Presentation Guidelines:

The poster session will take place on Friday morning. Poster presenters will briefly explain their projects (5-10 mins) and their posters informally to the attendees, some of whom will serve as judges to determine the undergraduate who gives the best presentation of an outstanding poster. A monetary prize will be awarded to this student at the Annual CAMWS Business Meeting on Saturday morning, 8am-9:45am. You may set up your posters in the Lower Level Lobby anytime on Thursday, so that people will be able to view them.  You are welcome to spend time chatting with observers, but that is not required.  Stands and clips will be provided. Presenters are asked to remove their posters immediately following the poster session.
