Students may only submit one individually-authored abstract. However, students may submit an additional abstract as part of a larger group project.
Students may submit an abstract for research or a creative project conducted at another institution and/or supervised by a non-OSU faculty member.
When and how will students present their work at the 23rd Annual Denman Undergraduate Research Forum?
1. There will be three (3) presentation sessions throughout the day.
Session times are as follows: Session 1 (8:00-11:00 am), Session 2 (11:00 am-2:00 pm) and Session 3 (2:00-5:00 pm). During the application submission process, students will identify their preferred presentation session. Students will be assigned to a presentation session on a first-come, first served basis. As there are a limited number of presentation slots available per session, students are encouraged to submit their application early to ensure the best chance of receiving their preferred presentation session.
2. Students can select to present their work as either an oral (podium) or poster presentation.
Oral Presentation: Students will create a slide presentation about their project. Oral presentations will be 15-minutes in length (10-minute presentation and 5-minute question and answer period). Oral presentation sessions will be facilitated by moderator. At least two faculty judges will be in the audience during each oral presentation.
Poster Presentation: Students will create and print a poster about their project. Posters will be displayed on a large easel. At least two faculty judges will visit students, at their poster, over the course of the two-hour session.
