Final Exam/Project Poster Presentation - Software Visualization

For the Final Exam/Project Presentation a poster presentation of each project is required.  Each individual or group must construct a poster describing the results of the research project.  During the day of the final all posters will be displayed and presented.  A short talk must also be given for each poster.  Talks should be no more then 10 minutes (plus question/answer session).

Posters should be no larger then 30" X 36" (i.e., nine 8.5" X 11" pages arranged 3X3).  The best solution is to create one large slide in Power Point (or similar tool) and have it printed in media services.  However, this is not required but is good practice for doing a conference poster.  The posters will be arranged on the blackboards of the class room (276) with tape or magnets.

Below are some suggestions for making an effective research poster presentation.  It is adapted from an article by Lorrie Faith Cranor in ACM Crossroads, Volume 3, Number 2 (see
