Update April 11, 2023: The Schedule for NOWCAM 2023 will be posted in the next few days 

 

INSTRUCTIONS FOR POSTERS & SPOKEN PRESENTATIONS

Posters:  We recommend printing dimensions of 3' (height) x 4' (width) for posters, but your poster may be a maximum of 4' x 4'. The posterboards are 4' (height) x 8' (width) and there will be one poster per board.

Talks:  Each speaker will have 10 minutes to give their presentation, followed by 5 minutes for questions. 

Day of Conference: Remember to bring your device (e.g. laptop) for your talk, as well as your display adaptor for HDMI output from your device. Don't forget the power supply for your device.

Presentation Tips & Advice:

First time at a conference?  Unsure of what to present?  Undergraduate students at NOWCAM presenting non-Honours-thesis research typically present their work as a poster.  Undergraduates presenting on their Honours thesis typically present the work as a talk or poster.  Graduate students and post-docs typically present their research as either a talk or poster.  Students are also warmly welcome to participate without making a formal presentation.  Don't be shy!
