Brock Research Celebration 2014

The second annual Brock Research Celebration will be held on Tuesday, February 25th in the Guernsey Market.  The Brock Research Celebration will highlight the range of research excellence at Brock.

Information for Presenters

We ask that posters be on display for the day, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 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 2:30-4:30 to speak with celebration attendees.

Poster set-up is scheduled between 8:00 and 8:30 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 8:00 a.m. If you wish, you may submit your printed poster to us at the Office of Research Services (MC D250A) by Monday, February 24th, and we will mount the poster for you in the Guernsey Market Tuesday morning.

You can easily generate a QR code online at sites such as -- simply insert your web page URL to generate a QR code, then save the generated image file and insert it into your poster.
