Presentation Guidelines

If you’ve been selected to present at the showcase, here are some guidelines to follow based on the type of presentation.

Guidelines

Oral presentations are 12 minutes long, including Q&A.

Moderators will terminate presentations that run past 12 minutes.

Panels with Multiple Participants

If your presentation is part of a panel discussion with multiple participants, each participant will be allotted 12 minutes.

  • If each participant is presenting on a separate topic, submit separate abstracts. Please include the name of your panel discussion in the Special Needs section of the submission form.
  • If participants are presenting on the same topic, then submit one abstract with all participant names listed. Please indicate in the Special Needs section of the submission form that it is a panel.

Presentations will be conducted via Zoom with a faculty moderator. Viewers from Elmhurst University can attend live. The presentations will be recorded and viewable through the Elmhurst website at a later date.

Please arrive at your presentation room 10 minutes before the start of the session to check in with the moderator and facilitate setup.

If you’re doing a poster presentation, your poster will be digital. You may create your poster using any appropriate program (e.g., PowerPoint, Canvas, Google Slides). Although your poster will not be physically printed, maximum dimensions (for software setting purposes) are 48 inches wide by 36 inches tall. The digital file size should be no larger than 25 MB and be in PDF format.

Performances will be conducted live via Zoom. Those presentations scheduled during the Oral Presentation time are limited to a maximum of 12 minutes.

If your performance will last significantly less than 12 minutes, please indicate the estimated time in the Special Needs section of the submission form.

If your performance features multiple individuals presenting separate performances, you may submit your Artist’s Statement in one of two ways:

  1. Preferred: Each participant submits a separate Artist’s Statement. Please indicate the amount of time needed for the performance (maximum 12 minutes) and include the name of the overall performance group.
  2. One participant submits a single Artist’s Statement listing all the performers. Please indicate in the Special Needs section of the submission form the total time needed for the performances.

Musical performances during the Opening Ceremony are scheduled by invitation and do not require the submission of an Abstract or Artist’s Statement.

Please arrive at your presentation room 10 minutes before the start of the session to check in with the moderator and facilitate setup.

Artwork exhibited in the virtual showcase will be coordinated with faculty members of the art department. However, an Artist’s Statement is required for the exhibit to be listed in the Showcase Program.

We encourage artists to be available for questions during the Showcase Poster Session and Art Exhibit time.

Support Your Fellow Presenters

As a presenter, you know the value of an enthusiastic audience. That’s why we expect all Showcase participants to support one another by attending presentations and performances and viewing posters and art exhibits. We also encourage you to ask questions and talk with the presenters about their work.
