2016 Annual Student Water Conference on March 24-25, 2016

About the Conference: The conference will consist entirely of student presentations to be judged by a panel of faculty members for providing constructive feedback to students in regard to their research presentation skills. Student activities will promote interaction among students of all disciplines. The conference includes two major lectures: the annual Buchanan Lecture and a Career Perceptions Lecture.

Oral Presentation Guidelines: Oral presentations will be made with PowerPoint. We will have a computer and projector for you to use. You can either bring your presentation on a flash drive or e-mail to before the conference. Please ensure that your presentation is approximately 15 minutes, which will leave 2-3 minutes for questions.

Cafe-Style Poster Presentation Guidelines: We will provide easels and poster boards (3 ft by 4 ft) for mounting your posters. You will be required to print your own posters and bring them to the conference. At the start of the session, poster presenters will give a brief, overview (maximum of 2 minutes) of their poster to the audience.

Awards will be given for outstanding student poster and oral presentations.
