Guidelines for Oral Presentations


 

The audience for the conference and the paper presentations includes students and faculty from different departments associated with the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences (CSBS) at UNI, including history, geography, sociology, psychology, anthropology, social work, public policy, political science, textiles, design and gerontology, family studies, criminology, counseling, and gender studies. There will also be students and faculty members attending the conference from other disciplines and from both UNI and other colleges and universities in Iowa.  This diverse audience will foster a multidisciplinary experience and an opportunity to exchange ideas and expertise with others.

First authors on oral presentations (sometimes referred to as paper presentations) should be undergraduate or graduate students.

The submission deadline for paper presentations is April 5th 2015. To submit for this conference, you will need to write a short description of the project, known as an “abstract.” Abstracts should not exceed 200 words and they should provide a “snapshot” of the paper. Please indicate if you would like the paper presentation to be considered for a poster presentation if we are unable to accommodate your paper presentation request. 

If your submission is selected for the conference, you will need to prepare a 15 minute presentation.  The presentation should be about 15 minutes in length, and the university will have technology if you choose to use it (e.g., PowerPoint). 

We will post the final conference schedule online the week prior to the conference. Please ensure that you are present at least 10 minutes before your session so that you can familiarize yourself with the classroom and check any presentation files on the computer provided. If you are using computer technology, please bring with you a flash drive to upload your power point presentation to the computer.  We will have a timekeeper at each session, and it is professional courtesy to stay within the 15 minute time limit.  Thus, please do not exceed the time allotted to you.

All presenters are required to register for the conference.

For additional information you can contact the conference coordinators at csbs.conference@gmail.com.
