2017 GSG Poster Symposium

Call for Posters
Are you involved in an interesting research/project that you would like to showcase to all graduate students and faculty members of NAU? Do you have a poster that you have presented in a previous conference but you have not had a chance to exhibit it at NAU?

Why not present your work in the Graduate Poster Symposium 2017? We all want to know the great projects you have been working on!

Graduate students of NAU from all fields are encouraged to submit their abstract for this symposium. There will be awards for first, second, third, and most popular poster presentations.

Event Description
This event will be held on March 28th, 2017 immediately following the 3 Minute Research Presentation (3MRP) competition at the High Country Conference Center.

The Graduate Poster Symposium will highlight a variety of programs, papers, projects, and research studies of the graduate students of Northern Arizona University from all disciplines. The event provides an opportunity for students to enhance their presentation skills, introduce their research to those outside of their discipline, and represent their respective Colleges.

This is a great opportunity to practice presenting your research to a crowd that is interested in science and current research at NAU. In participating, you can take advantage of the crowd that will be in attendance to hear compelling and plainly spoken research ideas and results. In addition, the poster presenters will have the opportunity to receive feedback from faculty members, graduate students, and other guests.

All accepted applicants must attend one of two planning meetings to participate in the symposium. This meeting will cover important logistical details as well as strategies for organizing and presenting your work in a professional manner.

Meetings options will be on the days of March 8th and 20th. You must register for one of these meetings in your online application.

How to apply
Step 1: Fill out the following form by February 13th with your abstract and relevant information: You MUST register for a planning meeting to present. If you cannot make any of these meeting times, please email us at to schedule something that will work for you.

Step 2: Email a PDF of your poster to using:
“GRADUATE_POSTER_FIRSTNAME_LASTNAME” in the subject line by March 6th.
Make sure the PDF is large enough to be visible and legible to judges who will be viewing your file.

Presenters will NOT be able to display their poster unless this has been received.

Set-Up and Display
Posters will be installed earlier in the day so as not to conflict with 3MRP setup.  Posters may be set up from 9:00 – 11:00 am on Tuesday, March 28th in the High Country Conference Center.

A registration table will be in the lobby. Please stop by to confirm your poster position, hang up your poster, and ask questions.
