Information about Poster Presentation 

The poster presentation is traditionally used by engineers, natural scientists, and some social scientists. Each poster will be critiqued by judges comprised of faculty, community leaders, and graduate students. 

**Please note: the poster, including any borders, attachments, or other associated elements, may not be larger than 3 feet all and 4 feet wide.**    

 

  • Poster presentations will be in Autry Court, inside Tudor Fieldhouse, from 4:30-6:00pm.
  • Each poster will be critiqued by a panel of judges comprised of faculty, community leaders, and graduate students. 
  • Judges will use this rubric to evaluate presentations.  
  • The poster, including any borders, attachments, or other associated elements, may not be larger than 3 feet tall and 4 feet wide.
  • Posters can be printed at Mudd Building Lab or at the Digital Media Center (Herring Hall 129).  Both of these printing locations will get quite busy in the days leading up to RURS.  Make sure to leave plenty of time to print your poster.  Presenters are responsible for all printing costs.
  • Presenters or their representatives should come to Tudor Fieldhouse between 11:00-2:00 on Wednesday April 16 to hang their posters.  If you or a representative are unable to bring your poster to Tudor Fieldhouse between 11:00-2:00 on April 16, please email RURS at rurs@rice.edu, no later than 12:00 noon on April 15.
