|Student Registration and Poster Submission
Student Registration Form
Each student planning to attend (whether presenting or not) should should complete the online registration form. If you are presenting a poster with another student (or group of students), please make sure to indicate this on your registration form.
This year we plan to have four students present their work as a short talk rather than a poster. The KINSC Steering Committee at Haverford will select students for oral presentations based on their research abstracts. If you would like to be considered as one of the student speakers, you must register early (by September 10th) and indicate your interest to give a talk on your registration form. Student speakers will be selected during the week of September 10th.
Faculty Registration Form
Each faculty member attending should complete this registration form.
Posters must fit on the 4' x 8' boards provided, and the recommended size for each poster is 42 x 42 inches or 40 x 40 inches. Students may affix 8 1/2 x 11 inch pages individually onto separate poster board pieces or posters can be printed on one large sheet (but be sure it fits within the poster board dimensions).
Your poster should provide information about your research project, including Title, Author, Abstract, Introduction or Background Information, Methods, Results, Discussion, References and Acknowledgments.
Please bear in mind that a poster presentation is a visual experience. Please use large type (around 20 pt.) and try to keep your Methods section relatively short, about 1-2 pages long. Use diagrams, tables, and graphs in your poster.
Haverford students should refer to the KINSC poster printing information page.
