What: Longhorn Research Poster Session, Research Week 2020
When: April 16-17, 2020
Who: Everyone is welcome
The Longhorn Research Poster Session has moved online for 2020. View student posters from the 2020 Longhorn Research Poster Session April 16-17.
The Longhorn Research Poster Session is a festive event where colleges, departments, research units, programs, and student organizations from across campus provide information for students about their undergraduate research activities and opportunities.
Students from a variety of colleges and schools will present their work. Undergraduates participate in the research poster presentation session or present their creative work. Both models allow students to discuss their achievements and talk with other students about their experience participating in research or creative exploration.
During the event, judges will use these criteria (as well as poster design and oral presentation skill) to give $2000, $1000, and $500 awards to the top posters nominated by their colleges, as well as to select a $500 poster design award winner from all posters. During each of the event’s two poster sessions, attendees can cast a ballot for their favorite poster to win a $1000 audience choice award.
Through Feb. 27, the Office of Undergraduate Research will be accepting 300-word abstract submissions from students interested in presenting their research or creative activity. Abstracts will be chosen to ensure that a range of disciplines are reflected, and will be selected according to the following criteria:
- Is there a clear statement of the research question or impetus for creative activity?
- Are the methods clear?
- Are the results or outcomes presented clearly?
- Are the conclusions justified?
