HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR RESEARCH:
To participate in the NAMS Research Symposium, all presenters must submit their abstracts to Dr. Bonnan via e-mail (Matthew.Bonnan@stockton.edu) no later than APRIL 12, 2013.
What to submit:
- Title of Your Research
- The Authors
- Faculty Sponsor (If they are not already an author)
- What Program in NAMS (Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Sciences, Geology, Mathematics, Physics)
The abstract should be no longer than 500 words, and should describe the research at whatever stage it is currently in. It is not necessary to have results, especially if the work is preliminary or in progress, and a hypothesis statement is encouraged but not required.
All of the items above must be submitted in the BODY OF THE E-MAIL. Dr. Bonnan WILL NOT accept attachments. ALL e-mails with attachments WILL BE DELETED.
When you submit your abstract, you should receive a confirmation e-mail. If you do not get a confirmation of receipt within 1 day of submitting the abstract, contact Dr. Matthew Bonnan or Dr. Tara Luke.
All abstracts will be printed in an abstracts volume. Abstracts sent after the April 12 deadline are not guaranteed to be printed.
Aim for a maximum poster size of 56 inches wide (across) by 48 inches tall (top to bottom) – this is a helpful suggestion, but if you print something smaller or larger, that is fine. Just keep in mind that you don’t want something so large that it will be spilling off the ends of partitions we will set these up on.
There are not necessarily rules for the poster, but in general the following information should be there:
- Your title
- The authors
- Your faculty advisor (if not an author)
- Your NAMS Program
- Your abstract
Here are some suggestions, but certainly not required:
- Your major points highlighted and in larger font size
- Use bulleted lists where possible to draw people’s attention to the main findings of your study
- Your hypothesis statement, if you have one, set off from the text and highlighted
- A picture is worth a 1,000 words — graphs, charts, illustrations all help make your point
- Acknowledgment of those who helped you
- Less is often more
WHAT TO EXPECT THE DAY OF THE EVENT, APRIL 19, 2013:
- Set up of posters will begin at 10:00 AM in the designated areas with the atrium between the C & D Wings.
- Student presenters must be present at their posters from 3:00-5:00 PM.
- When the symposium ends, students who wish to keep their posters must take them down.
- There will be awards given for the best posters!
- Refreshments and snacks will be provided.
We hope to see all of the NAMS students with on-going faculty-sponsored research on April 19!
