Presentation Guidelines

  • Unless the project is a work of art or music, presentations should be in poster format
    • All posters should include: author’s name, title, and the elements of the scientific method or creative process and content
    • The title of the abstract and the authors’ names should be at the top in lettering at least one inch high.
    • Figures, legends, table and text should be readable from a distance of three feet.
    • Major results and conclusions should be stated succinctly and clearly.
  • Students are responsible for poster production and associated printing costs
  • Ask your faculty mentor for suggestions on where to print your poster. The Richter Library Creative Studio provides poster printing services. Visit their website for details.

  • Tack boards will measure 6’ wide by 4’ high. It is recommended that students bring a professionally printed poster, no larger than 4’ wide by 3’ high. The poster does not need to be mounted on poster board.
  • Students should bring pushpins, tape, scissors, staples, and other necessary supplies as they will not be provided on site
  • If students are unable to have a poster printed, please post sheets on the tack board as professionally as possible.
  • The audience for the project displays will be the RCIF attendees – University of Miami community of faculty, scientists, students, employees, and community members
  • Students will be emailed their respective presentation times along with an excuse letter to provide to professors at least one week prior to the RCIF.
