Information for Presenters
We ask that posters be on display for the day, 8:30 a.m. to 3:15 p.m., to maximize the number of Brock community members who will be able to view your work. The posters will be displayed around the perimeter of the Guernsey Market. We request that presenters stand by their poster during the poster session scheduled from 1:00 to 3:00 to speak with celebration attendees.
Poster set-up is scheduled between 8:15 and 8:45 a.m. on the morning of the celebration. Posters are to be mounted on the poster boards with the thumb tacks provided. Please check in with the ORS representative who will be available in the Guernsey Market during the day starting at 8:15 a.m. If you wish, you may submit your printed poster to us at the Office of Research Services (MC D250A) by Monday, February 9th, and we will mount the poster for you in the Guernsey Market Tuesday morning. Poster takedown is scheduled between 3:15 and 3:45 p.m.; we request that all participants take their posters with them at the end of the day.

Poster Printing: If you would like ORS to print your poster for you, please submit your electronic file in one of the formats listed below to email@example.com  no later than Tuesday, January 27th. Please note that ORS will only pay for poster printing if your poster is submitted through our office; any printing done through other means will be at the researcher's own cost.
File formats accepted for printing: JPEG (.jpg, .jpeg), Microsoft Publisher (.pub), GIF (.gif), Microsoft Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf), TIFF (.tif), Microsoft PowerPoint (.ppt, .pptx), Postscript (.ps), Adobe Photoshop (.psd), Adobe Acrobat (.pdf), Adobe Illustrator (.pdf, .ai, .art), Fireworks (.png).
If you have audio visual requirements to accompany your poster presentation or any other special requests, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org  no later than Tuesday, January 27th to see if we can accomodate your needs.
QR Codes: If you would like to include a link to your research group's webpage or other website on your poster, a QR code can be used. A QR code generator creates a two-dimensional bar code which can be scanned by cell phones to link directly to a specific web page. You can easily generate a QR code online at sites such as goqr.me  -- simply insert your web page URL to generate a QR code, then save the generated image file and insert it into your poster.
We will also provide a table for displaying books written by Brock authors. A limited selection of books is being loaned to us by the Campus Store. If you wish to lend a copy of your book for display, please let us know.
