Spring Symposium

SPRING SYMPOSIUM

May 20, 2015



Symposium Overview

The Spring Symposium is an opportunity for undergraduate students at Eastern Oregon to showcase and present their creative activities and accomplished studies to fellow students, faculty and the public.

Students will present on a variety of topics spanning the breadth of scholarly work undertaken on our campus.  The presentations are discipline-specific and range from artistic displays, panel presentations, poster sessions, talks, exhibits, and performance art.

It is an excellent “presenting” opportunity for students, and a celebration of undergraduate achievement in research and creative activities.

 

Information for Student Presenters

All students that wish to present at the Spring Symposium must complete the online application.  An abstract (1400 character limit) describing the research effort must be included as part of the application.  Please work with your faculty adviser when preparing the abstract.  We will be providing information sessions on preparing a talk and for creating a poster.  Dates will be announced for early spring term help sessions.

Poster printing:

Poster printing instructions for BH119 printer (Geology Dept) are being made available to students participating in Poster Presentations for the 2015 Spring Symposium.   As this room (BH119) is booked for classes, the printer has limited availability. Since a poster printing session is likely to take 60 minutes, please schedule your print time ASAP and DO NOT wait until the week of Symposium!

The hours for poster printing in May for Symposium are 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and 8:00 am to 4:00 pm on Tuesday and Thursday.  Keep in mind there is a service charge for poster printing to cover supplies and maintenance (plan for up to $25).  Anyone paying for their own poster will need to do so via cash or check and receipts will be issued.  We can transfer charges to department accounts only with the approval of the department head.

Contact:  MJ Heather, BH215, Email: heathe3@eou.edu for additional information and to schedule printing time.
