Presidential Research/Scholarship Poster Competition

University of Virginia President Teresa Sullivan recognizes the central role of knowledge creation and dissemination in the life of a great comprehensive university.  To recognize research and scholarship as a central part of the UVa mission during the Presidential Inauguration, we held a Pan-University Research Poster Competition to highlight high-impact and innovative growth areas for UVa research.  Due to this event’s popularity with faculty, students, and external visitors, we decided to hold it as an annual event.  The Third Annual Presidential Research/Scholarship Poster competition will be held on May 3, 2013.  Submissions will be due, uploaded to the website, by Monday, March 18, 2013. Please see the website for additional information.

 

Eligibility: Open to all post-docs, graduate, and undergraduate students.

Postdocs: This includes all postdoctoral fellows, research assistants and research associates at UVA

Graduate Students: Includes any student working on a degree of any type that is beyond an undergraduate degree at UVA

Undergraduate: You are currently registered as an undergraduate student at UVA

We strongly encourage faculty involvement, while we are not running a separate track for faculty, we are hopeful many of our faculty will participate through their students and postdocs.  Faculty may be named on posters, but students must be /first author and submit it.

We will select 3 “finalists” in each of the categories. We will have two separate tracks: postdocs/graduate and undergraduate students.

Three finalists in each Postdoc/ Grad & UG category and ultimately one winner for each:

e.g.        Physical & Environmental Sciences- 3 Grad/Post doc finalists -> 1 Graduate/Post doc winner

Physical & Environmental Sciences- 3 Undergraduate finalist -> 1 UG winner

 

Research Award Categories

Physical & Environmental Sciences

Engineering

Biosciences & Health

Humanities, Social, Behavioral, & Economic Sciences

All submissions will be on the VPR website.  After the judging session on Friday, May 3rd  all the posters will be on view in the Rotunda for the entire week of May 3-12, 2012, so that thousands of visitors can view them.

 

If your poster is chosen as a finalist you must to attend the judging poster session on May 3rd  and entertain discussion/questions from the “judging committee”. Each presenter will give a 1 min summary of their project to President Sullivan. This session is open to the public and we encourage you to attend even if your poster is not selected as a finalist.  All posters will be featured on the poster website. The previous posters are all available on the website.

 

PRIZES:  $500 travel funds to each winner. These funds will be transferred to a PTAEO in your home department to be spent on travel within the next 12 months. If the winner is graduating or leaving the university they are still eligible to receive the funds as scholarly travel reimbursement/fees.  If the winner does not want to use the funds they may elect to leave the funds for the department to use for scholarly travel of another person.  Funds must be spent or returned to the VPR office by May 31, 2014.

Designing Conference Posters

http://colinpurrington.com/tips/academic/posterdesign

In a previous life, Colin Purrington taught evolutionary biology at Hudson
University for fourteen years. Today, he engages in a wide range of
pursuits, including offering high-quality tips on designing conference
posters. He bills his suggestions as “gratuitous advice on how to prepare
posters for scientific meetings, research conferences, and similar gathering
of nerds.” His humorous tone belies a distinct commitment to this area of
visual representation, and his suggestions are contained with three areas:
“What sections to include”, “Dos and DON’Ts”, and “Presenting your poster”.
Visitors can skip around to any of these suggestions, and they will find
Purrington’s style both down-to-earth and practical. The information here
includes sample posters and basic suggestions about what information to
include on such a poster. One area not to miss is “Making sure your poster
doesn’t suck”, which recommends that potential poster-presenters have their
friends look at their work when they aren’t present and stick post-it notes
with suggestions on said poster. Overall, this is a great site, and one
that’s worth sharing with friends and colleagues. [KMG]

Presidential Inauguration Research/Scholarship Poster Competition

President Sullivan recognizes the central role of knowledge creation and dissemination in the life of a great comprehensive university.  To recognize research and scholarship as a central part of the UVa mission during the Presidential Inauguration in April, we will hold a Pan-University Research Poster Competition to highlight high-impact and innovative growth areas for UVa research.  A diverse committee will select 5 “finalists” in each of the 7 categories, and we will display these 35 finalists during the inauguration event.

The committee will view all of the finalist posters and select the winners in each of the 7 categories, with each top poster receiving a $500 prize (payable as cash or unrestricted PTAO), with additional prizes for best Undergraduate & best Graduate submission of $500.   President Sullivan will present the prizes to the winners at the inauguration.  All entries will be posted on the inauguration website to broadly showcase the research of the entire university.

We would like you to circulate this announcement broadly to spread the word of the competition.  Additionally, we urge you to reach out to your most active researchers and encourage them to submit posters for their research.  This is an opportunity to showcase your research and make your ideas visible to the world, on the public occasion of our first new UVa President in 20 years.
