenters: 

Students must be members of Pi Gamma Mu and register for the convention by the October 15 deadline ($100) in order to be mentioned in the convention program. Please note that the early deadline for registration is October 1 ($75).

Posters may be on display in an open area for some of the convention time; however, during the scheduled student poster session, participants are to be present by their posters to offer summaries of their posters and answer questions.  

Format/Set up Information: Posters will be placed on easels so will need a backing or clips to be securely attached to the easel. Foam boards or tri-fold cardboard boards work well.   No additional materials including tape, pins, glue, or cardboard will be provided. 

Additional information will be provided to presenters at a later date.

Poster Submission Deadline: September 15, 2017.

Please contact Jean Karlen with any questions you may have.
