Research Paper Presentations
Themester requires only an abstract or description to be submitted. Presentations will be limited to 10 minutes, including a question and answer period. Complete papers will be due on the day of the conference. If you are submitting a proposal for a group presentation, please designate one person to represent the group for the purposes of submission. Other members should fill out a registration form.

Poster Session
Poster sessions are generally informational fairs, during which presenters stand near their poster and discuss their research with conference participants. Posters are a means to present research and prompt further discussion one-on-one or in small groups.

Posters must be able to stand on their own and therefore should be tri-fold or set on a floor or table easel. If your poster is accepted, table space will be reserved for you. A limited number of table easels will be available for reservation. Please email to reserve one. Taping to IMU walls is prohibited. Posters should be no longer than 48" horizontal. Students might choose to use the large format plotter available at the Student Technology Center at the Information Commons to aid in the creation of their poster.

Creative Work or Performance
Creative work could include, but is not limited to, fiction, poetry, performance art or film. Please note the amount of time needed for the presentation of your creative work in your proposal submission.

Panel Discussion
A panel discussion presents multiple views of the same issue. A moderator usually poses questions to panelists.

Other Activities
Themester will entertain proposals for other conference activities.

Please contact if you have questions.
