Research Project

Poster Deliverable

You must submit your poster in either PPT, PPTX, or PDF (preferably PPTX) on the appropriate Canvas assignment. You must include the following items:

  1. Title and List of Team Members - Include photos if possible so that people can find you during the poster session if you're not at your poster.
  2. Background - Give 1-2 paragraphs of background information so that anyone who is not familiar with your project area can understand it.
  3. Problem - In 2-3 paragraphs (preferably including diagrams), describe the problem you addressed in your project.
  4. Methods/Experiments - In 2-3 paragraphs (preferably including diagrams), describe your contributions to solving or addressing the problem described in the previous section.
  5. Results - Provide any relevant results in the form of graphs, charts, tables, or text. Remember that any images will be enlarged; include vector graphics wherever possible.
  6. Conclusion & Future Work - Provide a 1-2 sentence summary and then describe at least 2-3 concrete ideas that you have for extending this project in the future.

Do not try to fit everything you have onto the poster; focus on the most important points and use visual aids (images, figures, graphs, etc.) whenever possible. Here is a poster template you may use; however, you may use any format that is clean, readable, and scales properly to a 3'x2' landscape poster board. Check carefully for factual errors as well as grammar and spelling mistakes before you submit--such things are very embarrassing during a poster session!

Your submission will be graded on its correctness, completeness, thoroughness, and scope. Because every project is different, it is impossible to provide a single rubric. Each submission will be graded based on its individual merit. Some portion of the grade will be based on your attendance and presentation at the poster session (date/time TBD) using this rubric. I will provide some written feedback and assign you an overall letter grade for this submission as follows:

Exceptional A
Good B
Satisfactory C
Deficient D
Unacceptable F
