NOTE: Students who graduated in May 2017 are eligible as long as the work on the poster was completed while they were Undergraduate students.
The Undergraduate Research Poster Competition is a recognised University of Manitoba Co-Curricular Record activity and all participants will be recognized.
YES. As long as you were a University of Manitoba undergraduate student and the poster was completed on/before you graduated in May, 2017.
NO. The poster should be self-explanatory and you will not be deducted any points for not being at your poster. You are, however, expected to collect your poster after 4:30pm the day of the event.
Could I submit a poster for a project that isn't completed yet?
YES. We don’t want to discourage you, so if you are comfortable entering the competition with uncompleted work, we will accept the poster.
YES. As long as you are currently enrolled as an Undergraduate student and you have a University of Manitoba advisor, we will accept the poster.
Preferably, you should be the first author of the research on the poster. A disclaimer is highly recommended. You need to be able to identify your role in the context of the larger project. Also, you must contact the others involved for their permission should you present the entirety of the project.
NO. We accept only one poster author per entry. We do not accept group submissions nor will other authors be considered as participants in the Poster Competition. Multiple authored projects should be submitted individually to be credited with participation in the Poster Competition.
NO. You are not required to prepare a speech. Your poster will be graded on the official judging criteria. The judges may ask you questions in conversation, but this will not influence the grading in anyway.
NO. You will not be evaluated on your ability to communicate. The poster should be self-explanatory in presenting your research and findings. The judges will not deduct points if you are not able to be there in person.
NO. There is no specific time frame or appointments for judging. The judging takes place between 1:00-3:00pm inclusive. The judges will have up to five posters each to evaluate. Judges may have 15-20 minutes for each poster.
You should check with your research advisor.
You will be assigned a 4'H X 8'W Poster Board on which to display your research, scholarly work or creative activity. Please note that you will need a 4"H X 11"W space in the upper right hand corner for the poster board number identifying your project. Other than that, the space is yours.
Your poster can be set up between 11:00am and 12:30pm on October 26, 2017 in the Multipurpose Room, in University Centre. You will need to check in at the registration desk upon arrival and we will give you directions as to where you are to set up your poster. Judging will begin at 1:00pm.
