HOW TO SUBMIT YOUR RESEARCH:
Download the Abstract Template. IMPORTANT – Abstracts will no longer be accepted unless they are entered on the Abstract Template. Send the completed Abstract Template to Dr. Bonnan via e-mail: Matthew.Bonnan@stockton.edu
The DEADLINE for ABSTRACT SUBMISSION is Friday, April 21, by 5 PM.
The abstract should be no longer than 250 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.
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 21 deadline are not guaranteed to, and will likely not, be printed.
NEW THIS YEAR – POSTER TEMPLATE FILE*
*If you have a poster that was presented at a scientific conference, please have your professor contact Dr. Bonnan so you don’t have to print another version of the same poster.
In order for your poster to be printed to the appropriate size, the poster MUST be made using the NAMS Poster Template. If you do not print the poster at the appropriate size, it will not be displayed or judged the day of the NAMS Research Symposium.
There are not necessarily rules for the poster, but in general the following information should be there:
- Your title
- The authors
- 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
YOUR POSTER SHOULD BE SUBMITTED BY YOUR PROFESSOR FOR PRINTING. THEY WILL NOT ACCEPT POSTER FILES SUBMITTED BY STUDENTS.
POSTERS SHOULD BE PRINTED AT LEAST 1 WEEK BEFORE THE EVENT (BY APRIL 21).
WHAT TO EXPECT THE DAY OF THE EVENT, APRIL 28, 2017:
- Set up of posters will begin at 10:00 AM in the designated areas with the C/D Atrium.
- 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 28, 2017!
